Should a FI report a non-US citizens credit to the credit bureaus if they do not have a SSN or ITIN? Pros/Cons?

That is up to you.

Social Security Number

Report the Social Security Number (SSN) of the primary consumer. Report only valid U.S.-issued SSNs.

Reporting of this information is required as the Social Security Number greatly enhances accuracy in matching to the correct consumer.

If the consumer does not have a SSN or one is not available for reporting, zero- or 9-fill all positions.
