HOW CHUCK SCHUMER FAILED U.S. TAXPAYERS ON IMMIGRATION REFORM BEFORE
As the April 15th deadline for U.S. taxpayers approaches it's good to remember how politicians like New York Senator Charles Schumer FAILED in previous immigration reforms to make sure that those in this country illegally actually paid their taxes. Here is exhibit A:
"On January 28, 1987, then-Rep. Schumer wrote a letter to the Secretary of the Treasury, urging the government "immediately" to issue a regulation declaring that illegal aliens applying for permanent residence pursuant to IRCA were exempt from section 6039E. Schumer argued that Congress "did not intend" that illegal aliens amnestied by IRCA would be subject to the tax disclosure requirements that Congress had enacted two weeks earlier. According to Schumer: "Obviously, we could not have a successful legalization program if by submitting an application an alien became vulnerable to an enforcement action by the IRS." MORE HERE
We could not trust Schumer then and would should not trust him now.
