It was only a matter of time before illegal aliens would receive the same benefits as an actual American citizen. Obama has degraded most everything about being a U.S. citizen, so why not go after Social Security.
When a child is born they are issued a social security number. This number will stay with them for the rest of their lives and will be one of the most important ways to identify that they exist. They were first issued in 1935 as part of the “new deal” social security program. They were primarily used for tracking income of U.S. citizens and are used for a host of other reasons including credit cards, medical records, and enrolling in school.
Obama’s 2012 plan, which was the first part of his amnesty blueprint, covered the “Dreamers” who are young adults that are illegal. By the end of 2014, roughly 639,000 social security cards were approved and issued based on this plan.
The Internal Revenue Service has confirmed that anyone who is an illegal alien but has a social security number, can go back and claim refunds from the time they were working illegally, even if they never filed a return. U.S. citizens who have worked hard and who have paid into the system for government benefits will be directly affected.
A spokesman for Senator Jeff Sessions said, “This grant transfers jobs, wealth and benefits from marginalized U.S. workers directly to illegal workers. One of the most dramatic costs of amnesty, whether legislative or imposed through executive diktat, is the opening of our federal Trust Funds to large numbers of lower-income illegal immigrants.”
How is this fair to the American citizen or a person who is trying to come to America legally? Illegal aliens broke our laws and should be held accountable but instead Obama wants to reward them. They should be rounded up and shipped back to Mexico at the expense of the Mexican government. Why hasn’t Mexico been held accountable?
It’s reported that in 2013, the U.S. gave $265 million dollars to Mexico in foreign aid. Many citizens of Mexico have no running water, electricity, or even a roof over their heads yet the government receives millions. Time to cut foreign aid to Mexico and secure our borders.
The United States has been the welcome wagon to illegals and their children that flooded the border last year. They have been provided medical care, food, a place to sleep, social security numbers, welfare, schooling, driver’s licenses, and even teddy bears. In return they gave us diseases, gang violence, human trafficking, welfare darlings, and drug lords. Seems like a fair trade.
