It’s incredible how Democrats will argue that Republicans wanting less government interference is a bad thing (and Trump ran the country into the ground), then argue that more government intervention will solve problems (because Joe knows what to do).

If the IRS erred this badly under a conservative president, imagine how much worse it will get under a Democrat.

Here’s what’s up, via NPR:

Thousands of foreign workers who entered the U.S. on temporary work visas received $1,200 checks in error during the first round of stimulus payments, and many of them are spending the money in their home nations. One tax preparation firm told NPR that it has clients from 129 countries who mistakenly received stimulus checks, including Brazil, Canada, China, India, Nigeria and South Korea.

Government officials and tax experts say the mistake happened because many foreign workers, whether unintentionally or on purpose, file incorrect tax returns that make them appear to be U.S. residents. Some of them are now trying to amend their returns because they worry that having mistakenly received a stimulus check will jeopardize their visa status, green card application or ability to return to the U.S.

CONTINUED:

How much stimulus money was mistakenly sent to foreign workers living overseas is difficult to quantify. But Sprintax, which does U.S. tax preparation for nonresidents, did about 400 amended returns last year for people who mistakenly filed as U.S. residents, and so far this year it has done 5,000 — almost 5% of the total federal tax returns it filed last year, according to the company. If just 5% of last year’s more than 700,000 student and seasonal workers with F-1 and J-1 visas received a stimulus check in error, that would total $43 million.

So, do we get that money back?

Federal Judge Halts Biden’s 100-Day No Deportation Promise After Texas Lawsuit (Details)

A bit of good news, for now.

Something that cannot go overlooked about President Trump’s time in office is how he reshaped the federal judiciary. Everybody and their mother knows about Gorsuch, Kavanaugh, and Coney Barrett. Three Supreme Court seats in one term – even in two terms – is gigantic. The hundreds if not thousands of principled judges confirmed by the Senate under Trump’s watch, though, means America is ultimately going to be okay. From Fox News: A federal judge on Tuesday temporarily blocked President Biden’s attempt to put a moratorium on deportations for 100 days. After Texas sued over the policy, the judge blocked Biden, via a temporary restraining order, from moving forward for 14 days. Texas’ lawsuit claims that the administration would be violating an agreement it has with the Department of Homeland Security – and would require at least 180 days’ notice, as well as consultation, prior to implementing changes in immigration policy. It is unclear whether those terms are enforceable, but similar agreements were struck with several other states under the former administration. Biden has also said he will not build another foot of border wall. You know, because nothing says “I want to keep Americans safe” like allowing anyone and everyone to walk into the country, freely. Shame on this “president.”
