Bush`s Hispandering Hit On Social Security

My eight-week-old

son`s
Social Security card recently arrived in the
mail. On the back, there`s a stern warning:


“Improper use of this card or number by anyone is
punishable by fine, imprisonment or both.”

Welcome to the world of government
theft and

selective enforcement
, my boy.

While innocent babes who have yet
to earn a penny are threatened with jail time for
misusing Social Security cards, the Bush administration
appears set this week to turn the ailing government
pension program into an international relief fund for
illegal
alien workers who used

counterfeit Social
Security
cards and

stolen numbers
to secure

illegal jobs
.

Unlike the bedtime stories I tell
at night, I am not making this up.

This

belated gift
to the

open-borders lobby
and Mexican President Vicente Fox
is part of a larger amnesty plan that has been

in the works
since before the

Sept. 11 terrorist attacks
.

So, why
exactly are we rewarding a country that has been

obstinately opposed
to the

War on Terror?
Go ask

Mr. Brilliant
, Karl Rove.

This I do
know: It couldn`t have come at a worse time from
either a fiscal or

national security
standpoint.

According to Rep. Clay Shaw (R-Fla.),
chairman of House Ways and Means subcommittee on Social
Security, benefits paid to retirees will

exceed revenues in just 15 years
. The pay-as-you-go
system could go belly up as early as 2030.

These projections don`t take into
account the economic impact of the Bush proposal, which
would allow untold millions of illegal aliens from
Mexico to collect full cash benefits for themselves and
their families from their home country—without having to
work the required number of years that law-abiding
American citizens must work to be eligible for payouts.

Reporter

Joel Mowbray
, who first

exposed
this treachery a year ago, noted that this
raw deal may well cost overburdened U.S. taxpayers


$345 billion
over the next 20 years.

Probably
much more. As we know from experience, Social Security
projections are notoriously off the mark.

The bureaucrats call this scheme
“totalization.”
Try total prostration. The proposed
agreement is nothing more than a transfer of wealth from
those who play by the rules to those who willingly and
knowingly mock our own

immigration
and

tax laws
.

What are we doing promising
lifetime Social Security paychecks to day laborers in
Juarez when we can`t even guarantee those benefits to
workers here at home?

Unbelievably, the White House is
trying to convince us to embrace this global ripoff
because it “rewards work.”

No—it rewards criminal behavior.

The plan will siphon off the
hard-earned tax dollars of American workers who may
never see a dime of their confiscated earnings and fork
it over to foreigners guilty of at least four acts of
federal law-breaking: crossing the

border illegally
, working

illegally
, engaging in tax fraud, and using

bogus documents.

Giving money to scam artists will
simply result in more fraud—not only by Mexican
agricultural workers, but also by Middle Easterners such
as

Youssef Hmimssa,
who provided fake Social Security
numbers and fraudulent drivers` licenses to members of
an accused terrorist cell in Detroit.

 “If
you have the right connection, you can get anything
,”

he testified before the Senate last fall.

The door
is now open for all illegal aliens to collect retirement
benefits using bogus Social Security cards.

What`s
next: survivors` benefits for the families of the

nineteen Sept. 11 hijackers?
