Alien Nation

Posted by codemorse

From the Washington Times:

The Senate voted yesterday to allow illegal aliens to collect Social Security benefits based on past illegal employment -- even if the job was obtained through forged or stolen documents.

Contact your Senator and inform him of your opinion on this. Speaking as a self-described Liberal/Libertarian, this makes me livid. LIVID.

The issue of illegal alienage is a shell-game. By voting to allow illegals to collect SS, the Senate is rewarding the businesses who are getting rich off cheap, illicit labor, and rewarding those workers who take higher-paying jobs from American citizens.

I am not without compassion for illegals, but I am pragmatic - and SS is in enough trouble without this happening. It's almost as if the Senate is intentionally attempting to "crash" Social Security earlier than predicted, and it's hideous.

Go to Google, look up your Senator, and call them.
