Federal Agencies Employ Thousands of Illegal Immigrants

The battle over illegal immigration policy continuesâ?¦ but apparently is not an issue to federal agencies.

According to the Washington Times, government agencies â??are among the biggest employers of the half-million persons in the U.S. illegally using â??non-workâ?? Social Security numbers [numbers previously issued by the Social Security Administration to legal aliens who were not authorized to work in the United States.]â?

These numbers are different from the â??no-matchâ? numbers. Rather than using the Social Security numbers of American citizens, these illegal government employees are using government-issued numbers specifically stating that the card holder is unauthorized to work in the United States.

Judicial Watch filed a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit against the Social Security Administration, seeking documents identifying the top 100 corporations in the United States receiving the highest number of â??no matchâ? letters. The lawsuit coincidentally followed six Immigrations and Customs enforcement raids of large employers of illegal immigrants around the United States.

And herein lies the real issue: while taxpayer dollars are being used to implement ICE raids, the government entities should be working with ICE are, rather, engaging in a tug-of-war, using the very illegal immigrant labor they should be fighting.

While the nation is locked in a battle to end the illegal immigration crisis, it is a travesty that our government agencies are failing in their most basic duty: to follow the rule of law.
