(CNSNews.com) - How many illegal aliens have already received Social Security numbers under President Obama's "unlawful and unconstitutional" amnesty, two U.S. senators want to know.
Sens. Ben Sasse (R-Neb.) and Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.) sent a letter on Thursday to Social Security Administration Commissioner Carolyn Colvin, seeking "current information" about the number of individuals who have been granted Social Security Numbers, or applied for them, under President Obama's various deferred action programs, beginning with DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) in June 2012.
Sessions, who chairs an immigration subcommittee, is co-sponsoring Sasse's newly introduced bill, titled "Amnesty Bonuses Elimination Act." The bill would prohibit the issuance of Social Security Numbers to individuals receiving deferred deportation under President Obama's executive actions.
“The American people have a right to know the full costs of President Obama's unlawful executive amnesty,” Sasse said in a March 13 news release announcing his bill.
