I read your article on tax
evasion and the H1-B program–both interesting and
troubling.  There is another twist to the
immigrant labor force that I have often wondered
about. How is Social Security going to monitor
benefits paid to immigrants who migrate back to their
native countries?  In the U.S. a death
certificate is automatically sent to Social Security
when someone dies.  What if the person dies is
Albania–will Albania notify U.S. Social Security to
stop sending checks?  At current rates of
accumulation, in 20 years the number of foreign born
workers who have worked 10 years in the U.S. will be
substantial. How is Social Security planning to handle
this problem?
