NewsWithViews.comPresident G.W. Bush has already expressed a strong desire to grant amnesty to hundreds of thousands of illegal Mexican aliens. Now, he is apparently working on a plan to grant Social Security benefits to tens of thousands of Mexicans who do not even live in the United States.According to the December 19th Washington Post, "Pushed by the Mexican government, the Bush administration is working on a Social Security accord that would put tens of thousands of Mexicans onto the Social Security roster and send hundreds of millions of dollars in benefits south of the border."Press reports quote Mexican foreign ministry official Arturo Sanikhan as saying that the proposed Social Security accord is intended "to deepen [Mexico's] relationship with the United States and improve the day-to-day lives of Mexicans."It appears someone needs to remind Mr. Bush that he is President of the United States, not Mexico. Then again, do national boundaries even matter to this administration? Perhaps not.Secretary of State Colin Powell is already on record as saying that the border between the U.S. and Mexico is not a border between two nations, but "a wall between two rooms of the same house." It is a wall the Bush administration is obviously attempting to remove, by the way.Granting criminals (illegal aliens) legal protection and sending Social Security benefits to citizens of a foreign nation is the antithesis of the principles of independence and patriotism. Instead, it smacks of internationalism and makes the United States more vulnerable to and dependent upon foreign interests.It would be nice if people who call themselves conservatives would rise up in opposition to such a preposterous plan, but they won't. They will continue to support this administration even if it means the loss of America's independence, freedom, and constitutional government.So, while millions of Americans are working two or three jobs to make ends meet, know that President Bush will soon be taking our hard-earned tax dollars and sending it to Mexico in an attempt to buy votes and dismantle our southern border.
