Senate gives Illegals Social Security Benefits

According to the United States Senate, the answer is "YES!"


Dear Readers of the Bosun's Blogs: Below is an urgent message from and Center for Individual Freedom. Please take a few moments to read this important post. Request that you give this the widest dissemination!! Thank you, Bosun

Ths front-page headline in Friday's Washington Times according to Times reporter Charlie Hurt: "The Senate voted yesterday to allow illegal aliens to collect Social Security benefits based on past illegal employment -- even if the job was obtained through forged or stolen documents."

This is what happened...

As the Senate continued to debate immigration reform legislation this week, Senator John Ensign offered an amendment that would have prevented illegal aliens who engaged in unlawful activity within the Social Security system from receiving benefits. The Senate effectively DEFEATED the Ensign amendment by a vote of 50-49 !

You can view the actual roll call vote here.

After the vote, Senator Ensign stated: "There was a felony they were committing, and now they can't be prosecuted. That sounds like amnesty to me... It just boggles the mind how people could be against this amendment."

Senator Ensign is right!

Idiocy like this is just the very reason why we MUST bombard Senate and House fax machines with letters demanding NO REWARDS and NO AMNESTY for illegal aliens -- Period!

The American people overwhelmingly want secure borders first!

Let's drive that message home. Use the hyperlink below to send your URGENT Blast Faxes to President Bush and the Republican and Democrat leaders of the Senate and the House of Representatives.

Tell them that President Bush's speech to the American people on Monday evening is not a free ticket for THEM to pull the wool over our eyes and move full speed ahead with plans to grant amnesty to more than 10 million illegal aliens while our backs are turned and our attention is diverted. Demand that they suspend debate on any and all amnesty provisions once and for all.

Demand they focus solely on securing the border!

dittos. This is insane. I've been writing my Senators and am not going to let up on this. Our president is on the wrong side of this issue.

Thanks, Tom. Request the widest dissemination on this important issue. Social security will be broke with the Senate using it as their own slush fund and vote buyer setup.

Have a good day.
