Social Security sends what are called no match letters to an employer when they find a worker is using a SS# that does not belong to them or something along those lines. The company generally has 30 to 90 days to get with the employee and back to Social Security to clear things up. Many companies simply roll the dice and do nothing because they know they hire illegal aliens and it may take months or even years before ICE comes to audit them.
A company that hires an illegal and pays under the table without any papers is harder to catch and ICE has to have someone report the crime before the crime can be investigated. This happens alot more than actual audits tipped of by Social Security.
The government should seize all business and personal assets fo any company that knowingly hires illegal aliens and that would be a stronger message than some minor fine.

The audits "don't make any sense before a legalization program," said Daniel Costa, an immigration policy analyst at the Economic Policy Institute, a Washington, D.C., think tank. "You're leaving the whole thing up to an employer's eyesight and subjective judgment, that's the failure of the law.

"...before a legalization program? They truly think that we are going to give them full amnesty!

If you looked at employment verification from an American citizen POV, it's a no bainer. The only time it get complicated is if you are pro illegal alien...ducking and dodging our laws in order to get what you want from the system illgally.

it is not a bad word, it describes what they make themselves to be when they laugh as they trespass our borders INTENTIONALLY. They are criminals invading our country without proper documentation. Mexico doesn't put up with this kind of invasion and intrusion from countries around them, WHY SHOULD WE? and from what I understand Mexico treats their ILLEGAL aliens NOT TOO GOOD.

I do not believe very much you say. Construction has bee crap for 4 year's. Your employer is an illegal alien too. People are wising up about hiring illegals and paying them under the table. The time is almost over for you. Even if you work I don't believe it's much. I know roofers and other illegal construction workers that are having a hell of time. Many have left the Country. So Juan. Please don't BS us.

Me and my family are not illegal criminals! So we'll never have to worry about, also only an illegal would want the word dropped in hopes of somehow legitimizing their being here as criminals !nice use of quotations too.

P.S., and don't put you or your family in circumstances where they would justifiably be called names unpleasant to you. AT WHAT POINT DO YOU ACCEPT RESPONSIBILITY FOR YOUR OWN ACTIONS? ACCEPT RESPONSIBILITY FOR PUTTING YOU AND YOUR CHILDREN IN THESE CIRCUMSTANCES...NOT US, WE DIDN'T INVITE YOU HERE!!!

Actually I make $14 an hour wiring new homes in the Houston Area. The housing industry has not slowed down at all here. Hundreds of new homes going up on Pearland Parkway, near the University of Houston Clear Lake Campus. Check it out. I been doing this on a 12 man crew for over 15 years, my boss has tried to hire citizens, they want too much pay and long breaks. Many miss work on Fridays and Mondays.

Ronnie...juan is writer of pure fiction. Don't believe "anything" he says. His boss the supposed master electrician doesn't show up in any license database in TX. His "informal" company would have to be registered to legally perform work that must be inspected and approved and isn't. He is a nothing more than a stupid troll in to stir up trouble and spout the la ratza party line. Remember 15 years and he still has to have work checked and approved by his boss. If he really was doing what he says he has he'd be behind bars after all the reports that have been made with all the evidence that remains on topix of his illegal activities. He doesn't fear anything because he's just a stupid troll and isn't what he says he is. Ignore the idiot.$14 an hour after all this time? lmfao...

I hope everyone has a successful 2013 and are more tolerant of the poor undocumented who come to this country for a better life.
