If you ever wonder why we have a crisis at our border look no further than the Democratic Party. It’s not just their disposition on Border Security and how they seem to be against it every step of the way.
A big part of our problem is how they have made us look weak on border security. Families can’t be separated although many of the supposed families were only out together to gain access. And Dems like presidential candidate Kirsten Gillibrand who want to give illegals benefits.
“First, we need comprehensive immigration reform,” The New York Senator claimed while campaigning in Davenport, Iowa. “If you are in this country now you must have the right to pay into Social Security, to pay your taxes, to pay into the local school system and to have a pathway to citizenship. That must happen.”
Watch The Clip Below.
While campaigning for President in Iowa, @gillibrandny said she wants to expand social security to cover illegal immigrants.
“Gillibrand’s comments are striking given her past as an immigration hawk. In 2009, the New York senator voted to increase funding for ICE and once said she believed English should be the official language of the United States.
Under current U.S. law, only legal immigrants are entitled to Social Security benefits after paying into the program for the requisite amount of time.”
We can not afford to give everyone Social Security. especially people who are not paying into the system.
“No doubt, Social Security faces funding challenges, but not immediately and not bankruptcy. Benefits are paid through payroll taxes collected from current workers and their employers, and the program currently operates with a surplus of about $2.8 trillion.
Yet with a rising number of retirees and a drop in the birthrate, that’s changing. The latest projection has the combined Social Security trust funds that pay retirement and disability benefits running out of cash reserves by 2034.
But that wouldn’t leave Social Security bankrupt and unable to pay any benefits. Even if Congress does nothing to shore up the system by 2034, Social Security will be able to pay out 79 percent of promised benefits until 2090.”
But still, we should not be giving benefits to anyone who is not a legal citizen of the United States. This is just encouraging people to enter our country illegally.
