Reasons for allowing illegal immigrants to have citizenship:
1) They put money into the Social Security system that the politicians know the immigrants can’t collect on (not yet), so it’s more money to play with.
2) The money that they’re putting in the SS system, would’ve been put in there by the over 45,000,000 people we’ve aborted since 1973, so it’s a nice gift and allows the dramatic loss of goods/services/investments/lives that the abortions have cost us.
3) [and this is the most important one to both parties] They’ll illegally vote (as they’ve already been doing in Texas), and guess which party they’ll illegally vote for? Right! (Well, the RINOs hope that they’ll get a few illegal votes because, after all, they’re kinda’ going along too)
So, the illegal voters are doing only the Washington 535 + Bush people’s a favor, but not a favor to us, the little people.
I’m surprised that the unions haven’t been squealing like stuck pigs on illegals 1) taking away work from potential members, and 2) from allowing the free market to raise the hourly rate for such work. Again, it’s the Washington mind versus the little people they represent.
Let us pray.
Yes and no. SS is a pay as you go system. The revenue that is "surplus" to the system, i.e., the amount left over after benefits, is put into the General Fund and can be spent on anything. The Treasury issues non-market T-Bills for the "surplus" and deposits them into the SS Trust Fund. The SS Trust Fund really represents a liability not an asset, which is why the SSTF is included as part of the National Debt under intragovernmental holdings.
So the illegals' SS contributions could be seen as adding to our national debt. Their contributions have already been spent.
They see it as a giant organizing campaign for more dues.
