A new report found that 39 million Social Security numbers have been stolen and used by illegal aliens to secure employment under the Obama administration in only four years, according to agency records.
Obama is a felon. This is a crime, not that anyone will care.
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.
If only that was the only crime they committed.
WHY IT HAPPENED
It happened because former President Obama stopped the sending of “no-match” letters to employers notifying them the employee numbers do not match their identity.
He made the decision after he gave amnesty to about 700,000 younger illegal aliens.
PRESS RELEASE: 39 MILLION: IRLI Investigation Reveals Massive Identity Fraud by Illegal Aliens

This author has been a victim of identity fraud. Someone has all my information and used my Social Security number to apply for a $15,000 loan. I can’t say who did it at this point, but the fact that Obama administration decided it was okay for illegal aliens to commit identity fraud is infuriating.
IT WASN’T ONLY SOCIAL SECURITY, OBAMA’S IRS ALLOWED IDENTITY FRAUD
In 2012, the IRS posted a notice on its website to tell tax preparers it will accept tax returns with an “ITIN/SSN mismatch.” The IRS’ online e-file system was previously designed to reject computer-filed tax returns that showed an ITIN/Social Security number discrepancy.
That was changed to make it easier for undocumented workers to file tax returns. According to the agency notice, “The IRS has changed the programming to ensure that these returns will not be stopped.”
The U.S. Treasury Department’s Inspector General for Tax Administration agreed. His agency released an audit showing undocumented workers received more than $4.2 billion annually in Additional Child Tax Credits at that time.
They were allowed to also receive back monies for the time they collected illegally and didn’t file a return.
The ITIN (individual taxpayer identification number), because of an IRS loophole, allows illegal immigrants to use that number to claim Additional Child Tax Credits and some are collecting for children living in foreign countries.
IRS should send these returns to ICE and let them pick them up and send them home.
