Immigration Bill may raid the Social Security Trust Fund

Sen. David Vitter, R-La., an opponent of the immigration bill, argued that the legislation relies on $211 billion of Social Security revenue over the next 10 years and that without that money the legislation would cause a $10 billion deficit and that was against the budget rules.
