Senate Approves Social Security For Illegals

It is not enough that the Social Security system is already in a crisis. The Senate goes ahead and approves a bill that would allow illegals to draw social security. Doesn't matter they are not 'citizens', not even legal entries into our country. But, yet, they would be able to draw upon social security!

Siding with the illegals, Vermont Democrat Senator Patrick J. Leahy said: "We should not steal their funds or empty their Social Security accounts. That is not fair. It does not reward their hard work or their financial contributions. It violates the trust that underlies the Social Security Trust Fund."

Senator John Ensign from Nevada tried to get through an amendment that would have prevented this from happening:

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.
