Widespread Identity Theft by Illegal aliens

Dale Wilcox, executive director  of the Immigration Law Institute (IRLI), says that identity theft from American citizens by illegal aliens is widespread. Wilcox noted that “Studies have found that it affects children the most.  .  .  [I]llegal aliens prefer to use children’s Social Security numbers because [a] child .  .  . won’t apply for a loan for years, so the illegal aliens probably won’t be caught for decades possibly. A lot of Americans are being harmed by this. These poor kids, when they go to get their first school loan, they’ve got criminal histories .  .  . and bad credit. This is not a victimless crime.”
