I know there's US$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 peopletax credits that they shouldn't get,” Sessions said. Now, these are mostly Mexicans, and those kinds of things add up, he asserted. US$4 billion a year for 10 years is US$40 billion. There are a lot of ways we can find money to help pay for this.
