Re: illegal immigrants and stolen social security numbers

I took some time out of my day yesterday to take an illegal immigrant to a job interview.  He is 21 and from El Salvador, but still in High School.  He has a Social Security card that says, "valid for work only with DHS authorization" and a number.  It is a legitimate card, issued to illegal immigrants that have been allowed to work in this country, however temporarily.  I took him to Antoine's restaurant in the French Quarter and he got a job as a dishwasher paying $10/hour.  He will no doubt have deductions from his paycheck like all on-the-books employees.  Somehow I doubt he will ever collect on any of the programs those deductions go towards funding.

I just don't see this as one of the big problems facing our nation at the moment.  There are bigger issues that need attention than our neighbors seeking in to wash the dishes for $10/ hour.

That was awfully nice of you to take time out to help that young man.  But I have a question.  The SSN with that restriction is issued to aliens who are legally in the country.  You said he was illegal.  How did he get that card?

All I'm saying is let's not pretend undocumented immigrants are voting in the same proportion as citizens. There may be some data that suggests they are voting illegally and that is a problem I will agree, but it isn't swinging elections. There is just not enough undocumented immigrants as a % of the population for that to happen right now. Also, in California, the hot bed of all this illegally voting due to the issuance of drivers licenses, the driver's license you are issued if you cannot prove US citizenship is called an ab60. It cannot be used for ID at any federal facility and the option to register to vote is disabled at the DMV (Box is greyed out) and online. So it would seem these people may have a few more hoops to jump through to get into a polling place than just their ab60 license.

You're are underestimating the voting issue big time - look at the election results. Trump won a large state like Michigan by 12,000 votes.

Don't tell me that 12,000,000 illegal immigrants can not sway an election.

The Democrats message to their traditional working class strongholds: Michigan, Ohio, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania - we don't care about you.
Trump won them by the narrowest of margins.

The American people repudiated the Obama agenda precisely because the Democratic Party is no longer the party of the working class.
Middle America has been hollowed out and left behind by Obama and the Democratic Party.

This election was a referendum on 2 things:  Jobs and Illegal immigration

Trump spoke directly to the working class about the 2 key issues they cared about: Bringing back jobs and Build the Wall.

You don't see it because you don't live in California, where the middle class is fleeing because crime is up and the schools have been ruined.
You should move to Bakersfield or Fresno, etc - you'll sing a different tune with the highest taxes in the country and the worst infrastructure and schools.
