A very large percentage of the poor from south of the border have no identity papers and never had which is one of the reasons they cannot immigrate here legally. They first have to obtain documentation from their own government, which is often difficult and expensive for a poor person born in a mountain shack.<quoted text>I disagree with you DDD. I do believe that most people that enter this Country do have proof of identity. It may not be documentation from this Country but they sure do have some from theres. As to the use of false social security numbers for work those to my knowledge use their own names with a bad number. They don't go around using other peoples names. Not to mention that many of those here for years may already have sent paperwork into the Government.
As to the patriot act and nsa like I said I don't like them but I wouldn't like anything happening to my family or yours for that matter because we didn't keep track of what others are saying or about to do.
There is also a large group that do have papers from their own government including criminal files and warrants for their arrest. There is an entire criminal culture dedicated to false IDs and our government does not have the resources or the will to verify the ID of 20 million people who have generations of practice at hiding their true ID.
Many people have died and many more will defending you freedoms and to give up even a small part of that freedom out of fear does not honor them.
