There's only one rational answer: They're insane.

I watched the debates on C-Span this afternoon, concerning one of the amendments proposed to the amnesty for illegal aliens immigration reform legislation before the Senate.

The purpose of the amendment is quite simple and straight forward:

To reduce document fraud, prevent identity theft, and preserve the integrity of the Social Security system, by ensuring that persons who receive an adjustment of status under this bill are not able to receive Social Security benefits as a result of unlawful activity.
In other words, IF an illegal alien has been working and part of their pay went into Social Security because they'd ripped off someone's Social Security number (which, by the way, is a felony), IF they become "regularized" they can't, then, go back and then make a claim and be rewarded for their illegal actions.

When an illegal alien becomes "regularized" (the Senators debating used that word a lot) and start paying into Social Security under their own identity, fine and dandy. No problem. That's when their Social Security record starts.

Makes sense, doesn't it?

Aside from identity theft being illegal, it may have caused or will cause a problem for the U.S. citizen who . . .

  1. Has been a stay-at-home mom since 2000 who got a bill from IRS for back taxes on $1 million on earned income in 2004, when 218 illegals used counterfeit Social Security cards with her number on it.

  2. Applies for Unemployment Compensation and is told they're not eligible because based on their Social Security number, they're still working . . . in lotsa different places.

  3. Gets turned down for a job because based on their Social Security number, they're already working for the company.

  4. Has their own, actual, official and real Social Security records deleted by the SSA because so many illegals have used that number, there's no way to sort anything out. So, the file is wiped clean, and now it's up to the U.S. citizen to come up with W-2s going back umpteen years IF they want to file a claim and expect an eligibility determination.
Those are a few of the actual examples given, but guess what?

By a 50 - 49 vote, our glorious United States Senate sided with the illegal aliens.

Alzheimers, dear Paula. Alzheimers.

Businesses get cheapest labor and politicians pander to potential Hispanic voters while collecting big campaign contributions from those that they're trying to provide cheap(est) labor for.

Flee across the boarder is just a bit more accurate.

Funny thing, though, that driver getting shot and killed. How was he to know that the the customs and border agents who were aiming their guns at him, would actually shoot when he tried to run them down.

(The coyote, the driver's partner and a passenger, was uninjured and arrested. The four illegal aliens they'd picked up before they were spotted, also uninjured, will be deported.)

Arrogance is the basis for their actions. They actually believe they can be reelected by corporate money and appeasement to foriegn interests.We will see what mainstream working americans will do in upcoming elections.There has never been a more favorable atmosphere for a third party success.I have solutions instead of unengaged,uninvolved whine.Delbert W.
