"We all know that millions of undocumented immigrants pay Social Security and Medicare taxes for years and sometimes decades while they work to contribute to our economy," said Sen. John McCain, Arizona Republican.So people who have broken the law for any number of years and taken gainful employment from Americans are now also going to enjoy retirement and health care from a system that is already going broke and will likely not payout to legal citizens who have also paid into it their whole lives.......fucking brilliant.
"The Ensign amendment would undermine the work of these people by preventing lawfully present immigrant workers from claiming Social Security benefits that they earned before they were authorized to work in our community," he said. "If this amendment were enacted, the nest egg that these immigrants have worked hard for would be taken from them and their families."
This is revolting to me. John McCain needs to get his facts straight. If workers are working here legally they will get any and all benefit they pay in, as any citizen would. If they are here illegally and working illegally, they deserve nothing. NOT ONE RED CENT. If they want benefit of being American citizens they need to become American citizens.
