What credits/benefits do you get claiming non-resident children on taxes

Nonresident aliens. They live in Mexico and I am here in the USA.

What credits/benefits do you get claiming non-resident children on taxes

For tax year 2020 there are no credits that non-US citizen dependents qualify for.

 

For tax years 2018 and after non US citizen dependents will not qualify for either the child tax credit nor the other dependent credit.  The non-citizen dependents would also not qualify you for the Earned Income Tax Credit.

You are correct.  No need to have them on your return.
