    Amnestied Illegals May Receive Social Security As Early As 2017

    By Ryan Lovelace — March 9, 2015

    Illegal immigrants who take advantage of President Obama’s executive actions on immigration will soon collect another benefit: Social Security.

    Starting in 2017, the Social Security Administration expects that thousands of undocumented immigrants will begin collecting from the Old-Age, Survivor’s, and Disability Insurance (OASDI) program as a direct result of the president’s actions. In a letter to Republican senator Ron Johnson, chairman of the Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, the SSA’s chief actuary Stephen Goss indicated that an additional 16,000 people will begin collecting OASDI benefits come 2017, and that the number of beneficiaries would continue to increase for 40 years thereafter, topping out at 695,000 people. Goss’s projection may underestimate the number of potential beneficiaries, however, as it assumes that 50,000 fewer illegal immigrants will enter the country each year starting in 2016.

    What’s more, the SSA is proceeding as if nothing has changed in the wake of a federal judge’s injunction against Obama’s November 2014 executive actions. Goss tells NRO that he expects 58,000 new workers will be covered under the OASDI program later this year, although they will not be eligible to collect benefits immediately.

    “Based on the best advice and counsel we have gotten, we’re working on the assumption that these [executive actions] will persist,” Goss says. “Most indications we seem to get are that it’s likely that this will get back on track, with some delay.”

    Goss notes that a law, additional regulation, or another executive action by Obama or a future president could alter the way SSA calculates and administers OASDI benefits, but says that he does not expect the court’s order will ultimately succeed in changing anything.

    The Social Security Administration appears to be the latest Obama administration agency to ignore the federal judge’s injunction, moving forward as if it posed no legitimate threat to the president’s actions. U.S. Customs and Border Protection continues to circumvent the judge’s injunction, adhering to the relaxed border protection and enforcement standards laid out by Department of Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson in the wake of the executive actions. And, as the Justice Department noted last week, the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services began granting applications related to Obama’s executive amnesty well in advance of the date authorized by the president.

    Apparently, when Republicans in Congress caved to Obama and fully funded DHS — and the president’s executive actions — last month, they paved the way for illegal immigrants to begin collecting benefits from other agencies as well.

    Hmmm, sort of strange that this information didn't come out until after DHS was fully funded. Note I said strange, not surprising.

    Well, not apparently, of course it did. The whole Texas argument is based on unlawful action, outside the purview or consent of Congress. When Republicans funded the Department responsible for the unlawful action after the announcement by Obama, Congress had ample "notice" of the new Regulation, the King's Decree, the Czar's Order, and said "fine, here's your money" to do it with. An appropriation is not just funding, it's legal authorization.

    So, to me, Congress just blew a big hole in the argument for the Texas lawsuit. They'll now have to back-up and cling to States Rights and argue it differently. Hopefully, the federal judge won't hold Congressional action authorizing what the states are claiming was unlawful against the States. In fact, maybe the Judge can hold Congress itself in contempt of the US Constitution since the only authority Congress has with regards to immigration is to prohibit it, not grant it.

    All courtesy of a very sick President and an aging and decrepit Congress?

    Sure glad that I voted for none of then!

    Definitely the courtesy of a very sick President, but the aging and decrepit Congress, not sure about. I think our foes in Congress who aren't supporting our laws aren't behaving the way they are because of their age, I believe they're on the take with the drug cartels behind this travesty.
