Social Security and illegal immigrants

September 16, 2010 § Leave a comment

Edward Schumacher-Matos on Social Security and illegals:

  • By 2007, the Social Security trust fund had received a net benefit of somewhere between $120 billion and $240 billion from unauthorized immigrants, representing 5.4% to 10.7% of the trust fund’s total assets ($2.24 trillion) that year.
  • Unauthorized immigrants paid a net contribution of $12 billion in 2007 alone.
  • Roughly two-thirds of unauthorized immigrant workers, or 5.6 million people, were paying into the system in 2007.
  • Few of these contributing unauthorized immigrants are likely to receive anything, ever.
