MSNBC.com: Illegal Immigrants Aren’t Stealing Identities, They Are Sharing Them!

You see the poor, hardworking people who can’t come to this country legally really are the victims who had no other choice but to ‘share’ the Social Security number of actual citizens.

From the subheadline for the front page tease to the May 27 edition of "Red Tape Chronicles" (see screencap above at right):

Millions of Americans find themselves sharing Social Security identies with others, mostly undocumented workers looking to get around federal employment laws.

Of course, you're lucky if just one person is "sharing" your Social Security Number (SSN). MSNBC.com blogger Bob Sullivan noted one Chicago woman who had 37 other people fraudulently claiming her number. Yet at no point in his 33-paragraph post did Sullivan describe the claiming of other people's SSNs as "fraud."

Newsbusters has more on this story of ‘sharing’.

Thanks to Larwyn.
