That can definitely swing an election.

I'm having trouble believing wall jumpers can successfully steal Social Security numbers on their own. I know it's black market, but when Obama stops no-match letters, what else could he have done?

Oh there is definitely organised crime involved, that's for sure.

Not too clear on the whole procedure though, because I'm not American.

I happen to know it happens, and happens a lot. It is organized, and the people who file said tax returns get a 10 - 20% cut off the top - that's how it works.

They can document the hell out of themselves now.

This could only be done by organized illegal immigration. Everyone of those 39 million could be used to rout out the illegal immigration industry.

They get a nice tax return when they file before "John Doe" --> and John gets a shock when he finally files and the IRS says - "we already sent you your return!"
Oldest scam in the book...about time folks got wise to it.

But MUH 11-12 million that we've been told for the past 15 years.

And these are just the ones stealing SSNs. What about the ones getting paid under the table without that?

Probably the most accurate counting of illegal immigrants in the US. 12% of the US population, excluding their children and those not using stolen social security numbers.

Holy shit, you're right. It never occurred to me that stolen social security numbers could be used as a resource to track illegal aliens, and even be used as a resource to calculate the (minimum) number of illegal aliens we have in America.

That is brilliant.

Simple, if there are 2 instances of an SSI number and one is across the country from the one that is originally used and still being used than that person should be hired and an ICE team sent to the employer and let the employer know they are arresting the person for ID theft and the employer is safe since they did try to validate but the employee will be prosecuted their belongings confiscated to pay fines and then deported and put on the black list for immigration. This would speed up the process of catching ID thieves and also when questioned would be required to give the ID of the person that set them up with the SSI number that way taking down the infrastructure and making everyone look for a new asshole to buy their ID's from which might take a while. If they do it this way the confiscated money can be put into the SS account and also all loans can be cancelled and all bills voided for the original person that owned the number legally. This can bring down huge amount of criminals besides the illegals and bring in a ton of confiscated cash to the people whose number is stolen and the government. If the person has been in the country for years then the money put into SS will be given to the legal holder of the number as a bonus and fuck the illegal over the wall you go and if your from overseas just give them a rubber raft and an oar and a bottle of water and a goodbye wave because who gives a fuck if they die just get out now.

...And the IRS won't do squat because they make money from it.
