Steyn on the Great Social Security Giveaway

In his new column ("Not Just Amnesty - Amnesty Plus Cash") the inimitable Mark Steyn describes the plan to allow illegal aliens to collect Social Security based on their illegal employment and then sardonically remarks:

"Well, I think that's the kind of moderate compromise 'comprehensive immigration reform' package that all Americans can support, don't you?"

He goes on to question whether in America it's now illegal to enforce the law. Then, in a rebuttal to Senator McCain's insistence that the plan is not "amnesty" ("Call it a banana if you want to"), Steyn writes:

"Having skimmed my Webster's, I can't seem to find a word that does cover what the Senate is proposing, it having never previously occurred to any other society in the course of human history. Whether or not, as Sen. McCain says, we should call it a singular banana, it's certainly plural bananas."
