U.S.-Mexico Social Security Totalization Agreement

I sent the following e-mails to both Georgia senators and Congressman Westmoreland from the 3d District. If you are smart and you are on Social Security (or ever hope to be) I would advise sending this e-mail to our two Senators and your Congressman.

My e-mail:

"The Social Security Administration finally released a copy of the U.S.-Mexico Social Security Totalization Agreement in response to a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit. The document confirms fears that it could allow millions of illegal workers in this country to collect billions of dollars of Social Security benefits.

The Social Security Trust Fund is in deep trouble. According to the Social Security Administration, it will begin paying out more than it is taking in by 2017 and will be exhausted by the year 2040. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out that adding illegal aliens to the Social Security rolls will deplete this fund even faster. I don't care if they are paying social security premiums or not. By definition they should not be in this country and they should have no rights or privileges that are afforded a legal alien or citizen. Instead of finding ways to support the illegal aliens you should be finding ways to protect this country. Pass a law that prohibits any illegal alien from receiving any benefits from any city, state or federal program , including medical, health OR Social Security.

I want you to vote against act or, even better, sponsor a measure such as H. Con. Res. 50 from last session that would express Congress's disapproval of the totalization agreement.

Social Security was designed to protect American workers, not those who have broken our immigration and labor laws. I trust that you will defend it."

The SSA is only a "keeper" of these funds, the government earns a lot of money in interest from these monies, so they should consider themselves paid for the service. The actual money collected does not belong to the SSA but to the poor, exploited wetbacks who work like hell for reduced wages in order to put food on the table of their impoverished families (in Mexico or the U.S., location does not matter to poverty).

So now, what you are proposing is that the Senators sponsor a bill to confiscate that sweat money --- that would be called stealing, I believe.

Making you think twice......

First of all, there is NO SOCIAL SECURITY TRUST FUND that has a pool of money. Our elected representatives (Democrat and Republican) have long stolen the money for other purposes. If there were a lock-box, which there is not, it would be full of worthless IOUs. Second, they are ILLEGAL aliens, CRIMINALS, who here to steal our jobs that Americans will do when the greedy employers are willing to pay a decent wage.
Look at the Swift & Company who recently received some well-deserved raids on their industries. In 1986, they paid their AMERICAN employees $20.00 and hour but now they are paying illegal aliens, who are willing to work for far less, only $9.00 an hour. When the ICE raids hit the employer, Swift & Co had to raise their wages. Immediately they had long lines of Americans and legal immigrants willing to take the jobs but for more money, $11.55 an hour but far less that the old wages of 1986. Americans will work at any job but they will not do so at cheap wages. Hard work does not bother us, being cheated by businesses does. Illegals are criminals, simply put. Everyone who has slimmed their way into American needs to slime their way back to where they came from. Our corrupt politicians need to follow them. The US Chamber of Commerce needs to follow them. I do not owe any allegiance to anyone or country except for American(s). If I want to give money to Mexicans or other poor people I will, but I will not because there are plenty of poor people here in American. We are broke folks! Our politicians, Democrat and Republican have broken us! If Mexicans or other poor countries want more money then work at fixing the problems in their own countries and throw out the dictators and socialists who control them.

Well said and I believe you're right.

Social Security, Medicare, Georgia PeachCare, should only be for legal American citizens. When I'm old enough for Medicare there will probably be enough funds. I doubt there will be for my children.

PeachCare is running out of money. Why? In my opinion this is a good program, if the regulations are enforced.

I'm tired of my taxes being used by illegal aliens who use and abuse the system.
They are being allowed to do this!

Take the time and effort to become legal, I will welcome you with open arms.

There is a lock box in West Virginia in a government office where our SS is stored!
However, when you open the box, as they do every day, the only thing in there is government bonds in the amount that the government owes SS. Thes employees change the amount every day so as not to lose account of what is owed.
When the budget is done every year, the amount of bonds in that box is listed as debt, so we know that they owe it to us.
Of cours, when the time comes for you to draw your SS, they will simply print some more money and give it to you.

Well, your idea is good but the government simply can't keep collecting social security from an illegal worker and also his boss, and then refuse to pay it out at retirement time.
Only legal way: don't hire illegal aliens, even to pick Vidalias!
