llegal aliens to get rebates? Unfair, says immigration reform activist

Federation for American Immigration Reform doesn't think it's fair to hard-working American taxpayers and legal immigrants for some who are in the U.S. illegally to receive a rebate check from the U.S. government.

The Senate is still debating President Bush's economic stimulus package, which would give taxpayers cash rebates designed to jolt the economy. The House has already passed the $146 billion package.

But according to the Fox News Channel, among those who would receive a refund would be illegal immigrants who earned a minimum of $3,000 working in the United States. Only those illegal aliens who have been assigned an Individual Tax Identification Number -- which allows them to file income taxes -- would be eligible to earn up to $1,200 in rebates.
