This is insane.
Nearly 40 million Social Security numbers have been stolen and used by illegal aliens, according to a report from the Immigration Reform Law Institute.
The Institute says from 2012 to 2016 there were “39 million instances where names and Social Security numbers on W-2 tax forms did not match the corresponding Social Security records.”
There is a “thriving black market” they use to obtain Social Security numbers in order to get a job.
The report highlights a practice used by Obama administration that stopped sending “no match” letters to employers notifying them that the numbers their employees are using on their wage forms do not match their identity.
This came after he approved “amnesty” for roughly 700,000 younger illegals through the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.
“The Social Security numbers of young children are especially sought by illegal aliens, as this theft is likely to go undetected for years. As children reach late teenage years and apply for credit for cars, student loans, and other needs, they may find that their credit has been compromised with mortgages, credit cards and criminal records attached to their identities,” the institute argues.
“This investigation shines a light on the depth of America’s problems as a result of allowing illegal aliens into the country,” Dale L. Wilcox, executive director and general counsel of IRLI, said. “It also debunks the idea that being in the country illegally is a victimless crime. Millions of Americans, in many cases children, are having their identities stolen to enable even more criminal activity. Illegal aliens should not reap Social Security benefits that result from the commission of identity theft.”
Hopefully Trump will do something about this, starting with cleaning up the master death file to get dead people off of the roles receiving federal welfare benefits.
