Well, here’s a shocker. The Washington Times is reporting that there may be yet another reason this administration has refused to enforce our immigration laws, especially our laws that fine employers of illegal aliens. After all, you don’t want to enforce the laws if you are one of the worst offenders, now would you?
If President Bush is serious about getting tough on U.S. employers who hire illegal aliens, he can start with his own administration, which employs thousands of unauthorized workers, says the top Republican on the House immigration subcommittee.

A 2006 audit showed federal, state and local governments are among the biggest employers of the half-million persons in the U.S. illegally using “non-work” Social Security numbers — numbers issued legally, but with specific instructions that the holders are not authorized to work in the U.S.“Let’s clean up our own house, let’s especially clean up the federal employment of all those working for the federal government,” said Rep. Steve King, Iowa Republican and ranking member of the House Judiciary Committee’s immigration subcommittee.

The Social Security Administration used to, but no longer does, issue non-work numbers to legal aliens who were not authorized to work but needed a number to obtain a federal or state benefit or service. Still, hundreds of thousands of those immigrants used the numbers to get a job.

WHAT???

I thought we couldn’t find these people. I thought they were hidden in the ’shadows’.

Someone cannot get a government job without showing proof of citizenship. I know, I know, what about the gardeners, they look like.....No! Even they have to show citizenship.

These people aren't exactly illegal immigrants.. The are legal residents with non work numbers i.e they are allowed to be here but can't work.. Big difference.

I'm sorry, but you are not factual at all. The U.S. Govt. does NOT hire illegal aliens.

To: justanotherjoe, coming from a family of mostly all federal employees, he was probably asked to resign, that's how they work it. To answer the original question, that's not true.They can not hire an illegal. Just because you are saying it, does not make it true.

? Where exactly are you getting "this" information? Major corporations in the US, greedy for high profits and cheap labor may be exploiting these illegals but I doubt "any" illegals are actually working for the U.S. Government.

I hope they past amnesty to all the illegal immigrants just to PISS you ignorant people off.

The Government can't hire illegals cause they check papers.

You are incorrect. The US Government hires NO illegal immigrants. The people who do are breaking the law themselves and deserve to be punished. The US economy is not set up to give up benefits like health care, educational benefits and judicial benefits to illegals for free. They are a drain on our economy and you are right, the taxpayer is the one paying for their wages. Deport ALL illegal immigrants from any country and punish the employers who chose to use them. There is absolutely no other cost effective way to give back wasted taxpayer dollars in the future.


Razor Jim
Your statement is false, the US government does not employ illegals


Lori K
Yes, that is exactly what that means. The government needs to act more quickly in verifying felonious use of social security numbers.

It means the government needs to have audit of all it's employee's. Those who do not believe that the USA is the largest employers of illegals needs to watch Lou Dobbs

They are the largest entity hiring illegals in the USA.
Over 11,000 of them.

Watch the cnn news, or go to their sight and look it up.
