More than half a million illegal aliens have social security numbers and corresponding benefits. They can collect disability, child benefits, widow/widower benefits, benefits in their 60’s from an already stressed and unsustainable system.
They have given in to the system but it’s all been done illegally, and they are being rewarded for their crime.
It’s also a path to citizenship.
It is one more step in blurring the lines between legal immigrants and illegal immigrants. It is being done without any regard for our Constitution or our financial capability to handle it.
The latest revelation is the tip of the iceberg and only one part of a complex, and wide-ranging open borders plan.
In a March 12 letter, Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) asked the Social Security Administration “How many individuals have applied for SSNs as a result of the June 15, 2012, memorandum issued by Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano entitled ‘Exercising Prosecutorial Discretion with Respect to Individuals Who Came to the United States as Children’?”
The answer is about 541,000. since the 2012 Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA). This will be multiplied many times over when all their relatives are automatically legalized.
The social security card does more than allow them to work, it blurs the line between legal and illegal immigrant and it was done unconstitutionally.
Janet Napolitano’s June 15, 2012 memo states that it does not confer a “substantive right, immigration status or pathway to citizenship” as such benefits are only conferred by Congress.
However, according to Sessions’ office, “an illegal immigrant who receives a Social Security number will be able to draw federal tax credits, Social Security retirement benefits, and Social Security disability benefits.
Jeff Sessions pointed out March of this year that USCIS admitted that an illegal immigrant who receives executive amnesty and subsequently receives “advance parole”—which allows illegal immigrants to re-enter the U.S. after traveling abroad—would be eligible to “adjust” to lawful permanent resident status (i.e., obtain a green card), and be able to apply for U.S. citizenship five years after that.
The illegal changes to immigration law by the administration are amnesty for the Democratic voting base of the future and not the distant future given these changes.
As of December 31 DHS had approved more than 787,068 DACA applications.
It is not the Dreamers who are the problem as much as their extended family.
DAPA will be more than 5-6 million. Actually, we don’t even really know how many will claim that status.
Does anyone think the Obama administration won’t legalize millions at the midnight hour of his administration? It will forever change America.
Border agents have testified that they are threatened if they do their job.
Barack Obama has made open borders and amnesty into a moral issue to excuse his flagrant violations of the law.
In November of 2014, Barack Obama equated oppression of foreigners to not opening our borders to everyone. He paraphrased Scripture, “Scripture tells us that we shall not oppress a stranger, for we know the heart of a stranger – we were strangers once, too.” What he was really saying is that our borders are open and it’s everyones’ right to come here. Eric Holder said amnesty is a “civil right”.
It is not about morals or rights or kindness. It’s about letting people in who will be grateful to them and will vote for them. It’s about our future one-party nation. That’s called socialism or communism.
