April 23 (UPI) — “U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions said Sunday the proposed wall along the United States-Mexico border could be paid for by reducing erroneously issued tax credits that the former Alabama senator claimed go to “mostly Mexicans.”
“We’re going to get paid for it one way or the other,” Sessions said on ABC’sThis Week. “I know there’s $4 billion a year in excess payments, according to the Department of the Treasury’s own inspector general several years ago, that are going to payments to people — tax credits that they shouldn’t get. Now, these are mostly Mexicans. And those kind of things add up — $4 billion a year for 10 years is $40 billion.” More here. AG Sessions: Erroneous tax credits to ‘mostly Mexicans’ could fund wall
