Senate Votes to Give Benefits to Illegal Aliens

Absolutely astounding. See how your Senator(s) voted here. This was the vote on S. 3985 amendment to S. 2611, the Comprehensive Immigration Reform Act of 2006. The vote tabled the amendment which would have prevented a legal immigrant from collecting Social Security benefits that accrued from employment while in an illegal status.

You shouldn't be able to collect Social Security benefits based on illegal employment. "Illegal alien" and "benefits" shouldn't even appear in the same sentence much less in our legislation. Charles Hurt over at The Washington Times has a good take on this nonsense.
