Fraud and Immigration

"Illegal immigrants are not “undocumented.” They have fraudulent documents such as counterfeit Social Security cards, forged drivers licenses, fake “green cards,” and phony birth certificates. Experts suggest that approximately 75 percent of working-age illegal aliens use fraudulent Social Security cards to obtain employment."

"Unfortunately, State Department senior managers have not required or encouraged consular officers — even those assigned to manage fraud prevention units — to get the necessary training and learn about the new tools to counter fraud."
