Petition circulating to keep social security money out of the hands of illegal aliens

We have just sworn a president into office for a second term. The most important subject that has been on the minds of every American and cabinet member has been gun control. Although that is an important topic, many of the other concerns we Americans seem to have been concerned about have gotten caught in the crossfire and are forgotten.

An email was forwarded to me this morning on a subject that just seemed to go dead in the water: social security. It started out by saying it doesn’t matter if you like or dislike the president, this will affect each and every one of us. Those who have paid into social security may soon lose what we have contributed.

The Senate voted this week to allow illegal aliens access to social security benefits, which should never be allowed. It seems as more laws are put into place, the American dream is becoming a vivid memory . The President needs to veto this bill. It is not right for illegal aliens to come to our country and take what we have worked so hard to achieve. If they want a piece of the pie, why can’t they work for it? First, they need to become a citizen of the United States. Secondly, they should have to work at least 10 years as a citizen with proper documentation.

As it stands now, illegal immigrants are estimated to have  received over $7 billion in federal tax credits last year alone thanks to a loophole provision known as the Additional Child Tax Credit. That’s more than quadruple what the payout was four years ago, but the payments have been steadily increasing over the past decade. Though illegal immigrants are prohibited from receiving similar tax credits, a quirk in the law allows them to qualify for the child tax credit. And, it’s a “refundable” credit, meaning recipients can reap the money — with average checks totaling about $1,800 — even if they haven’t paid any taxes. Illegal immigrants can qualify because even people not authorized to work in the U.S. are supposed to file returns with the IRS. If they don’t have a social security number, they are provided what’s known as an Individual Taxpayer Identification Number in order to file returns.

Employers are obligated to ask for a social security number, but they don’t have to confirm it is real. That has led to the printing of millions of false social security cards sold to newly arrived illegal immigrants.

The Social Security Administration notifies employers every year of social security numbers and workers that don’t match up. Employers tell employees they have to get new cards.”And they simply do it all over again the next year with a new number,” said attorney Greg Schell of the Migrant Farmworker Justice Project in Lake Worth, FL.

A false SS card, accompanied by a phony alien registration card — known as a green card — can be obtained for about $200 in Florida, said  Jeannie Economos of the Farmworker Association Florida, based in Apopka, FL.

Some immigrant advocates encourage illegal immigrants to save their check stubs in the hope that they one day might be able to claim their social security benefits, but Schell sees that as unlikely.

This is just one of the many programs that we as American’s are not told or familiar about. An email petition is being circulated, and the signatories are requested to email the petition to the White House when it receives 1,500 signatures. Although it is not an official White House website petition, if you see it come across your inbox, will you add your name?

  2. THIS IS NOT WHAT THE LATE SENATOR TED KENNEDY PROMISED AMERICANS?

    President Obama’s Legacy has a potential of more unemployment, taxes, spending by pressing for Immigration Amnesty; telling the poor of foreign countries that if you can slip past the border or arrive by plane, we will pay for your financial support.

    The Imperial court of President Elect Obama will be in session very shortly and many issues are on the Congressional list. Heed the warning that in the coming days that he is adamant on pushing through some form of amnesty for the 10 to 20 million plus illegal aliens already in the United States. The majority of people who remain unconcerned with politics, means that that they are unaware that conventional methods of being voted on in the House of Representatives, is being bypassed under this regime and not following the edicts of the U.S. Constitution? First it was the lone Obama authority to give a free pass to children of illegal aliens, which has been called the Dream Act. With the origin of the Dream Act which is children being smuggled unborn or in infancy across the thin, poorly guarded borders and agents unable to detect pregnant women arriving by plane from foreign countries that have arrived here for decades. Once on our soil they can gain as an inheritance citizenship for their progeny, which really was for the emancipation of slaves after the union and gray war. Americans must take fervent notice that their futures are in peril, with even more encouragement of illegal migrants and immigrants finding away to gain unauthorized entrance into our sovereign nation. In this 113 session of Congress the ardent listeners in other countries are going to try and reach the mainland.

    Birthrights Citizenship MUST BE CHANGED by Conservative voters, who acknowledge an amendment to the 14th Amendment, will save ultimately TRILLIONS OF DOLLARS. Citizenship given to children upon arrival is skyrocketing in free baby deliveries, free health care for all family members, and free education for all the children born now and later. Only the American citizens can financially reprieve us from this constant threat of females smuggling in their unborn and the U.S. Taxpayer carry the financial burden—without end. Then once the child applies automatic citizenship, it’s hard to return the Mother to the country where she belongs. It’s like a wordless guidebook of how to beat the welfare and immigration system, which eventually leaves to ILLEGAL CHAIN MIGRATION of the extended family. After more pregnancies the mother can collect substantial amounts of money for each child, plus low income housing. Then once settled, more relatives vanquish the border or alight undetected from a plane, this one way visitor, moves in with the family already here, finds a job and vanishes. It goes without say the door should always remain open for STEM workers, who have professional and skilled credentials? But even the most developed nations in the world cannot continue, if at all—to keep supporting other countries poor migrants and immigrants..There is obvious justification for a GUEST WORKER program, but currently it is run disorganized and full of fraudulent activities. AGJobs must be regulated and when contracts expire the labor must return home and not become extra welfare weight on the American public?

    Then we have the unknown numbers of illegal aliens in the workplace, while at least 23 million American and residents are either looking for a job, or have no choice to work in part-time employment. This should not continue and citizens an permanent resident holding green cards, should contact their Senators or Congressmen/women and demand they bring to the floor of Congress, the mandatory E-Verify “LEGAL WORKFORCE BILL”, so Washington must act of ridding illegal aliens who have your jobs. You can stand firm for all Americans by either using the Internet, your telephone book to see who is you servant locally, state or federal and make these laws active. Stop the special interests and Washington from selling you out. LEARN A LOT MORE AT JUDICIAL WATCH AND NUMBERSUSA.

    JUDGE FOR YOURSELF THE PROPAGANDA AND UNDERHAND ENGINEERED POLLS THAT COME FROM THE SPECIAL INTEREST GROUPS, THE MAINSTREAM PRESS MANIPULATED BY THE LIBERAL EDITORIAL AND OF COURSE OUR GOVERNMENT?

    ATTENTION: Obama lets Chinese own U.S. energy resources.
    Beijing is acquiring major ownership in oil, natural gas across nation. (Dr. Jerome R. Corsi) – The Obama administration is quietly allowing China to acquire major ownership interests in oil and natural gas. The decision to allow China to compete for U.S. oil and natural gas resources appears to stem from a need to keep Beijing economically interested in lending to the U.S. The Obama administration has run $1-trillion-plus annual federal budget deficits since taking office that likely will continue in the second term. As World Net Daily reported Monday, Beijing has been developing a proposal in which real estate on American soil owned by China would be set up as “development zones” to establish Chinese-owned businesses and bring in its citizens to the U.S. to work. All this and more will be revealed at TEA PARTY.ORG.
