40 million cases of identity theft by illegal immigrants


Washington ExaminerNearly 40 million Social Security numbers have been stolen and used by illegal immigrants and others to get work, according to agency records obtained by an immigration reform group.

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.

That's a lot of identity theft, and every single illegal immigrant who wants to work for a living has to commit it. The presence of illegal immigrants is not harmless, even when they are working for a living and not committing violent crimes.
