IRS allows fake social security numbers for illegal immigrants

Fake social security numbers are against the law, but the IRS tolerates them when used for employment purposes.   This is true even when the Social Security administration notifies them about the fraud.  This is so that the U.S. government can tax the earnings of illegal immigrants.

When called on this breach of the law, IRS officials say, “no harm, no foul.”  Isn’t it better, they say, that illegal immigrants have to pay taxes, rather than that they earn their wages tax free?

Well, if they couldn’t get on payrolls because they didn’t have a genuine social security number, they wouldn’t be getting jobs, so they would have no incentive to be entering the country illegally!  This sounds like an obvious area for enforcement, if the government were interested in any kind of enforcement.   [Read more…]

Germany’s second thoughts on immigrants

No country has been more welcoming of Middle Eastern immigrants than Germany, which has looked to a influx of one million new residents a year as a solution to its demographic population implosion.  But now Germany, along with other European nations, is having second thoughts.

Even sympathizers of the refugees are having problems with what happened in Cologne on New Year’s Eve.  In the square between the train station and the magnificent cathedral (a place I’ve actually been to with my friends who live there, including at another crowded fire works night), around a thousand men of “Arab or Northern African appearance” sexually assaulted every non-hijab wearing woman in sight.  They crowded around women and groped and robbed them, with reports of at least two rapes.
