No. The maximum child tax credit is $2,000. Children with ITINs and other dependents that don't qualify for the $2,000, may instead be eligible for the $500 Credit for Other Dependents.

If your child turned 17 in 2019, you no longer get the child tax credit.  You now get the other dependent credit ($500 max). The child can still be your dependent and EIC qualifier
