Why? The robot can't vote, or receive social support, doesn't pay taxes, ...

The only possible way I can see this being a problem has nothing to do with the robot(s) and everything to do with the gov't. Make the robots citizens, let them vote, and since there is no such thing as a truly autonomous robot, the robot's owners get to have it vote however they want. Plus, of course, you have a situation where it is legal for a person to own a "citizen".
