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."

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.
