January 1, Mass Amnesty: Social Security And Medicaid Theft from Seniors for Illegals



Former President Donald Trump has accused President Joe Biden of stealing Social Security and Medicaid benefits from American seniors. This accusation comes after Biden issued two executive amnesties for illegal aliens on Tuesday.

The first amnesty allows around 500,000 illegal aliens to obtain green cards if they have resided in the US for at least a decade and are married to an American citizen. An additional 50,000 migrant children will also be eligible for green cards through this amnesty. This means at least half a million illegal aliens will eventually be eligible for naturalized American citizenship.

The second amnesty provides work visas to hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens, including those enrolled in the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program who have graduated from American universities.

Trump campaign spokeswoman Karoline Leavitt said in a statement, “Biden’s mass amnesty plan will undoubtedly lead to a greater surge in migrant crime, cost taxpayers millions of dollars they cannot afford, overwhelm public services, and steal Social Security and Medicare benefits from American seniors to fund benefits for illegals — draining the programs Americans paid into their entire working lives.”

Jason Richwine at the Center for Immigration Studies explains that amnesty for illegal aliens would impose steep costs on the trust funds for two reasons: “Amnesty would require the government to bear the added cost of these recipients’ status as new beneficiaries without the added revenue that would normally come from new contributors,” and, “illegal immigrants tend to earn less and work fewer years in the U. S. than the average participant, meaning amnesty will provide them an above-average return on their contributions.”

Richwine’s research suggests that amnesty would transform illegal aliens into “net drains who receive more in benefits than they contribute in taxes,” thus straining Social Security and Medicaid. If 10 million illegal immigrants receive amnesty, the total cost to Social Security and Medicare would be around $1.3 trillion, or a one-time transfer of 6% of GDP. This indicates that the cost to Social Security and Medicare due to Biden’s amnesty could be as high as $71 billion.
