The Sacramento Bee is reporting that Assembly Democrats want Gov. Jerry Brown to expand the state’s Earned Income Tax Credit in such a way that people who do not have Social Security numbers can apply for it.
That’s Leftist code-speak for undocumented immigrants.
The proposal is meant to help poor Californians recover some of their state income tax.
According to the Bee, a household with two children and an adjusted gross income of up to $22,309 would be eligible for a tax credit. The maximum credit for a family of that size is $2,467.
OK, a tax break for undocumented immigrants being pushed by Assembly Democrats and Governor Brown really isn’t news.
As you would expect, a long list of immigrant and social service advocacy groups support the effort.
What is significant is no organization is on record as opposing the expansion. Only one Republican, Assemblywoman Melissa Melendez of Lake Elsinore voted against it in a committee hearing.
