A White House mass pardon for identity thieves

From OneNewsNow.com, by Michelle Malkin – Guest Columnist, 11/19/14 – 

President Obama is poised to show his “compassion” this week by granting work cards to an estimated five million illegal immigrants through an imperial executive order. As for the vast, untold number of law-abiding citizens whose identities have been stolen by foreign law-breakers, two words: Tough luck.

Social Security card fraudsters have made out like bandits thanks to the White House. Their victims are about to get kicked in the teeth again.

Two years ago, when Obama launched his first administrative amnesty known as “DACA” (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals), the White House gave aid and comfort to illegal alien applicants who were concerned that their previous felony identity theft and fraud crimes would preclude them from the new non-deportation benefits. The Department of Homeland (In)security made clear that illegal workers who wanted coveted employment documents would not have to disclose to the feds whether they used stolen Social Security numbers.

Center for Immigration Studies analyst Jon Feere reported at the time that ethnic lobbyists and open-borders businesses lobbied the Obama administration hard “to keep American victims of ID theft in the dark while shielding unscrupulous businesses from enforcement.” As an Obama official told The New York Times, DHS employees are “not interested in using this as a way to identify one-off cases where some individual may have violated some federal law in an employment relationship.”

Translation: See no identity theft. Hear no identity theft. Speak no identity theft.

A high-profile immigration attorney crowed: “Good news for deferred action applicants: If you used a false Social Security card, you need not reveal the number on your deferred action application forms. The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services has clarified that when the forms ask for an applicant’s Social Security number, it refers to Social Security numbers issued to the applicant. If you used a friend’s number, a made-up number or a stolen number, you should answer N/A for ‘not applicable’ where it asks for the number.”

Since then, more than 500,000 DACA applications have been approved with abysmal oversight, little public disclosure and total absolution for identity rip-off artists. The latest planned administrative amnesty will dwarf that ongoing fiasco.

Victimless crimes? Tell that to those who have been harmed by the estimated 75 percent of working-age illegal aliens who have fraudulently used Social Security cards to obtain employment. Tell it to victims in border states with the highest percentages of illegal aliens, where job-related identity theft is rampant.

Tell it to hardworking Americans like Wisconsinite Robert Guenterberg, whose Social Security number was exploited by illegal aliens for years to buy homes and cars — while the IRS refused to tell the victims about the fraud to protect the thieves’ privacy rights.

Tell it to U.S. Air Force veteran Marcos Miranda, whose name and Social Security card were filched by an illegal alien to work at a pork slaughterhouse. He was even thrown in jail for unpaid traffic tickets racked up by his identity thief. “Even though I am Hispanic, I am against illegal immigration,” Miranda told the Associated Press. “Even though a lot of them come to work, there are always bad apples. (Identity theft) has really made my perspective … negative about immigration.”

And what about the children? As the Center for Immigration Studies points out: “Children are prime targets. In Arizona, it is estimated that over one million children are victims of identity theft. In Utah, 1,626 companies were found to be paying wages to the SSNs of children on public assistance under the age of 13. These individuals suffer very real and very serious consequences in their lives.”

They include Americans like Jay Di Napoli of Colorado Springs, who has fought for years to clear his name and financial records after his late father — an illegal alien who abandoned his American wife and children — “took my original Social Security card and birth certificate when I was 2 years old.” The criminal “began selling these documents to undocumented workers coming across our border with Mexico. In fact, he sold my Social Security number to illegals over 28 times before his death in 2009, and my number continues to be sold to this day. What’s more, my late father’s actions have caused extremely grave damage in virtually every facet of my life.”

The amnesty brigade loves to extol the virtues of those who are “doing the work no Americans will do.” But when it comes to punishing illegal workers who have raided the lives of innocent Americans to feloniously secure jobs, mortgages and medical care, mum’s the word.

Obama’s new “American Dream” is the stuff of hellish nightmares: Reward the law-breakers. Punish the law-abiders. And sell out our national identity in pursuit of cheap votes and cheap labor. R.I.P.

    Such has been the goal of the globalists, for decades. The ultimate “end game” is to drown USA in to a third world culture , impotent on the international scene devoid of industry and to become a servant culture.

    This way the middle class is destroyed and there is no opposition to the transition to a one world government. No single nation would be strong enough – financially, militarily, or with sufficient critical resources and manufacturing – to buck the globalists agenda.

    ” RED Ronnie ” and his handler, Bush the Elder, started this with a sneaky “amnesty” in 1986. Reagan, despite all the “tough , conservative talk ” was a useful puppet for the globalists. I never voted for him.

    Nice article of Ronnies “gift” –

    Reagan’s Gift: Free Medical Care for Illegal Aliens

    Written by Gary North on November 19, 2014

    Ronald Reagan signed into law the bill that requires local hospitals to provide free emergency medical services to illegal aliens. This was in 1986: the Emer­gency Med­ical Treat­ment and Active Labor Act (EMTALA). Here is a summary.

    The law was designed to pro­vide patients with access to emer­gency med­ical care and to pre­vent hos­pi­tals from “dump­ing” unsta­ble patients that could not afford to pay for their care. “Under the law, “any patient arriv­ing at an Emer­gency Depart­ment (ED) in a hos­pi­tal that par­tic­i­pates in the Medicare pro­gram must be given an ini­tial screen­ing, and if found to be in need of emer­gency treat­ment (or in active labor), must be treated until sta­ble.” . . .

    Although the law refers specif­i­cally to hos­pi­tals with an ED, the guide­lines from the fed­eral gov­ern­ment have applied EMTALA require­ments to all facil­i­ties that par­tic­i­pate in the Medicare pro­gram and offer emer­gency ser­vices.

    The irony here is that the inevitable results of this law are cited over and over by conservatives who call for the deportation of illegal immigrants. Sometimes they mention free education in tax-funded schools, but it is free emergency medical care that they think justifies deportation.

    There are two ways to solve this. First, pass a law repealing this law. Second, deport all illegal immigrants. I favor the first. Let me explain why.

    COSTS AND BENEFITS

    In response to my article on the impossibility, economically speaking, for the federal government to deport five million families who are inside the United States, I got what is by far the most common reaction to my analysis. The critic pointed out that illegal aliens use the welfare system to get benefits.

    The person did not mention the fact that the federal government would have to spend a minimum of $100 billion to deport the targeted five million families that are supposedly going to be protected from deportation by Obama’s executive order. That does not count the additional five million families, or possibly 10 million families, that are not expected to be covered by this Executive Order.

    It also does not factor in the obvious fact of economics: the rising cost of implementing any policy by the federal government. As the easy targets are picked off, the remaining targets become far more expensive to deport. This is an economic phenomenon known as the law of diminishing marginal returns. It costs something in the range of $23,000 to deport one family today. We can be sure that after the first million or so families being deported, this cost will get much higher. It will easily go to $200 billion. It could go much higher. The last 250,000 will be astronomically expensive to deport.
