Social Security for illegals OK'd
Senate blocks effort to limit benefits for those who become legal residents
© 2006 WorldNetDaily.com
The U.S. Senate today rejected an effort to limit Social Security benefits for illegal aliens who become permanent residents under an immigration reform bill being debated.
As it stands, the bill the Senate is considering would give millions of illegals a path to U.S. citizenship if they pay fines, back taxes and meet other requirements.
The Social Security proposal, offered by Sen. John Ensign, R-Nev., would have prevented illegals who become legal from collecting the benefit on wages they earned while working unlawfully.
"Social Security was not intended for people who entered our country illegally," Ensign is quoted as saying.
Countered Sen. Edward Kennedy, D-Mass.: "Their money sits in the Social Security Administration waiting to be matched with an eligible beneficiary, and once those workers establish the eligibility, how in all fairness can we deny them the credit for their past contributions?"
Reuters reported that later today senators will consider an amendment to the bill by Sen. James Inhofe, R-Okla., to make English the national language.
As WorldNetDaily reported, yesterday the Senate approved an amendment to the immigration reform bill that would direct the building of a triple-layer fence along 370 miles of the southern border with Mexico.
The Bush administration today indicated the president supported the fence proposal.
"[Bush] doesn't think you fence off the entire border but there are places ... where fences are appropriate, and then, you build fences there," spokesman Tony Snow said.
No wonder they want to come here..uggghh.
Don't waste your time. This troll is a hack, and at this point, most people are too cynical to listen to someone try to justify criminal activity.
(Denny Crane: "Every one should carry a gun strapped to their waist. We need more - not less guns.")
Sure. How 'bout a Rolex? A pension plan? First time homebuyer 0% interest rates? What the heck!
These are the warped moral priorities we see posted by many of the so-called "anti-illegal" posters here.
So all you can do is label those who disagree with you as "trolls and hacks"?
This, along with your total lack of ability to mount a coherant response shows just how pathetically weak your position really is.
I knew the arguments in these threads were weak, but it amazes me just how unwilling ya'll are to fight back against those of us willing to confront you on this issue.
See post 38 for the list.
Martinez is particularly grating, since the WH backed him over McCollum, a solid conservative, in the primary.
Now, they're doing the same thing to Harris, except this time, there's no strong RINO running against her. Now, she's just wounded by the Bush backstab- Jeb and George both, and unlikely to win.
Why is the Republican party so constatly stuck on stupid the last few years, anyone have a clue about this?
I want good conservatives in. I want the guys who did the contract with America. Seems these Republicans act more like they have a CONTRACT ON AMERICA.
As you say, it gets very frustrating, especially if you were born a logical person.
First to file wins!
Excelent recomendation. Both my wife and I get a copy mailed to us each quarter. I watch it like my credit report. If an employer ever shows up on the report that I have not worked for I will immediately begin straightening it out. If there are SS contributions then there are income taxes to go along with them - not to mention possible identity theft that includes credit cards, etc.
If they put down 10 dependents on their W-4 you get nothing because nothing gets withheld. Then the IRS comes after you for back taxes when they see you only have a couple of dependents.
It's absurd. Knowing that the SS system is in deep trouble already, why would anyone deliberately sabotage it by adding millions of illegals that won't contribute to it at all, or very little. And also knowing that the majority of Americans would be totally against this, since their ssn benefits will be stretched even further under an already strained system.
Something is extremely fishy here. Uh oh. I sense another conspiracy freakout coming on. Tri-lats, Illuminati, Globalists & Bildenburgs....damn you all to hell!
"He already has.
In June 2004, Bush's appointed SSA commissioner signed the Social Security Totalization Agreement with Mexico that gives, not only the Mexican illegal alien access to our SS benefits, but also allows him to apply for, and receive benefits for his Mexican wife and children, even if the wife and children have never stepped foot in the USA.
He's just waiting until he gets his amnesty program signed into law, then he's going to spring this one on us. Mark my words. The pieces are in place, he's just waiting to spring the trap."
You know the socialist DemRats are never going to give up that much of YOUR MONEY! Come on. Get real. They'll slime their way back into power, raise taxes, raise ssn, raise everything ELSE that we have to pay for, and they'll finally be happy. They're already taken over the media, unions and the public school system. They've infiltrated every single branch of government there IS, including city government office positions, and including the Republican Party. Let's face it....the Rep Party is our last and ONLY hope. If they betray us, we're screwed. If that happens, it might be time for another tea party.
"There is one GOOD hing about this... Maybe, when America is fully aware of the ramifications of this incredibly damaging decision, they will get on board with PRIVATIZING SOCIAL SECURITY. I would much prefer the gummint let me keep my money and invest it my way. I'd be a millionaire 3 times over by the time I retired."
Yeah...I think I'm in love! I've been following his career for years now. I even emailed him and asked that he consider running for Pres in '08. Hell, I'd pack up and move to Nevada or DC to work for him for free! (whew!) (is it getting hot in here?)
Anyhoo....what else can we do but deluge the WH and our reps with our emails & letters, faxes, etc.? How about an organized protest in every city (like the hispanics just did, only better)? Maybe it's time we get out of our comfy chairs, turn off our pc's and take it to the streets like the DemRats always do.
"Any Repulican that looks at this issue as just one issue and can't see how it tears at WOT, WOD, Taxes, Governament Size it simply not acknowledging reality. Wake up Republicans, if this goes through as is, many of our core beliefs (not just immigration) are in serious danger."
