Support Congressman Gallegly's HR709 to save Social Security from unfair "Totalization"
1. Totalization agreement gives Social Security
A Totalization Agreement was signed by the U.S.
Commissioner of Social Security and the Director General of the Mexican Social
Security Institute on June 29, 2004. It commits the U.S. to making payments to
illegal Mexican workers after they have returned to Mexico upon their supposed
"retirement". This agreement can go into effect very rapidly, so the situation
2. Congressman Elton
Gallegly working to save Social Security
Gallegly introduced HR 709 to prevent Social Security raids and protect the
integrity of the Social Security system through a Totalization agreement with
Mexico. He is a rare leader in Washington, willing to earn the enmity of the
political establishment of both parties to defend the national sovereignty
interests of the United States and the social security benefits of those
Americans who have worked a lifetime to earn them.
3. Congress must stop this taxpayer funded giveaway to
Gallegly's bill would impact any new bill that
became effective after January 1, 2007, including the above agreement with
Mexico. It simply sets fair ground rules to consider in any future proposals or
negotiations BEFORE consideration by the Congress.
4. US-Mexican Totalization agreement will
destroy U.S. Social Security
The cost to taxpayers could be
as high as $525 million in the first five years and as much as $650 million per
year thereafter. This will cause a chain reaction of higher taxes to workers and
potentially, cause dramatically reduced benefits to new U.S. retirees. These
retirees who worked long and hard for these social security benefits would,
under the agreement signed by the U.S. and Mexico (but not yet formally proposed
to or approved by Congress) see their retirement funds snatched away and sent
over the U.S.-Mexico border.
should Mexican illegals get a better deal than U.S.
Gallegly's bill, the Total Overhaul of Totalization
Agreements Law (TOTAL), would require that future new Totalization Agreements
(including the one signed but not yet submitted) prohibit Social Security
payments to foreign nationals unless they, like American citizens, legally work
for 40 quarters in the U.S. (10 years) not 18 months.
6. HR709 Stops taxpayer funded
incentives to illegal workers
Getting a better deal than
legal Mexican citizens in Mexico and American citizens in America get working in
their own country, it is very obvious that an unfair and one-sided Totalization
Agreement would simply serve as a magnet to lure an ever increasing number of
illegals to the United States in the next 40 years, as many as 110 million by
Proposes Fair Deal for legal foreign workers
taxes paid by foreign nationals and their employers would be transferred to
their home countries under the Gallegly legislation. Similarly, the taxes paid
by American citizens in foreign countries would be transferred into the U.S.
Social Security system under his bill.
8. No U.S. Taxpayer subsidy for other Mexico Social
Foreign workers will still receive retirement
credit for the taxes they pay--which is only fair--but the U.S. taxpayer will
not be forced to subsidize another country's social security system, nor would
people who are here illegally get social security benefits.
Mexican Cross Border Raid on U.S. Social
Talking Points by Secure
1. Mexican President acts today same as
bandit Pancho Villa in 1916
Mexican President Filipe
Calderone's attempt to get the U.S. to make social security payments for Mexican
illegal immigrants after as little as 18 months is the equivilant of a modern
day cross border raid patterned after Mexican bandit Pancho Villa in 1916. In
both cases, someone came over the border from Mexico illegally, robbed
Americans, and then returned to Mexico and "safe haven".
2. U.S.-Mexico Agreement already signed giving SS
Benefits to illegals
A "Totalization Agreement" was signed by
the U.S. Commissioner of Social Security and the Director General of the Mexican
Social Security Institute on June 29, 2004. It commits the U.S. to making
payments to illegal Mexican workers after they have returned to Mexico upon
their supposed "retirement".
Congress can still DISAPPROVE this taxpayer giveaway to
In order for the Totalization agreement to become
law, under section 233(e)(2) of the Social Security Act, the proposal does NOT
have to be approved by the Congress; however either chamber may vote to
DISAPPROVE such proposal within 60 days of its submission by the President. The
President has not at this date submitted the proposal already signed between the
4. This "Cross
Border Raid" will bankrupt U.S. Social Security
With as many
as 20 million illegal Mexican workers in the United States, and upwards of 100
million more expected in the next 10 years, the proposed "Totalization"
agreement to pay social security benefits to illegal Mexican workers will cost
billions of dollars and easily bankrupt the Social Security Fund. If the
Totalization Agreement is allowed to become law, there is a certainty that
social security benefits to American workers will be stopped at some point in
the future, or severely reduced, because of a lack of funding to pay all
5. Cross Border Raid
will make Mexican President very popular
Pancho Villa was and remains a popular figure in Mexico, because he ?stood up to
the Colossus of the North.? The current President of Mexico, Filipe Calderone,
will no doubt also increase his popularity if his modern day cross border raid ?
this "totalization" agreement -- becomes law.
6. Where are U.S. Leaders to stop those helping destroy
Some of America's most famous leaders got
their start in the U.S.-Mexico war that resulted from the national mobilization
to stop the evil Pancho Villa, such as Generals Jack Pershing (the leader of our
World War 1 army in Europe), George Patton, Omar Badley. Such leaders are needed
today to stop the modern day cross border raid.
7. Illegals will be vested in 18 months, not 10 years
like US workers
Mexicans must work over 30 years to get
vested in the Mexican Social Security System but as little as 18 months in the
U.S. and then they can return home with a lifetime of Social Security Benefits
paid for by U.S. taxpayers. Americans work 10 years or more for any
8. Pancho Villa was a
thug. Mexican President acting like a thug also
Rather than a
hero, Mexican bandit Pancho Villa murdered his first man at age 16, and was a
thief, murderer and thug who stole from and killed Americans before running back
over the Mexican border to enjoy his loot.
9. The Raid can succeed without any vote by
Once the "Totalization" agreement is submitted to
Congress, an affirmative vote will not be required to make it become law; its
supporters (who control both chambers of Congress) simply have to bottle it up
in committee without hearings or a vote, and both Senate and House would then
never even vote or debate the proposal before it became law "without
10. Arguments by U.S.
supporters of Mexican Border Raid
Thus far the chief
arguments of the proponents of giveaways such as this are the following: (a)
these illegals are hardworking, (b) they have children, (c) we must be
compassionate, (d) anyone who opposes their social welfare spending scheme is
anti-immigrant, insensitive, racist, a member of the radical right, or some or
all of these, and (e) we cannot enforce the law because the law is unrealistic
anyway, so we should just ignore the law about immigration, and reward those
here illegally with these new social security benefits.
Secure America Alliance --
SAA Stands against the Obama Administration War on Seniors.
Secure America Alliance Sponsored the Freedom Leadership Conference on 4/24/2013
Attorney Gil Davis Blasts “Obama War on Seniors” at 4/24 Freedom Leadership Conference
Gil Davis, who became very popular with conservatives across America because of his work for Paula Corbin Jones versus President Bill Clinton, will be the keynote speaker at the Freedom Leadership Conference on Wednesday evening, April 24 in Northern Virginia.
Gil Davis spoke out against the “War on Seniors” in behalf
of this month’s sponsor, Secure America Alliance. Ronald Wilcox, SAA Executive Director, reminds conservatives that Gil Davis’ largely uncompensated work for Paula Jones, won him a rare 9 to 0 victory before
the Supreme Court and directly led to the impeachment (ie. indictment) of President Clinton and his disbarment by his peers of the Arkansas Bar
Association for lying under oath during the battle.
Examples of “the war on seniors”
(which was addressed by Secure
America Alliance speakers – Gil Davis plus panelists –
are listed below:)
*the terrible effect of Obamacare on seniors;
*cuts in Medicaid and medicare by Barack Obama and his allies;
*how over spending causes inflation which hurts seniors living on fixed income, more than any other segment of society;
*how federal policy causes banks to give near zero interest rates to punish savings, hurting seniors more than anyone else;
*inheritance “death tax” which especially targets senior citizens;
*how government over-spending and policies towards savings, private
companies and especially banks, devastate the value of real estate which
seniors have spent their entire time investing in and paying off their
*the “totalization” agreement signed with Mexico to give illegal
aliens faster vesting rights than Americans in the U.S. Social Security
even after they broke US law and then returned to Mexico – threatening
to bankrupt the already underfunded Social Security Trust Fund and leave
senior citizens with no retirement funds.
*other policies which hurt senior citizens such as the future “death
panels” predicted by Sarah Palin and conservatives during the ObamaCare
In addition to Gil Davis we had several other speakers
participating in a panel discussion on Barack Obama’s War on seniors at
the April 24 conference sponsored by Secure America Alliance. The
Secure America Alliance invited several different organizations
active on these topics to join in the panel discussion.
