Immigration and Social Security

From OpinionJournal:

Everyone knows by now that two major items on President Bush's second-term agenda are Social Security and immigration reform. Less known is how closely related the issues are.

With so much attention focused on illegal immigration, it's easy to forget that most foreigners come here legally. In addition to replenishing our workforce and spurring economic growth, these hard-working individuals help fund benefits for current and future retirees. And according to a new research paper by the National Foundation for American Policy, immigration will continue to affect Social Security regardless of whether Mr. Bush succeeds in modernizing the system with private accounts.
