…should go to reducing the US public debt. I’m serious – that’s money that RAISED the debt, so ALL money saved from stopping illegal aliens from committing fraud should go to debt reduction.
Here’s how it could work:
Take the amount of their yearly fraud, multiply by at least 5 years or the time they got away with it – whichever is greater. Take that amount from the budget of that agency that was lax about following the rules. If the agency has to reduce services, or even let some employees go, well, that’s just the price that their facilitation of crimes costs.
THEY choose to do allow the crime. THEY should suffer the consequences.
Of course, any fines go straight to debt reduction, not to the agency.
There is also MORE money that should be forfeit, and applied to public debt reduction:
The FOIA records produced by SSA as a result of IRLI’s lawsuit have shown that, from 2012 to 2016, there were 39 million instances where names and Social Security numbers on W-2 tax forms did not match the corresponding Social Security records. Additionally, over $409 billion was added to the Earnings Suspense File (ESF), which holds uncredited wages that can’t be correctly matched to SSA’s database. From 1937 to 2005, $519 billion was reported to be sitting in the ESF. In tax year 2016, that number rose to over $1.5 trillion.
Let me be clear – the agencies that facilitated this FRAUD on the American public should NOT be able to profit from their CRIMES. That money should NOT be given to the agency, but to reducing the debt we owe.
I’ve written about asset forfeiture before. In my home state, it’s a major problem in some counties.
This is a practice that needs to be eliminated, or at least heavily restricted to property belonging to CONVICTED felons. We could do a lot to reduce prosecutorial abuses by stopping them from profiting from the practice.
A not-mentioned, but likely tactic that the Left will try to use against Trump is to seize his assets, under the pretense that they were part of a crime. Note that the state NEVER HAS TO PROVE THAT A CRIME WAS COMMITTED. All that is needed is an indictment.
Who would benefit from that asset forfeiture? NY state and city would.
I urge everyone to go to the link below – it will astound and infuriate you to realize the abuse of this law to enrich the law enforcement arm of the state.
Read about Joe Biden’s connection to the legislation.
Hillary rabid in response!
Now, it’s clear that Liz Warren was not correct about her heritage. That’s not uncommon – Ancestry and 23 & Me have up-ended a lot of ancestry assumptions.
Mine included. I had always been told of my ancestor, Indian Billy Ice, a native of the WV/OH/PA region, who had been taken by the Indians after his mother and infant sister were killed by raiders, along with his brother’s fiancee.
He and his sister (not clear whether there were two of them, or only one sister) lived with the Indians, until released under the treaty that ended the Pontiac War. His sister had been traded (some say sold) to another tribe, not involved in the war, and never returned to live with her family. She made a brief visit many years later, but declined to stay when invited.
Billy was release with his live-in woman, and their six kids (yes, he’d been quite busy during his captivity). She returned shortly after to her family, and Billy married another settler – that was my ancestor.
So, despite there being some Native American (Indian) Ice relatives, after a lot of research on Ancestry.com, it was clear that we were not, despite family stories, part of that branch of the family.
So, I get it, I really do – we grew up thinking we were racially mixed. I never traded on that supposed background – I just marked White on the boxes.
And, this turned out to be quite correct – according to the DNA analysis on 23&Me, I’m over 98% Northern European, mostly English, Irish, and Scottish. The rest Dutch and German.
Just like Liz Warren. I’m just a smidge Iberian Peninsula – less than 2 %.
So, what does it all mean?
To have believed one story for a long time is not unusual. To have used such a slight connection to parley it into a prestigious faculty position is, however. An ethical person would offer to resign, after the connection is proved to be false.
Which, she did not. Hence, the nickname, Lyin’ Liz.
Now, she is running – hard – for president. Her supporters believe that she has a good chance of making it in 2020 – which must fry Hillary’s ass!
Fauxcahantas, as Rush Limbaugh has dubbed her, is the new favorite media darling. I doubt she’ll make the finals, but, if she does – she’s in trouble! Trump will wipe the floor with her. In contrast to most of their competitors, Trump acts like a guy who thinks, You want to play with the guys? Prepare to be treated like one!
This drives feminist nuts. They’re used to being treated deferentially, and given a pass on any hard questioning. To have to face a guy who is used to dealing with union leaders, and doesn’t take crap from anyone, is a Feminist’s Worst Nightmare.
If current rates continue, there will be 863,000 Illegal Aliens given residence in the USA until their claimed asylum is processed. If they have the same ratio of no-shows to those bothering to show up for their hearing, about 1/3 will disappear into America’s communities. Kristen Gillibrand is peachy-keen with this.
Neither I, nor most of America is OK with this. It’s past time to deal with this. Yes, I now that food, including that served in restaurants, will have their price increase. Yes, I do understand that the cost of construction, lawn service, and other businesses that use a lot of illegal alien labor will have their costs raise, which will lead to higher prices.
Tough. Suck it up, Buttercup.
It’s worth it to get rid of Illegal Aliens, and send them home.
Let’s work to get those RINOs out of office, and replace them with those that will reliably vote Pro-America. There is more than enough time to find such people – and VET THEM PROPERLY. No one whose background cannot stand SEVERE scrutiny should be supported in their race. We don’t need another Pretend Republican voting against all of the issues that we need to hold the line on.
