E-verify would fill 'gaping hole,' says FAIR

Social Security officeAn immigration enforcement advocacy organization is appalled at the revelation that nearly 40 million Social Security numbers were stolen by illegal aliens during the Obama years.

The Immigration Reform Law Institute filed a Freedom of Information lawsuit that found that there were "39 million instances where names and Social Security numbers on W-2 tax forms did not match the corresponding Social Security Records" from 2012 to 2016.

Dave Ray is a spokesman for the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR), which is the sister organization of the Immigration Reform Law Institute. He says the Obama administration stopped sending employers what are known as no-match letters.

"It just says [basically] Hey, this guy Dave Ray who's working for you - his name doesn't match his Social Security number; you might have a problem there - and left it up to the employer to find out," Ray explains. "The Obama administration, right about the time it moved forward with an amnesty for the DACA recipients, did away with the no-match letter." 

That has created a major headache for unsuspecting law-abiding American citizens.

"So now we have Americans whose Social Security numbers are unwittingly being used by illegal aliens, and they're now being summoned by IRS for income that they didn't report, that they actually never received because it was received by illegal aliens," the FAIR spokesman reports.

Ray says mandatory e-verify is needed.

"President Trump has called for that," he continues. "It's always been kind of a gaping hole in our efforts to try to prevent illegal aliens from taking American jobs by using stolen Social Security numbers."

E-verify is a huge disincentive to keep illegals from attempting to get an American job in the first place.
