Legislation to eliminate Social Security for Illegals Proposed

ALERT! Legislation would eliminate Social Security benefits for illegal aliens!
http://capwiz.com/caps/home/

Representative Dana Rohrabacher (R-CA) has introduced the No Social Security for Illegal Immigrants Act of 2009. HR 2287 would prohibit wages earned while working illegally in this country from being credited towards Social Security benefits.

The Social Security system was designed to provide benefits for American workers and their families. Its intent was not to benefit those who break our immigration laws and labor laws.

To stop illegal immigration we must eliminate the jobs and benefits that attract new illegal aliens. This bill would amend the Social Security Act to "exclude from creditable wages and self-employment income wages earned for services by aliens illegally performed in the United States and self-employment income derived from a trade or business illegally conducted in the U.S."

ACTION NEEDED

Please ask your Representative to support this measure. Send a fax or an e-mail by entering your ZIP Code and clicking "Go!" below. (Go to link above to find proposed legislation and letter to send or you can just copy the letter below and send it.)

Sample Letter:

Re: Illegal aliens should not receive social security benefits.
To: Representative ________________:

The Social Security system was designed to provide benefits for American workers and their families. It was never intended to benefit those who break our immigration laws and labor laws. I encourage you to support the No Social Security for Illegal Immigrants Act.

Illegal immigration is one of the most serious problems this country faces. Our priority must be to eliminate the jobs and benefits that attract new illegal aliens. This bill would prohibit wages earned while working illegally in this country from being credited towards Social Security benefits.

Beyond that, it helps eliminate the potential for fraud and abuse. Millions of lawbreakers with unverifiable work histories in the Social Security system could create a financial disaster.

H.R. 2287 offers a first step in addressing our immigration crisis. I hope that you will support this reasonable measure.
You!

    Hospital Corporation of America will lobby hard against any such legislation as it allows them to bill the government three times: Social Security, Tax write-off, Corporate uncollectable debt.

    Just another way taxpaying Americans are being screwed over.

    The real question is not why should we ban illegal from getting S.S. benefits, it is why should we allow them to?

    If you're not even going to make the effort to become U.S. citizens or immigrants, then in my perspective: too bad, so sad.

    The government doesn't check for illegals so how in the hell are they going to stop them from obtaining a SS card with their fake driver's license? The cat is already out! They need to do a sweep of existing beneficiaries - I bet the percentage of illegal beneficiaries is significant.

    Well, this is a step in the right direction. No benefits for those here illegally. Make them pay taxes like the rest of us and be legitimate citizens.

    Too bad he didn't stick to it. I'm all for huge fines for those found hiring and employing illegals. No demand = no supply. I'm also for making it easier for other nationals to become citizens. We need all the tax dollars we can get!

    That's how Microsoft keeps wages down - by arguing for more H1B visas to import Indian software engineers.

    What the country needs is a pro-business environment to create a larger manufacturing base to employ American citizens, not importing people to compete for American jobs.

    What the country needs is to clear out Washington, telling them "no" more spending!

    What the country needs is for its' citizens to take more personal responsibility.

    Sorry, but the guy below blocked me so I returned the favor. I was going to reply to his post that we need the E-Verify program reauthorized so that employers who want to obey the law have a way that has been proven to be effective to eliminate the risk of hiring illegals. Also, most of the illegals coming here are uneducated, unskilled workers and they will siphon off more in benefits then they will ever contribute in taxes.

    I like the idea but it needs to be more clear and to the point. It's about social security and illegal immigrants and we throw in illegal conduct of American citizens, which has nothing to do with immigration... Make another bill for that, don't lump these two together.

    (Oh, and yea, I support it and I'm Liberal, so fuck you people who are going "Oh, liberal's wouldn't let it pass." Dumbfucks.)

    Social Security has gotten out of hand.
    It was meant for only people that PAID into it, or disabled children of those that paid into it. BUT not for illegals etc.
    If the stupid government would stop putting the SS money into the general fund to spend willy-nilly and manipulating the funds, we would not be in such dire straits with the program.

    Amen, they just could not leave all that lovely money sitting in the SS Trust Fund when they could be spending it to buy themselves more votes. I would love to have a forensics audit done on the SS Trust Fund to find out where all the money has gone. I think that everyone in the country would get a big surprise and it would not be a pleasant one either.

    Isn't this a twist on taxation?! Imagine the thought that government would even consider doling out Social Security Dollars to non-citizens. Seems like a bad dream, but unfortunately all too real!
