Administrative Changes that Trump COULD Make

The first one - no one gets a tax credit if they use a Taxpayer ITIN (Individual Taxpayer Identification Number). If you are a citizen, you have a Social Security Number. If you are a LEGAL foreign resident, you have a ITIN - but, should NOT get a tax credit for having low income.

If you are illegally residing in the USA, you shouldn't even BE here, let alone get money for not earning enough.

It may not be CALLED welfare, but that's what it is. Money, not because you earned it, but because you are broke.

There's more on the link, including the fact that the LAW already says that you are not entitled to get that money, under PRWOA - the Personal Responsibility and Work Opportunity Act of 1996 (passed while Bill Clinton - that AWFUL Conservative Republican - was in charge). In addition to barring welfare benefits, it also forbids "any other similar benefit for which payments or or assistance are provided to an individual, household, or family eligibility unit by an agency of the United States or by appropriated funds of the United States".

That denial of the UNEARNED tax credit would ALSO include those foreigners who were given amnesty by Obama - about 700K of them. It shouldn't take much work to identify them, and flag their irregularly-obtained Social Security number as "ineligible for any benefits/assistance".

Seems to me that covers an awful lot of goodies that illegal aliens are currently getting. It may include a lot of the money that is going to resettling the incoming aliens - much of the cost is ultimately borne by the taxpayer, although many of the agencies are all over themselves about their 'charitable work'.

If you take money from unwilling taxpayers to cover the cost of that work - it ain't charity!

It will take some time to implement all of this, with Democrats/Leftists screaming at Trump all the while. MUCH of this is an administrative decision - what we call properly part of the Executive Powers.
