It’s a good thing this Senate bill will ultimately die a quick death in the House (hopefully).
The Senate voted yesterday to allow illegal aliens to collect Social Security benefits based on past illegal employment — even if the job was obtained through forged or stolen documents. “There was a felony they were committing, and now they can’t be prosecuted. That sounds like amnesty to me,” said Sen. John Ensign, the Nevada Republican who offered the amendment yesterday to strip out those provisions of the immigration reform bill.
Kudos to Ensign, but the stupidity of his colleagues is breathtaking.
