Petition; Claiming Illegal Aliens Access to Social Security Benefits

Home » Petition; Claiming Illegal Aliens Access to Social Security Benefits

Recently, a resurgence of this email variant has been making the rounds on the Internet again.

SOCIAL SECURITY CHANGES

It is already impossible to live on Social Security alone. If the government gives benefits to ‘illegal’ aliens who have never contributed, where does that leave those of us who have paid into Social security all our working lives?

As stated below, the Senate voted this week to allow ‘illegal’ aliens access to Social Security benefits. Attached is an opportunity to sign a petition that requires citizenship for eligibility to that social service.

Instructions are below. If you don’t forward the petition and just stop it, we will lose all these names.

If you do not want to sign it, please just forward it to everyone you know.

Thank you!

To add your name, click on ‘forward’.. Address it to all of your email correspondents, add your name to the list and send it on.

When the petition hits 1,000, send it to comment@whitehouse.gov

Claims: False but based on truth

This petition misrepresents a recent Congressional vote regarding payment of social security benefits. As with the majority of forwards of this type, they take an actual event and twist it. Read this article on the effectiveness of this particular petition variant.

In addition, I recommend the following article to clarify the actual issue and subsequent Congressional vote this email petition references.

  1. Well, is it true or not. Don’t give us anymore of this wiggle-talk. “Claims: False but based on truth” it is either yes or no and I for one want to know. I can’t find it in my heat to NOT believe it as the GOP is sailing full speed ahead to ruin Obama and they don’t seem to care who else gets in the way. What a group of monkeys!! So glad they out and wish they were out of the Senate too.

    1. Betty, if you need an answer to the obvious then it is No; of course it’s not true. This is inaccurate information being forwarded by idiots that have nothing better to do than spread misinformation because it fits their agenda. A simple Google search to attempt to verify the claims prior to passing it on would stop this kind of rumor cold. For those who think the liberal media has taken over the internet a call to their elected Senator or State Representatives office would do the trick as well. But that’s too much work for the idiots that pass this like herpes, that’s why unsubstantiated messages like this makes the rounds on the internet every second of the day. Because people take it on face value and comment and discuss the matter as if it was a great stock tip that just happen to drop in their lap. But what they fail to mention is that it was acquired from a homeless man under the nearest interstate overpass and not from an insider on Wall Street. Shame on the mindless idiots who without a thought participate in these misleading and erroneous forwards.

      Inform yourself and participate in our great nation. Don’t settle and become a specator. Your vote counts.

  2. I think that they should do it bcuz if it wasn’t for those illegal alliens like most people call them, taking all the hard jobs working under the hot sun from dusk till dawn. The united states would be the way it was. We should actually thank them instead of running them out

    1. Government will tell you Americans don’t want the jobs.

      But the bottom line is cheap labor. The phrase “cheap labor” is a myth, afarce, and a lie. There is no such thing as “cheap labor.”
      Take, for example, an illegal alien with a wife and five children. He takes a job for $5.00 or 6.00/hour. At that wage, with six dependents, he pays no income tax, yet at the end of the year, if he files an Income Tax Return, he gets an “earned income credit” of up to $3,200 free.
      He qualifies for Section 8 housing and subsidized rent.He qualifies for food stamps..
      He qualifies for free (no deductible), no co-pay) health care.
      His children get free breakfasts and lunches at school.
      He requires bilingual teachers and books.
      He qualifies for relief from high energy bills…
      If they are or become, aged, blind or disabled, they qualify for SSI. Once qualified for SSI they can qualify for Medicare. All of this is at (our) taxpayer’s expense .

      He doesn’t worry about car insurance, life insurance, or homeowners insurance.

      Taxpayers provide Spanish language signs, bulletins and printed material.

      He and his family receive the equivalent of $20.00 to $30.00/hour inbenefits. 
      Working Americans are lucky to have $5.00 or $6.00/hour left after paying their bills AND his. The American taxpayers also pay for increased crime, graffiti and trash clean-up. Cheap labor? YEAH RIGHT! Wake up people! THESE ARE THE QUESTIONS WE SHOULD BE ADDRESSING TO THE PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATES FOR EITHER PARTY. ‘AND WHEN THEY LIE TO US AND DON’T DO AS THEY SAY, WE SHOULD REPLACE THEM AT ONCE!.’

  3. i disagree that illegal aliens will claims social security! they need to work on their papers to be a legal and lawful alien before they could claim ssi. we walk through our processing our papers to be a legal alien here so i wish it should be treated the same way as we process it . also some illegal doesn't pay taxes and they working under the table instead of giving it to those citizens. i understand that they are hardworker but when you looking at the way it is unfair and unlawful
