This is infuriating. I'm Canadian but my wife is an American citizen. She worked in the US for 11 years. So I figure she paid her dues and is entitled to something. Fairly enough she will receive 11/35th of a full social security pension.

But illegal Mexicans can get a full pension? That's nuts.

It may be academic, like others have said, since there isn't any money there anyways.

What's a "full Social Security" pension?

She's entitled ro receive something in proportion to what she paid in.

By the way. let me point something out from the article:

"Currently, around 94,000 beneficiaries living abroad have been brought into the U.S. system under the auspices of about 20 international treaties designed to help Americans sent abroad by their employers signed since 1977. The accords are mostly with European countries, but also include Canada and South Korea."

So, apparently either your entire problem is with Mexicans, or you didn't read the article before you posted.

Which is it?
