This is the system that the Swift Corp. was defeating by having its criminal-alien employees use stolen identities.
Criminal Number 18F
According to what is being reported in the media this morning, only about 5% of the Swift workers detained are being held on criminal charges, id theft and/or illegal re-entry.
They didn't defeat it. Each quarter in each state the employers must send a list of names ssns along with amounts paid on a wage list to the state unemployment insurance department.
Colorado used the new database to check against the database that SUTA had. They found 67 infants working - and one ssn was reported by 47 employers in the same quarter.
There were several large businesses that seemed to have a higher than average number of discrepancies.
These businesses were contacted and asked to review their records. Guess Swift was one that didn't take it seriously.
Trouble is Swift could have applied for H2B worker program and filled their positions. Greeley has always been a hotbed of illegal aliens. When I picked up the newspaper and saw the headlines "Rage and prayers in Greeley" I just about lost my breakfast.
Ways around the system -
Other ways around the system -
illegal aliens are starting their own businesses, applying for a ITIN with IRS and using that ITIN meant only for paying federal income tax to forge a new identity. They are issued drivers licenses, liability insurance, DBAs etc. It looks just like a ssn except it starts with a 9. Employers issue them a 1099 and they pay no taxes and never file.
Hire one legal worker, pay him and he distributes the cash to all his other buddies. Used in landscaping and roofing. Illegal crew leaders.
Coming here illegally - having a baby who immediately is issued a ssn card - and you just make sure you name the baby exactly the same as your name and then going to work legally. The next child born, you sell or give the card to one of your friends or relatives.
We need a guest worker program like used to work before chavez and the unions got rid of it. Any employer that wishes to fill a position with a guest worker must send 25% of that workers wages to a holding account. When the worker legally exits the US they are given 15% of that money back. If they don't legally exit that money is forfeited and used to find them and return them to their country.
Until illegal aliens can't find work, they will keep coming.
