American working class - screwed again

Somewhere along the line, sometime during my liftime - the American working class started paying welfare to all the world. Of course the money pipeline is hidden. But in the end $$ are flowing from our pockets to the pockets of non-Americans.

Group Warns of Social Security Raid by Illegals
Dave Eberhart, NewsMaxThursday, March 29, 2007

"A watchdog group warns that a huge pot of U.S. Social Security money, vulnerable to being tapped by illegal alien workers, is rapidly ballooning – representing yet another looming landmine for the beleaguered retirement system critical to millions of American seniors.
"The [Social Security Administration's] ‘Earnings Suspense File,' perhaps the best proxy for the eventual payout in benefits to today's illegal immigrants, has almost doubled over the past five years to $585 billion – largely a result of minimal workplace enforcement," Brad Phillips, a spokesperson for TREA Senior Citizens League, one of the nation's largest seniors groups, tells NewsMax.

Under a proposed "Totalization Agreement," millions of illegal Mexicans working in the U.S. today could claim benefits from the Social Security Trust Fund for work performed while in the U.S. illegally. They could do so through immigration amnesty – through which they could claim past Social Security payments for illegal work. "
