Illegal immigrants will collect Social Security benefits beginning in 2017. Please
stop this, Congress!
Wonderful! Illegal aliens will begin collecting Social Security benefits by 2017. Let me say that again. Citizens of other countries who broke our laws, breaking into our country illegally, are going to be rewarded with that most progressive of voting incentives – CASH! – in the form of monthly Social Security payments.
Rhetorical question of the day: Just how stupid are we? VERY!
Go, Donald! Make America great again!
To understand just how unlikely that best-case scenario is, consider that we’ve only had a couple of months in the entire Obama era where the overall American workforce actually grew. Even in months where the headlines blare that the official unemployment rate has dropped, the workforce has almost always declined as well. Introducing millions of new job-seekers into such an economy by Presidential fiat is irresponsible lunacy.
The amnesty crowd’s biggest swindle has already been exposed as a ridiculous lie: the illegals aren’t going to be paying any “back taxes” to “earn” their citizenship.
They’re going to be able to collect money from the IRS through tax credits, up to $35,000 apiece. Now the Social Security Administration has confirmed that amnestied aliens will be able to collect benefits from it as well, as early as 2017.
