I hear that people my age might not be able to count on social security being there when I’m eligible.
I’ve paid double into the system my entire life.
If my money isn’t there, well… I hesitate to finish this paragraph.
Democratic New York Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, a 2020 hopeful, said social security and a pathway to citizenship should be rights for immigrants “in the country now” Tuesday at a campaign event in Iowa.
“I have a lot of ideas,” Gillibrand said. “First, we need comprehensive immigration reform. If you are in this country now, you must have the right to pay into social security, to pay your taxes, to pay into the local school system, and to have a pathway to citizenship.”
Gillibrand has been vocal in her thoughts on immigration.
“Immigration is not a security issue. It is an economic and a humanitarian and a family issue,” she said during a town hall with MSNBC on Monday.
She also added there is “no such thing as an illegal human.”
