Skip to comments.'Illegal immigrants' cited in theft of 39 million Social Security numbers....
Posted on 09/11/2018 9:03:28 AM PDT by caww
The Immigration Reform Law Institute said that 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.
The group said that there is a thriving black market used by illegal immigrants to get Social Security numbers needed to get a job.
Their report draws attention to a move by former President Obama to stop sending so-called no match letters to employers notifying them that numbers used by employees on the wage forms do not match their identity.
The change followed the presidents decision to approve amnesty for some 700,000 younger immigrants let into the United States under his Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals. Some of those have been dubbed dreamers.
Several groups promoting immigration reform and limitations have shown that illegal immigrants compete with low income Americans for jobs.

This is the biggest DEEP STATE scam..after the Russia Hoax.
Outrageous! Build the wall!!!
“Their report draws attention to a move by former President Obama to stop sending so-called no match letters to employers notifying them that numbers used by employees on the wage forms do not match their identity.”
The Fraud’s handlers had a lot to hide.
THAT’s why that Russian spy team was here that he couldn’t send home fast enough, while Big Media distracted all who could read with fawning over the Natasha character.
And globalist estimate only 12 million illegal aliens in the country. That’s a whole lot of fraud the FBI apparently missed.
The illegals probably share our social security numbers with other illegals. “Hey Juan, this one works for me. I have four others that I can use.”

This isnt exactly the kind of story the IRS wants buzzing around at tax time. The IRS and Justice Department normally want 'scared straight' stories just before Tax Day. Ideally, when an indictment or conviction for tax evasion hits the news, it makes you think twice. Somehow, you think just a bit more about all those deductions, or if you really reported all your income, before you sign your return under penalties of perjury.
Instead, we have the top dog at the IRS, the IRS Commissioner himself, admitting that, well, theres a problem with illegal immigrants and taxes. In fact, the top IRS official this time wasnt talking about how the IRS wipes some hard drives or cant find emails. He wasnt even asking for a bigger budget to give bonuses to IRS employees.
This time, he was talking about illegal immigrants, and about the IRS turning a blind eye. Or maybe worse. The IRS actually wants illegal immigrants to illegally use Social Security numbers, he suggested. IRS Commissioner John Koskinen made the surprising statement in response to a question from Sen. Dan Coats, R-Ind., at a Senate Finance Committee meeting. The question was a touchy one. Gee, is the IRS collaborating with taxpayers who file tax returns using fraudulent information? It wasn't put exactly that way.
According to Senator Coats: "What we learned is that ... the IRS continues to process tax returns with false W-2 information and issue refunds as if they were routine tax returns, and say that's not really our job. We also learned the IRS ignores notifications from the Social Security Administration that a name does not match a Social Security number, and you use your own system to determine whether a number is valid."
Commissioner Koskinen was asked to explain this. He suggested that as long as the information is being used only to fraudulently obtain jobs, the IRS was OK with it. In fact, he said that the IRS actually had an interest in helping the illegal immigrants to crook these rules. In fairness, perhaps it's just the 'that's not my department' response that abounds in big government. Perhaps this just isn't the IRS's problem, but it sure seems odd to have any agency chief encouraging illegal immigrant theft of SSNs.
Charge them with fraud! ID theft!
Had my SS number used by 4 other people. Big mess to get them off. Guess what “type” names they were...
This is the biggest DEEP STATE scam..after the Russia Hoax.
It was all about harvesting the votes of illegals.
Raise the penalty for identify fraud and SSN fraud through the roof. Attack the illegals issue from all sides.
The truth that MUST be suppressed is that the rise of identity theft is the direct result of illegal immigrants. How do you think they make a living? By stealing the money and security of the people who actually WORK for a living.
democrats are responsible for this.
Americans doing this would be charged, convicted, and jailed. Illegal aliens get pass on their criminal behavior. And we wonder what is wrong with our country?
Mrs. Z how did you find out? I thought we couldnt know this!
...Americans doing this would be charged, convicted, and jailed. Illegal aliens get pass on their criminal behavior. And we wonder what is wrong with our country?...
Under USC section 1028(a)(7), a person is guilty of identity theft when he or she knowingly transfers, possesses, or uses, without lawful authority, a means of identification of another person with the intent to commit, or to aid or abet, or in connection with, any unlawful activity that constitutes a violation of Federal law, or that constitutes a felony under any applicable State or local law
Make the punishment fit the crime. Automatic 10 years in prison then automatic deportation to farthest point in their home country possible by C-130.
[[Guess what type names they were...]]
Irish? Scottish? British? English? Ok i give up
They’re only stealing the SSN’s that ordinary Americans won’t.
