    group of House Democrats wrote the Social Security Administration (SSA) demanding the retraction of an order that reinstated Employer Correction Request Notices, also known as “no-match” letters. The letters inform employers that information reported on an employee’s W-2 form does not match SSA’s records. While the letters are intended to give employers a chance to clear up typos in an employee’s name or Social Security number, they also expose instances of illegal aliens using fake IDs or stolen identities to get a job.

    SSA started send the letters in 1993 but did not establish regulatory procedures requiring employers to follow up until 2007. Those Bush Administration procedures required employers to fire employees who had mismatches that could not be cleared up. Business groups immediately sued to overturn the rule and persuaded a judge to block it. The Bush Administration terminated no-match letters in 2007 and rescinded the regulation in 2009. In 2011, the Obama Administration restarted no-match letters without the termination requirement but discontinued them in 2012.

    The Trump Administration issued an order reinstating the letters in March of this year. The new no-match program is similar to Obama's but more expansive. The former only sent letters to employers who had 10 or more employees with discrepancies. Trump's policy is to inform every employer about every discrepancy in the SSA database.
    I imagine Obama terminated them in 2012 because they were too effective.

    Corporate Counsel interviewed one immigration attorney who warned that the letters “are coming out in very large volumes…I’ve had a lot of [client-] employers very nervous because of what this may lead to.” He said SSA can share no-match information with Homeland Security Investigations and turn the matter into an enforcement issue. “This is a clear warning to employers that if they aren’t maintaining their I-9s, they should be.” He said ICE asks for no-match letters in the context of an I-9 audit and uses them to establish that employers had constructive knowledge of employing illegal aliens.

    46 House Democrats, led by Rep. Jesús García (D-Ill.), wrote acting SSA Commissioner Nancy Berryhill alleging that no-match letters are being revived as part of the Administration's crackdown on illegal immigration. Their real purpose, Garcia said, is to out employers that hire illegal aliens. He suggested the effort will divert “resources away from frontline workers whose primary mission is administering benefits" and should be terminated.
    the latino caucus is upset because employers who hire their beloved illegal aliens might get caught with their pants down. I would like a list of the other 45 house democrats who are opposing this action.

    I’m kind of curious... Is there such a thing as a Honkey, Cracker, Whitey caucus? I guess it’s all baked into the white privilege.

    This is still an ass-backward method of enforcement that would more easily be addressed with mandatory e-verify.
    Olde-style, states' rights conservative. Ask if this concept confuses you.

    I agree.

    It seems many employers don't use E-verify. Maybe any employer who doesn't use e-verify could be made an example of. The problem with that is the employer being provided with forged papers.

    The letters might be the best solution for now until the invaders are slowed down.

    Use any, all and every means possible to extract the illegals and send them back.
    It's not how old you are, it's how you got here.
    It's been a long road and not all of it was paved.
