For the first time in twelve years, the Social Security Administration (SSA) is notifying employers that there is “no match” between the name and the reported Social Security number of an employee. George W. Bush stopped the no-match notifications in 2007.
For employers who do not voluntarily use E-Verify to prove that their new hire has the right to work in our country (either a U.S. citizen or a legal immigrant with a work visa), “no match” gives them indisputable proof of whether their worker is legal, or not.
The new terminology for the “no-match” is Employer Correction Request Notices (EDCOR), and is a big improvement over the previous program, which only notified employers of a “no-match” if they had 10 or more employees. The new one notifies every employer of every no-match within the Social Security Administration database.
Of course, those who support open borders and mass immigration, both legal and illegal, have protested in a letter to the SSA. Thursday May 2nd, 46 Democrats signed a letter to the SSA declaring, This action will cause numerous problems by diverting resources away from frontline workers whose primary mission is administering benefits … . Additionally, this rule can result in increased discrimination and abuses against U.S. workers, particularly women.
“Particularly women.” How’s that again? Nonsense.
The Hill also reports, Another letter signed by 146 labor and immigration organizations and sent to Berryhill on Thursday made the case that no-match letters are ineffective, endanger U.S. citizens and labor rights, and could overwhelm SSA resources. More nonsense.
Common discrepancies that could now trigger a no-match letter include changed names from marriage, typos and misspellings. That’s fine. Any discrepancy should be corrected as soon as it is discovered. If there are any errors in the Social Security database, it makes sense to find them and correct them when the worker is 25 or 35 or 45 years old, rather than wait until he/she is 65 and applying for benefits.
Congressman Jesus Garcia (D-IL) of Chicago, claims that the purpose of EDCOR is “… to create more anti-immigrant sentiment in the country … and instability in communities with large immigrant populations.” This is the typical lie and misinformation from open borders advocates who don’t know, or won’t acknowledge, the difference between immigrants and illegal aliens.
Employers are provided a sample letter to give to their employee to verify the information. At the bottom is this notification:
NOTE: This notice does not imply that you intentionally provided incorrect information about your name or Social Security Number, nor does this adversely affect your employment.
Well, it should adversely affect their employment, and terminate it if they are illegal aliens, or any alien working illegally in our country.
You have enemies? Good. That means you’ve stood up for something, sometime in your life. [Winston Churchill.]
