WASHINGTON The Supreme Court appeared poised Wednesday to rule that undocumented immigrants who use phony Social Security numbers to get work should not be considered identity thieves, even if those numbers belong to real people.

I think it’s time to start piss testing these so-called “judges” for drugs.
has O gotten to them?
9 more names to remember when the revolution comes
Making up a phoney 10-digit number is not the same thing as stealing someone else’s identity. Still, I think illegals should be rounded up and ...
Just another “intent” thing.
Yeah, and the affected U.S. citizen or legal permanent resident is just "collateral damage." /sarc
what if they get a credit card in another name and run up a million in debt? do the victims have to pay up?
Kind of like divining the voter’s intent.
Especially all those new 20 million Democrat voters.
It’s like this nation is TRYING to kill itself.
Hmmm..how do we get Judge Roberts info? Oh I know, just ask an illegal.
They broke the law to come here, took a job to which they were not legally entitled, and then immediately commited a fraud.
And, they’re not all innocently making up a Social Security number. Quite a few have used stolen, actual Social Security numbers.
Do I sense a trend, here?
Anyone who has watched questioning before is just making guesses in trying to figure out how the SCOTUS will rule on a case from questioning.
It was a natural and valid question - does the law require any intent, and if it does, does the government need to provide evidence of it. Of course, such things would mean nothing if our car slammed into a police cruiser, we would be charged with the enhanced crime of assault on a police officer, no matter what our intent might be. The rules are different for government employees, vs you and me.
what the hell?
this violates the equal protection clause, 14th amendment.
so will every criminal meth=head, id fraud criminal have the right to get out now?
Sometimes, you just gotta' laugh...
Better hope they don’t retire and start drawing on “their” Social Security before you do.
Just wait until they default on a big loan and your social security number is tracked back to your credit rating. You'll be having lots of fun.
What concerns me and other FReepers is the overt fraternizing of the SCOTUS justices with Obama, given the several cases challenging his constitutional eligibility to be president that SCOTUS has already considered and the other cases likely coming its way.
Judges shouldn't be socializing with people who are parties or attorneys in cases coming before them; to do otherwise violates the canons of judicial ethics.
I don't think you would be to happy if, for example, you were suing someone and you spotted your opponent hobnobbing privately with the judge(s) assigned to the case. An honest, ethical judge should never even create the slightest suspicion that he is partial to one side in a case before him or which will likely come before him.
The trend you are sensing is the government trying to avoid the social security revolt that would ensue if the average American knew their money has been stolen by letting illegals put some of it back under false pretenses.
