[Ed. – Best of all, Obama was in on it?]
Almost half of illegal aliens shielded from deportation under an Obama-created temporary amnesty program have previously worked in the United States despite not holding valid Social Security numbers authorizing them to work.
A study by the University of California, San Diego, reveals that nearly 44 percent of the almost 800,000 illegal aliens who have been protected under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program previously worked in the U.S. without valid Social Security numbers.
The study, according to Center for Immigration Studies Researcher Ronald Mortensen, sheds light on the potential identity theft rate of DACA recipients.
“However, these individuals were unable to legally obtain Social Security numbers for their pre-DACA employment, which means that they used fraudulently obtained Social Security numbers that all-too-often belong to American citizens, including American children,” Mortensen writes. He continues:
The use of unlawfully obtained Social Security numbers by individuals eligible for DACA status is so pervasive that the Obama administration instructed applicants not to disclose their illegally obtained numbers.
