1.3 Million Illegals Commit ID Fraud; None Prosecuted

2018 March 20
by bc3b

If there are only 11 million illegal aliens living in the US (the figure the government and the media always cites) and 40% of the illegals are children, that leaves 6.6 million adult illegal aliens. If 1.3 million adult illegals have committed identity fraud, that’s 20% of all adult illegals.

This seems to negate much of what amnesty shills like Nancy Pelosi, Jeb Bush, Miss Lindsey and Jeff Flake claim – that these are honest people in the US only to have a better life for their families and have committed no crime other than being in the US illegally.

Once again we see the government granting special privileges to illegal aliens as none have been turned over for prosecution. People like Martha Stewart (not one of my favorites) have gone to prison for doing less.

(CNSNews.com) – The Internal Revenue Service in 2011 through 2016 documented more than 1.3 million cases of identity theft perpetrated by illegal aliens whom the IRS had given Individual Taxpayer Identification Numbers (ITIN), which are only given to people who are ineligible to work in the United States or receive Social Security Numbers, according to information published by the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration(TIGTA).

However, in response to inquiries from CNSNews.com, the IRS could not say if it had referred even one of these cases for criminal prosecution.

TIGTA, which is the inspector general responsible for overseeing the IRS, discovered another approximately 1.2 million cases in 2017 in which an illegal alien working in the United States had filed a tax return reporting wages that had been earned using a Social Security Number that belonged to someone else or was fabricated.

Yet the IRS also could not say whether it referred any of these cases for criminal prosecution.

(To see the questions CNSNews.com asked the IRS, TIGTA and the Justice Department about these cases and the agencies’ responses to those questions click here.)

 

‘Shall Be Guilty of a Felony’

Using a stolen or fake Social Security Number is a felony.

“The Social Security Act,” TIGTA has noted, “provides that whoever, with the intent to deceive, falsely represents a number to be his or her SSN when, in fact, that number was not assigned to that person, shall be guilty of a felony and subject to a fine, imprisonment, or both. This includes using a false SSN to obtain employment.”

    In keeping with this post:

    When our government at every level no longer protects and serves us…it is worse than useless.

    Now that the state of CA is not only turning a blind eye to illegals, not only showering them with welfare benefits and college aid, but indeed has started the process of appointing them to commissions …. well, from there it is only a short step to putting them in charge of citizens.

    That’s outrageous.

    Jim, Kalifornia is run as an Oligarchy. The Elites of the Oligarchy don’t give a damn about anything except maintaining their grip on POWER. And ILLEGAL aliens are the means to maintain that power.

    The Suppressives of our “State” gladly prostrate themselves before the Oligarchs, urging them to exert greater control of us, the Great Unwashed…whom they hold in utter disdain.

    More proof that Kalifornia is run by Mexicans. We talk about Britain being beyond saving. Kalifornia is as much a basket case as Britain.

    The only solution – let Kalifornia become an independent country and let New California become the new 50th state.

    Non-citizens being caught for voter fraud or identity fraud should be immediately deported.

    I jokingly referred to the 11 million illegal alien figure, but it’s more likely 20+ million.

    Using the phony 11-million figure, Pew estimates that nearly 1/4 of the nation’s illegal aliens are in California. I would be rather surprised if Kalifornia didn’t have at least 5 million illegals.

    Bc3b, Kalifornia is blessed with amazing natural beauty, mostly splendid weather, tremendous natural resources and some of the finest natural harbors in the world…all of which made it what it USED TO BE.

    Even the Oligarchs in Sacramento, Silicon Valley and Hollywood can’t destroy it overnight…but they ARE trying.

    JR – Slight correction:

    Oregon State tries. Alabama succeeds.

    Amusing blue-on-blue kerfuffle.
    Reminds me of how Cindy Sheehan was saintly … till she ran for Nancy Pelosi’s seat in Congress.

    http://donsurber.blogspot.com/2018/03/gay-mafia-attacks-its-own.html
    Cynthia Nixon co-starred on Sex in the City. She came out of the closet in 2004, but she has discovered as many people do that the Gay Mafia is fierce.

    First, she said being gay is a choice.

    Hahaha.

    Democrat Christine Quinn, who was the first gay city council president in New York, called Nixon “an unqualified lesbian.”

    Apparently, you need to take some courses and pass a written test.

    Well, since many colleges and universities have LGBTQ programs, I suppose you do.

    15 – Struck me as some serious rose colored glasses.

    “A classic Trump tactic is a first move in the opposite direction of his ultimate move. He bombed Syria before he issued an order to stop arming “moderate rebels,” who were a pipeline to ISIS. That’s a sea change in American policy. The US has been arming Islamic rebels (always moderate, of course) for various Middle Eastern objectives since Jimmy Carter sent weapons to Afghanistan’s mujahideen.”
    —-
    Still funding them, in fact it’s now a line item in the def budget, above and beyond our own costs, and it’s pushed others like turkey and their Islamist front groups to get way more involved than anyone wants.

    “Trump also negotiated a little-noticed ceasefire with Vladimir Putin in part of Syria, and changed the US goal from deposing Assad to defeating ISIS. Trump’s moves recognized that much of Syria was under control of the Russia-Assad-Iran-Hezbollah axis, and nothing the US could do short of total war was going to change that”
    —-
    Except of course ceasing all land east of the river (25% of syria + oil fields), and bombing anyone trying to take it back from our former-ISIS proxies, or clear it of the remaining ISIS that the US has admittedly (want to talk about overlooked news) halted operations against in it’s claimed areas. Why they’re leaving two small pockets of isis around to regroup I leave as an exercise to the reader to figure out, even iraq has volunteered to clear the one just over their own border, from which they must defend against weekly raids, but been told no from the US.
    The idea that this ‘buffer’ is some how ‘stopping’ iran is a bad joke.

    ” he’s buying off the MIIC with huge spending increases”

    Well, he’s certainly trying to buy them off, not only with our money, but other peoples money (foreign arm sales), for the moment, they seem satisfied – enough.

    ” He will decimate the best-laid plans, including those of China (whose total debt is unknown, but huge) and Russia, particularly their costly New Silk Road collaboration.”

    Last I checked there was more progress on the new silk road initiative, and transaction settlements in non-us dollars, than there is on “The Wall”, one is a real thing, slowly moving forward, one is quickly becoming a punch-line.

    “Undoubtedly, enlightened elements within the complex recognize that the US, with its $21 trillion and climbing debt, can no longer play unipolar global cop, lucrative as that role has been for the complex. However, it serves no purpose to announce what is in effect a retreat to this more sustainable position.”

    I don’t see signs they in fact do recognize it, Trump seems too, some of his supporters certainly see it, those he surrounds himself with though at this point, not so much it seems to me.

    19, curious how these “insiders” leak exclusively to WaPo or NYT. Never to Fox or Breitbart.
    Should I be suspicious?

    21 – Not pushing back on this disaster of a bill is going to hurt him, seems content to give up without even a fight or even verbal harassment. SAD.

    25 – Nope.

    Potus tweet:
    “Got $1.6 Billion to start Wall on Southern Border, rest will be forthcoming.”

    You could call it spin, but looks like a lie to me.

    https://www.cnsnews.com/news/article/susan-jones/omnibus-specifically-prevents-trumps-promised-wall-money-be-spent-fencing

    “(CNSNews.com) – The $1.3 trillion omnibus spending bill supported by President Trump, House Speaker Paul Ryan, and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell provides almost $1.6 billion for “fencing” and “levees” on the Southwest Border.

    But the bill is very specific on how the money must be spent in the next six months, ruling out any concrete barriers such as the prototypes Trump visited in California on March 13.
