Illegial Alien Petition

Willy says give me your opinions - please comment on this below.

Willy wants to know how people feel. Below is a petition that I received in email. This petition addresses something that I believe is very much at the root of some of the problems in our country today even in the rural areas. Here is our government passing bills to take our hard earned money and basically give it to people who are here illegally. That is the term the scares me. The body that makes and upholds the laws of this land is supporting people that are breaking the law. This is what our country has come to. 10-4 Willy
The Petition begins:

My Mom was a homemaker and Dad worked all his life and paid into SS. Dad has passed away and now my mom can barely make ends meet. While the possible "illegal" alien in front of her at the grocery store buys the name brands, my mom goes for the generic brands and day old breads. She doesn't have out of state calling on her phone, because she can't afford it, and shops at the thrift shops and dollar stores while the "illegal" aliens go to Macy's, Gap, J.C. Penny, Banana Republic, etc. She considers having a pizza delivered once a week "eating out". She grew up during the depression, watched her husband go overseas to fight in WW II a year after their marriage, and then they went on to raise, feed and clothe 5 children, scrounging to pay tuition for parochial schools.

I'm sorry, but I can't see how the Senate can justify this slap in the face to born and bred, or naturalized citizens. It is already impossible to live on Social Security alone. If they give benefits to "illegal" aliens who have never contributed, where does that leave us that have paid into Social Security all our working lives?

The Senate voted this week to allow "illegal" aliens access to Social Security benefits. Attached is an opportunity to sign A petition that requires citizenship for eligibility to receive Social services.
