89% Of Older Americans Oppose Executive Action On Immigration, Says New Poll From The Senior Citizens League | The Senior Citizens League

"TSCL is concerned that the President's executive action would not only provide authorization to legally work in this country, but access to Social Security and Medicare benefits that, under current policy, could be based in part on earnings under fraudulent Social Security numbers," says TSCL Chairman, Ed Cates.
"With the Social Security Disability Insurance program facing insolvency by the end of 2016, and beneficiaries facing a 20 percent benefit cut, we are calling on Congress to end this policy that pays benefits based on document fraud," Cates adds. "TSCL's concern is not over taxes collected under valid Social Security numbers," Cates says. "Our concern is over the use of earnings under invalid or fraudulent Social Security numbers to determine benefits," he explains.

"Social Security and Medicare recipients are frustrated and concerned about White House immigration Executive Action that would give work authorization and access to Social Security numbers," says TSCL Chairman Ed Cates.
"Clearly, older Americans believe their own elected lawmakers are the more appropriate choice to make immigration changes," Cates adds. Expanding work authorization to undocumented immigrants would open Social Security to potentially millions who have worked in this country illegally. According to the non-partisan Congressional Research Service, a work-authorized Social Security number is all that individuals would need to later claim Social Security benefits - even years later. Citizenship would not be required. "Executive Action would potentially come with huge new long-term costs to both Social Security and Medicare," Cates says. TSCL surveys indicate that retirees are particularly outraged over current policies that allow Social Security to pay benefits determined by work under fraudulent and invalid Social Security numbers. In a survey conducted by TSCL earlier this year, seventy-eight percent favored legislation that would prohibit payment of Social Security benefits that are calculated on earnings from unauthorized work of illegal immigrants. The immigration reform bill passed by the Senate in 2013 contained such a provision. "White House Executive action, however, would bypass Congress and may put undocumented immigrants on the path to Social Security and Medicare benefits," Cates explains. Giving potentially millions of undocumented immigrants new access to work-authorized Social Security numbers would increase future liabilities for both programs. Seniors are wary because in recent years both Obama and Congress have said that Social Security and Medicare are unsustainable now. Benefits under both programs have become a target of proposals to reduce government spending. "Older Americans view paying benefits to immigrants based on work under invalid and fake Social Security numbers as rewarding people for breaking our laws, at the expense of others who are working under Social Security the legal way," notes Cates.
