Dear Editor:
On what basis does Sebastian conclude that there is no "fiscal drain" from illegal immigration? His optimism about the impact of immigration on Social Security is misplaced. First, he neglects to consider that not all immigration is created equal. Immigration by poorly skilled, uneducated workers who tend to have many more children than the natives creates a double whammy: large numbers of children who will need schooling, and health care at precisely the time our older population is in need of medical care. Since social security payments are based largely on income while working, it is going to take more unskilled workers to support one white collar retiree than it will skilled workers. Then, there's the issue of who is going to pay for the care of the immigrants and their children? It's a real Ponzi scheme. Heavily populated countries such as China and Mexico are facing more of a problem with aging populations than the US, particularly because they do not have social security networks in place.
