Black Market Discovered in Social Security Numbers - Unexpectedly!
[WashingtonExaminer] 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.
This was my perception, in the D.C.area construction market, ten years ago. I said, the employers are not always to blame. Not always.
Their report draws attention to a move by former President Barack Obama to stop sending so-called "no match" letters to employers notifying them that numbers used by employees on the wage forms do not match their identity.
The change followed the president's decision to approve amnesty for some 700,000 younger immigrants let into the U.S. under his Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals. Some of those have been dubbed "dreamers."
