    IDENTIFY THEFT A FEDERAL CRIME
    so why are illegal aliens not prosecuted?

    The FBI calls identity theft one of the fastest growing crimes in the United States and estimates that 500,000 to 700,000 Americans become identity theft victims each year.

    Identity theft is a federal crime. It occurs when one person's identification (which can include name, social security number, or any account number) is used or transferred by another person for unlawful activities.

    Nicky Diaz--identity thief or guiltless illegal immigrant?October 12th, 2010 7:00 am ET.

    "Bogus" or "fake" have been used by the media to describe the Social Security number used by Nicandra Diaz Santillan. Santillan, known as Nicky Diaz, is the former housekeeper of California Gubernatorial Candidate Meg Whitman. Few reporters and commentators link Diaz to identity theft, a felonious crime punishable under state and federal laws. The nationally publicized Diaz debacle illustrates the failure of the media to connect the dots between identity theft, illegal immigration and related crimes.
    Our research suggests that the Social Security number used by Diaz is not bogus. The number was issued in California in 1978, and it is associated with another woman that lives in Southern California, who is either a victim of identity theft or a co-conspirator in identity fraud.
    Did Diaz or a third party steal the Southern California woman's Social Security number from which Diaz's Social Security card was forged? Or did the woman willingly share her Social Security number with Diaz aiding and abetting in identity fraud? Either way, misuse of another person's Social Security number to obtain employment is an identity theft offense under both federal and state laws.
    If she used the U.S. Postal Service, the Internet or bank wires for any of the transactions, she could also face other federal charges.

    She and other illegal aliens will never be prosecuted.____________

    Unlawfully re-entering the United States after deportation: A maximum penalty of two years in federal prison without parole and a fine up to $250,000.

    Never enforced. When caught they are merely deported again and again.

    I recommend using an identity theft protection service like Lifelock. Real Protection. Real Peace of Mind. They are currently offering 10% off if you use promo code SAFEID1. Hope this helps.
    I 'm also a contracted representative of LifeLock, so if you have any questions about their identity theft protection services, let me know.

    If she had a valid Social Security Number then Whitman did nothing wrong.

    Evidently she did not because social security saw a discrepancy or they would not have notified Whitman.

    We can't even get the Federal government to run the illegal aliens out of the country. You want them to arrest them for committing crimes? Surely you jest.
