I read your article on tax evasion and the H1-B program—both interesting and troubling. There is another twist to the immigrant labor force that I have often wondered about. How is Social Security going to monitor benefits paid to immigrants who migrate back to their native countries? In the U.S. a death certificate is automatically sent to Social Security when someone dies. What if the person dies is Albania—will Albania notify U.S. Social Security to stop sending checks? At current rates of accumulation, in 20 years the number of foreign born workers who have worked 10 years in the U.S. will be substantial. How is Social Security planning to handle this problem?
