Calls Needed in Support of Amendments Denying Social Security and In-state Tuition to Illegal Aliens

Your calls are needed immediately to generate support for two amendments expected to come to the floor this week to deny in-state tuition and Social Security benefits to illegal aliens.

Please call your representative right away and urge a yes vote on the King Amendment to deny in-state tuition to illegal aliens and the Hayworth Amendment to prevent Social Security benefits from being paid to illegal aliens from Mexico.

Find your representative's phone number here or call the Capitol switchboard (202) 225-3121 and ask to be connected.

AMENDMENT DETAILS:

The following amendments are expected to be offered to the Department of Labor, Health and Human Services, Education and Related Agencies Agencies Appropriations Act for Fiscal Year 2006. The House is scheduled to begin consideration of this bill today (Thursday, June 23).

  • King Amendment to Deny In-State Tuition to Illegal Aliens - Rep. Steve King (R-IA) is planning to offer an amendment that would prohibit any Labor/HHS funds from being used in contravention of federal law prohibiting states from offering illegal aliens taxpayer-funded in-state tuition, unless the state also provides Americans from other states the same benefit.

  • Hayworth Amendment to Deny Social Security to Illegal Aliens - Rep. J.D. Hayworth (R-AZ) is planning to offer an amendment that would effectively prevent the currently pending U.S./Mexico Social Security totalization agreement from going into effect. This agreement, which is signed by both countries but has not yet been presented to Congress for disapproval, threatens to drain the U.S. Social Security system by allowing Mexicans who have worked in America (both legally and illegally) to qualify for U.S. Social Security retirement benefits. Specifically, this amendment prohibits any funds appropriated by the bill from being used to administer benefits that would only be payable due to the totalization agreement with Mexico. The potential for fraud and the looming amnesty threat could mean millions of illegal aliens from Mexico could qualify for Social Security under this agreement.

SAMPLE MESSAGE:

"I'm calling to urge the representative to vote in favor of the King Amendment to the Labor/HHS appropriations bill to deny in-state tuition to illegal aliens. I'm also calling to ask the representative to vote in favor of the Hayworth Amendment to prevent Social Security benefits from being paid to illegal aliens from Mexico."
