Unbelievable: IRS sends $46 million in tax returns to 24,000 ‘unauthorized alien workers’ in Atlanta

As though the IRS couldn’t get any more bad press, a 2012 audit report shows that in 2011 the IRS sent more than $46 million in tax refunds to 23,994 “unauthorized” alien workers who all listed the exact same Atlanta, GA address.

According to TheBlaze, the report, conducted by the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration (TIGTA), was published last year at the request of members of Congress. It revealed 10 addresses in the U.S. that were issued anywhere from 1,846 to 23,994 tax refunds each. Four of those 10 addresses were located in Atlanta.

“Are you telling me we don't have a computer that spits that anomaly out,” Glenn asked on radio this morning. “There's nothing that says, ‘Hey, warning.’ Nothing?

TheBlaze reports the “TIGTA report explains that the IRS since 1996 has been issuing what it calls Individual Taxpayer Identification Numbers (ITINs) to both non-resident aliens who have tax liability in the U.S. and illegal aliens living in the U.S. but who are ‘not authorized to work in the country.’”

It looks like Washington has known about this abuse for the better part of a decade, with a 1999 TIGTA report specifically drawing attention to the ITINs problem:

“The IRS issues Individual Taxpayer Identification Numbers (ITINs) to undocumented aliens to improve nonresident alien compliance with tax laws. This IRS practice seems counter-productive to the Immigration and Naturalization Service’s (INS) mission to identify undocumented aliens and prevent unlawful alien entry.”

In addition to the 23,994 refunds in Atlanta, TheBlaze explains that the IRS assigned 15,028 unauthorized aliens ITINs at the same address in Dallas, Texas, and 10,356 ITINs at the same address in Atlantic City, N.J.

“So I'd like to know, where did these go? And where's all this money,” Glenn asked. “Did it go to drug dealers? Who did this? Tell me, tell me that you have 23,994 checks, there's no alarm that says we have made a check out to this address 2,300 times, I'm sorry, 24,000 times. No alarm?”

“You could understand it if they sent two different checks to the same address and screwed up that way,” Pat said. “You can't understand it when it's 24,000 checks to the same address and they are all illegal aliens? And it's 46 million in total? That's unconscionable.”

“Unauthorized" alien workers around the country have been able to scam the system for millions and millions of dollars for decades, while law abiding TEA Party members are audited.

“Maybe you should spend less time on the TEA Party and more time on this,” Glenn said. “And you know what? And you know who continues to work on this? The Senate and the House, continue to make sure that we've got even more benefits for illegal aliens. I don't know about you, but I think we've done enough here. I think we've done enough. I'm not interested in any kind of new legislation whatsoever on any of this stuff.”

Dallas Jenkins is a storyteller — and he's telling the most important story of all time in a way that many believed was impossible.

Jenkins is the creator of "The Chosen," a free, crowdfunded series about the life of Jesus that rivals Hollywood productions. And Season 2 could not have arrived at a better time — on Easter weekend 2021. Church attendance has dropped, people are hungry for something bigger than all of us, and many are choosing social justice activism, political parties, or even the climate change movement as "religions" over God.

This Easter weekend, Jenkins joined Glenn on the "Glenn Beck Podcast" to discuss the aspects of Jesus that often get overlooked and break through the misconceptions about who Jesus really is to paint a clear picture of why America needs Emmanuel, "God with us," now more than ever.

Award-winning investigative journalist Lara Logan joined Glenn Beck on the radio program this week to argue the Biden administration's border crisis is "enabling" drug cartels, allowing them to exploit migrants, use border wall construction roads, and cross the border much more easily.

Lara, who has witnessed and experienced firsthand some of the worst violence around the world as a war correspondent for CBS News, told Glenn it's "not an overstatement" to call the cartels in Mexico "the most violent and powerful criminal organizations on the face of the earth." And while they're "at war with us, we've been asleep at the wheel."

But Lara also offers solutions that the U.S. can enact to stop these horrific atrocities.

"There's more than 30,000 Mexican civilians who are massacred every year in Mexico by the cartels. And that's just the bodies that the Mexican government owns up to or knows about, right?" Lara said. "There's Mexicans buried in unmarked mass graves all across the country. I mean, everyone knows that the violence of the cartels is not like anything anyone has ever seen before. It even pales in comparison to, at times, to what terrorist groups like ISIS have done."

Lara went on to explain some of the unspeakable acts of violence and murder that occur at the hands of the Mexican cartels — 98% of which go uninvestigated.

"That's not unprosecuted, Glenn. That's uninvestigated," Lara emphasized. "[Cartels] operate with impunity. So the law enforcement guy, the policemen, the marine, the National Guardsmen, who are trying to do the right thing, who are not in the pocket of the cartels — what chance do those guys have? They've got no chance. You know where they end up? In one of those unmarked graves."

Have you noticed an insane number of companies "going woke" lately? There's a big reason for why this is happening NOW, and it's not just virtue-signaling. Big corporations, one by one, are pulling the trigger on an initiative that has been in the works for about a decade.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes the framework that was built and inserted into business schools all across the countries. Critical race theory, gender, and "social justice" were given a higher priority than just doing good business.

Glenn has the documents that reveal what's coming to YOUR business or the company you work for and what will happen to companies that don't comply. And what started out as an indoctrination at the university level is now being taught in public schools K-12. They're teaching our kids to be equity activists right under our noses, and the indoctrination is working.

First, President Joe Biden nixed the Keystone XL Pipeline, driving the price at the pump through the roof. Now, Secretary of Transportation Pete Buttigieg has floated the idea of taxing every mile you drive as a way to pay for Biden's massive infrastructure spending proposal. So much for buying an electric car to save money at the pump. It's almost as if they want you to feel the coming pain as deeply as possible.
