How Barack Obama’s DACA Encouraged Identity Theft by Illegal Aliens

Most undocumented immigrants try to obtain fake or stolen Social Security numbers and the federal gov't punished such crime — but that ended in 2012

As the dilemma of what to do about the illegal alien participants in former President Barack Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program has dominated the immigration debate for more than a year, a new investigation has revealed the lengths to which the previous chief executive facilitated the program.

They did so, among other things, by ignoring widespread identity theft by illegal aliens and keeping Americans in the dark about being cut off from their Social Security benefits. The findings show how DACA is not the act of benevolence that is portrayed in the media, and has actually caused great harm to American citizens. It simply has to end.

In addition to being a blatant violation of the Constitution and our immigration laws, DACA can now be seen as the product of an administration that refused to enforce the law for political reasons, and at the expense of honest citizens.

Further, Ting reveals how the DHS omission was supplemented by the Social Security Administration (SSA), which halted a program started in the 1970s from communicating to working people when there is a mismatch between the information submitted in employer wage reports and what is in the agency’s database.

The notices, which had formerly been posted to millions of people across the country and appear to be mandatory under SSA regulations, are important because when a submitted name/SSN combination isn’t lining up in SSA’s system, the citizen or legal resident’s number appears illegitimate, which can lead to their Social Security benefits being frozen.

This can happen, for instance, if there’s a...Read More HERE
