"Republicans are looking to deny child tax credits to illegal [sic] immigrants -- refund checks averaging $1,800 a family -- in an effort that has roused anger among Hispanics and some Democratic lawmakers. The proposal, which would require people who claim the federal credit to have Social Security numbers to prove they're legal workers, is being offered as a way to help pay for extending the Social Security tax cut for most American wage-earners."
