In recent months, advocates have noted the chilling effect proposed and actual policies that impact immigrant families have had in the context of access to government programs and services. Tax filings during this past tax season may also be part of this story as advocates fear that immigration policies kept undocumented immigrants from filing tax returns on time. The recent proposal to cut access to the CTC for mixed-status immigrant families is another step in this direction. CLASP lays out the reasons why all children should have access to the CTC in this fact sheet. As noted above, the EITC Funders Network will partner with GCIR and GIST on a webinar focused on immigrant access to public benefits and tax credits this Fall. More details coming soon.
