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. 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. 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.
H.R. 925, the Identification Integrity Act, would make it harder for illegal aliens to gain government services and to otherwise profit from their illegal activity by prohibiting federal agencies from accepting foreign issued IDs (except for passports).
H.Con.Res. 50 was a concurrent resolution asking the President to refrain from transmitting the U.S.-Mexico totalization agreement to Congress. The U.S.-Mexico totalization agreement would reward certain illegal aliens from Mexico with Social Security benefits and potentially serve as an incentive for illegal immigration.
