According to a small piece in Time Magazine, illegal aliens pay an estimated $7 billion dollars in Social Security taxes-and guess what? They'll never see a dime of it. Medicare? $1.5 billion. Ten percent of last year's Social Security surplus was due to contributions made by illegals...no wonder our borders are so "porous". SHEEsh!

NB, do you have a link to the article, or at least the date and page it appeared on?
Interesting statistics, but I had no luck finding the article.
Thanks.

The numbers are in the April 18th edition of Time Mag. in the "Notebook" section. Looks like they pulled the stats From the New York Times. It's the only resource listed that seems plausible.

New York Times Carefully Selects Data, Concludes Illegal Aliens are a Boon to Social Security System


According to a front page report in The New York Times, illegal aliens working under bogus Social Security numbers contribute $7 billion a year to the trust fund. Illegal immigration is "the fastest way to shore up the long-term finances of Social Security," the Times quotes a New York University professor as saying.

Interesting to note that is true most aliens that work in the US do so with fake social security numbers so the money they pay stays in the system and never is claim.
