Social Security Totalization Agreement Reform Act of 2007
H.R. 190, Social Security for Americans Only Act of 2007, would prohibit an individual who is not a U.S. citizen or national, for purposes of Social Security benefits, from being credited for income earned while he/she was not a citizen or national; requires any Social Security totalization agreement to take that prohibition into account; applies that prohibition only to totalization agreements taking effect after enactment.
H.Res. 22 would express the House's disapproval of the U.S-Mexico Social Security totalization agreement signed June 29, 2004.
H.Res. 18 would express the House's disapproval of the U.S.-Mexico Social Security totalization agreement, which, if allowed to go into effect, would allow certain illegal aliens from Mexico to collect Social Security benefits.
S. 2117, the ENFORCE Act, would: 1) end the automatic granting of citizenship to the U.S.-born children of illegal aliens (an estimated 250,000 per year); 2) increase border controls by enlisting retired law officers in border control efforts; 3) increase interior enforcement by mandating federal officials respond to state and local officials who detain illegal aliens; and 4) prevent theft and abuse of social security numbers and individual taxpayer ID numbers, both of which are used by illegal aliens to obtain jobs fraudulently.
S. 2075, the Development, Relief, and Education for Alien Minors (DREAM) Act, would reward illegal aliens under the age of 21, who have been physically present in the country for five years and are in 7th grade or above, with amnesty. An estimated 500,000 to 600,000 illegal aliens would qualify for this amnesty. It would also reward illegal aliens under the age of 21, who have been physically present in the country for five years and are in 7th grade or above, with in-state tuition rates at colleges and universities.
S. 2061, the Border Security and Interior Enforcement Improvement Act, would reduce rewards for illegal aliens by increasing penalties for document fraud, false claims of citizenship, and misuse of Social Security numbers and cards. It would increase border security by requiring construction of a border fence along the U.S.-Mexico border, providing for additional Border Patrol agents, and mandating use of the entry-exit system at all ports of entry.
H.R. 4302 would prohibit issuance of residential mortgages to illegal aliens, removing a huge incentive for illegal immigration, and remove the discretion of the Secretary of Homeland Security with respect to expedited removal. Expanding usage of expedited removal will ensure that illegal aliens do not get away with their immigration offense and compound it by remaining in America.
H.R. 3938, the Enforcement First Immigration Reform Act, would: 1) reduce rewards for illegal immigration by prohibiting Social Security for illegal aliens, 2) reduce chain migration by eliminating the Family 4th Preference category which allots 65,000 visas each year to the siblings of adult U.S.
H.R. 1438, the No Social Security for Illegal Immigrants Act, would prohibit work performed while an alien is unlawfully present in this country to count toward qualifying for Social Security benefits.
