Lara Logan says illegal migrants are already getting Social Security numbers, US is giving them out at the border


While attending an election security forum in Arizona Saturday, investigative journalist Lara Logan leveled a massive allegation against the federal government regarding illegal immigrants and Social Security.

On Saturday in Tempe, Arizona for America First and We the People AZ Alliance hosted the Arizona Election Security Forum with The America Project. With panelists that included state senators, state representatives and Republican gubernatorial hopeful Kari Lake, Logan took her opportunity to speak to assert sources within U.S. Customs and Border Protection have been assigning Social Security numbers to border crossers entering the country illegally.

“You know you have to remember they don’t actually believe in citizenship,” Logan stated of open border proponents. “And now when people come across the border illegally — I have this confirmed from border patrol agents who are actually, physically doing this — they get given a Social Security number. They get assigned a Social Security number when they cross. I’m not sure how many of you are aware of that”

The panelists appeared visibly shocked at the journalist’s assertion which she continued suggesting was part of a larger scheme to influence the delegate counts in states like California.

“And if you really want to know where the cheating starts, it’s long before you get to the polls, right? I mean, think about it, it starts with the census. It starts with counting illegal immigrants in the census,” she said.

Logan’s allegations followed earlier reporting of President Joe Biden’s administration seeking to use Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) to issue government IDs to illegals deemed “provisionally released noncitizens.”

Rep. Lance Gooden (R-TX) issued a letter to ICE Acting Director Tae Johnson Thursday where he stated, “Unless this program has rigorous guardrails to ensure adequate vetting, credentialing, and collection of biometrics, Secure Docket Cards will do nothing to secure our border, and the American people should be very concerned our entire national security framework is in jeopardy.”

“When I demanded President Biden stop allowing illegal immigrants to use arrest warrants as ID to fly,” he stated of the situation, “I was hoping he’d stop flying them across the country. Instead, he’s decided to give them government IDs and risk the safety of our communities, the integrity of our elections, and the stability of our social safety net programs.”

He was joined by Republican Reps. John R. Carter (TX), Byron Donalds (FL), Troy Nehls (TX) and Thomas P. Tiffany (WI) on the letter. An additional letter was sent to Johnson Friday signed by 16 Republicans that further alleged “the issuance of ID cards raises the possibility that illegal aliens will use these identification cards to improperly access benefits such as housing, healthcare, and transportation.”

The concerns of potential outcomes posed by Republican members of Congress were in line with the conclusions drawn from Logan’s reported investigation. However, they did not go as far as to suggest this was already taking place.

The journalist went on to contend, “There’s one thing that I’ve learned as I’ve been investigating this…they love euphemisms because it’s all about democracy and if there’s any form of voter security, that’s voter suppression and racism and white supremacy.”

“And if it’s the other side, you know, anything we can do to get more people out to vote. But, actually, when you talk to the canvassers they’ll tell you that when they go into the low income areas…that’s where they find the most fraud,” she concluded.
