A memo sent from the Congressional Research Service to the Senate Judiciary Committee indicates that illegal immigrants will be able to tap into America’s Social Security system and receive payments, according to the terms of President Obama’s amnesty plan.
The memo also says illegals, in some cases, would also be given credit for time they’ve been working in the United States illegally.
The Daily Caller first obtained a copy of the memo and reported its contents.
It read, in part: “Under the November 20, 2014, policy memorandum, foreign nationals who receive deferred action status may be eligible for work authorization. As a result, a foreign national who receives deferred action status may be able to have all of his or her Social Security-covered earnings count toward qualifying for a Social Security benefit (all earnings from authorized and unauthorized work).”
The benefits that these illegal immigrants will be able to receive include retirement, disability and survivor, news site reported.
The Republican aide who provided the memo to The Daily Caller said “the executive amnesty onion has just started being peeled,” and that the nation’s Social Security system faces a deep difficulty.
“These benefits programs are in dire trouble,” the aide reportedly said. “They need to be preserved for legal immigrants and American citizens first and foremost.”
The White House announced Obama’s executive amnesty action in November 2014, but then, officials said illegals would not be eligible for Social Security. A month later, the White House released another statement, saying some in fact could be eligible, the news outlet reported.
