The Latin Times cited data from the IPC's "Facts about the Individual Tax Identification Number (ITIN) " in a recent article titled "GOP Amendment Seeks To Deny Child-Tax Refund To Undocumented Children".
"A statement  released by her office then said that the credit 'currently costs taxpayers billions', an assertion challenged shortly afterward by Univision analyst Fernando Espuelas in a column  for the Hill. Espuelas pointed out that undocumented immigrants often pay taxes using the Individual Taxpayer Identification Number (ITIN), contributing what he described as a “net multibillion-dollar gain for the federal, state and local treasuries, even when factoring in the Child Tax Credit”. The Immigration Policy Center wrote  in 2009 that in 2001, the ITIN brought in $300 million in taxes from undocumented filers."
