Undocumented Workers Paying into Social Security

With all of the controversy over undocumented workers 'taking over our jobs' and 'draining our economy', there is an interesting article in the April 5, 2005 edition of the New York Times about the billions of dollars that undocumented workers pay into SS that they will never benefit from.

In all likelihood, many of the biggest critics are also those that are benefiting the most from this unclaimed resource that the government has accumulated from deductions taken out of the minimum wage salaries of poor undocumented workers.

What's next, are we going to set up a vigilante patrol of the Mexican/US border?

These vigilantes are scary. But, of course if they commit a crime in the Arizona desert, they will be "alleged" to have committed that crime and will be innocent until proven guilty in a court.

If a group of corn farmers hiking in that same desert, looking for jobs, because their farms are no longer viable with all the cheep US corn imported to Mexico, are found dehydrated, exhausted, even dead, they are imedialtely declared to be "illegal aliens."
