    Well done ICE ! But there are about 60,000 gang members, and 600,000 illegal alien criminals here. There is an easier way to get rid of them. Call your Represenatives and demand a new law giving you the right to check your SSN to see if someone is using it. Also demand that SSA be forced to write to you each time someone uses your number. Believe it or not, it is illegal for SSA to tell you this now. Once you find out form a bad credit report etc that there is a problem, then you can get help. By then it it is too late, your credit is ruined, you can get stuck with the illegals bills, taxes and lose your own SS benefits permanently! The worst part? They are starting to use kids SSNs because it takes longer to get caught. Your kid could have his credit ruined for life. But if every American was checking their own SSN periodically, you would should have most illegals identified and deported. Business does not want this, tha tis why they let Americans financial lives be ruine.
