Dear Rep. McClintock,
On behalf of our 2.1 million members across the country, AMAC Action strongly supports H.R. 6678, the Consequences for Social Security Fraud Act. Our membership thanks you for ensuring criminal aliens are removable from the United States for social security and other identification document fraud. AMAC Action has been a strong supporter of tougher immigration standards, a streamlined process to remove bad actors from the country, protecting seniors, and eliminating fraud in Social Security. This bill addresses all of these important priorities for AMAC Action, and we are proud to stand together with you in strong support.
Criminal aliens who victimize seniors through social security fraud are currently afforded a lengthy process with respect to conviction and removal. H.R. 6678 streamlines this process to ensure that criminal aliens can be quickly removed from the country for their fraudulent actions. This bill also allows authorities to use an alien’s own admission that they committed fraud as grounds for inadmissibility and removability. This improvement in the law guards against far left prosecutors who game the system with workarounds to keep criminal aliens in the country and cuts through potentially years of litigation and proceedings. Ultimately, your legislation requires judges to enforce the laws on the books with respect to criminal aliens.
According to a RealClearInvestigations report, in just 2017 there were “1.2 million cases in which illegal aliens used Social Security numbers that belonged to someone else or were fabricated.” Your legislation will hold criminal aliens accountable for breaking the law and victimizing seniors.
