Undocumented Workers and Taxes

“The Internal Revenue Service allowed [emphasis mine] undocumented workers to collect $4.2 billion in refundable tax credits last year”

Undocumented workers got billions from IRS in tax credits, audit finds – The Federal Eye – The Washington Post.

What’s your take on this story after you read it and actually think about it for a couple mines.  Does this story highlight undocumented workers getting away with something, or does it show us more. What is a TAX CREDIT?  Look up the definition and included it in your post.  What does a “tax credit” logically entail?  Does that surprise you?

In the quote above, does the use of the word “allow” suggest that undocumented workers are getting away with something? Are they?
