IRS is Handing Out Stimulus Checks to Foreign Students

Published

on

Immigration restriction organization Numbers USA reported that a tax filing error has “led to thousands of foreign students who performed work in the United States to receive $1,200 stimulus checks.” A substantial portion of the stimulus recipients are no longer stateside, but worked in the U.S. while living in the country on an F-1 student visa or a J-1 cultural exchange visa.

According to Politico, the foreign students used one of the online tax providers to file their tax returns. The online providers mistakenly filed “resident” tax returns for the students. Under normal circumstances,  the providers should have filed “non-resident” returns.

The CARES Act, which Congress passed last month, provides automatic tax refunds for tax filers making less than $99,000 or married filing jointly incomes that fall below $198,000. Congress originally attempted to bar all individuals who are not U.S. citizens or Legal Permanent Residents from having access to the tax refunds. However, the IRS has a definition for “alien residents” that greatly differs with the definition outlined according to immigration law. As a result, this discrepancy has led to some nonimmigrant, foreign workers currently living in the U.S. to receive the refund.

Numbers USA noted that “the foreign students receiving the tax refund is not due to the difference in definitions, however. It’s purely due to a filing error, and it not being caught by the IRS.”

Neither the IRS nor Turbo Tax, an online tax filing provider, responded to a comment request from Politico.

This case represents one of the multi-faceted problems with mass migration.

The Trump administration will need to get serious on the matter and find ways to curtail birthright citizenship, put the clamps on visa expansions, and ultimately implement a moratorium on all migration.

He will not only need to be re-elected but also secure both Republican control of the House and Senate to see any meaningful reforms through.

The very health of America as a viable nation-state is at stake.

White Pill: Montana House Moves Constitutional Carry Bill Forward

Constitutional Carry is one ray of hope for the Right.

Published

on

On January 20, 2021, the Montana House of Representatives passed Constitutional Carry legislation, HB102.

Dean Weingarten of Ammoland.com reported that the bill passed by a 66 to 31 margin.

Weingarten provided some context to the significance of this bill’s progress:

The bill is the accumulation of a decade and a half of struggle against Democrat Governors, who have repeatedly vetoed reform legislation passed with large majorities in the legislature. Numerous sections in the bill show the Montana legislature has learned the lesson from other states as they restore the right to keep and bear arms.

Montana’s Senate is made up of 31 Republicans and 19 Democrats and Governor Greg Gianforte is a Republican, so the passage of this bill augurs well.  If passed, HB102 would make Montana the 17th Constitutional Carry state.

Montana is already a very gun-friendly state, and represents a low-hanging fruit for Second Amendment activists to tap into.

Constitutional Carry has been one of the most successful movements on the Right over the past twenty years. It’s easy to complain about the corrupt status quo, but there are still plenty of ways right-wingers can score victories. Constitutional Carry is one of them.

It would behoove the Right to analyze existing trends and build off movements that are already producing results. There’s no need to embark on quixotic campaigns that end up being total fools’ errands. Find what’s already working and run with it.
