School Gives Fake S.S. Nos. To Illegal Aliens
But Hey, They Can Use The Teachers!
I’m the grandson of immigrants. My father did not learn to speak English until he went to school. I am all for immigration, and want to see the number of immigrants admitted to the country increased. Drastically. Yesterday.
Illegal immigration is not the same thing, and it’s not the same issue.
It’s been reported almost everywhere today, starting with this, given to us by Drudge.
Years after being advised by a state agency to stop, the Dallas Independent School District continued to provide foreign citizens with fake Social Security numbers to get them on the payroll quickly.
Some of the numbers were not fake.
Some of the numbers were real Social Security numbers already assigned to people elsewhere. And in some cases, the state’s educator certification office unknowingly used the bogus numbers to run criminal background checks on the new hires, most of whom were brought in to teach bilingual classes.
If the report from the Dallas News is to be believed (caveat emptor), the practice went on for years and came to a halt this summer. The school district has an investigative unit, called the Office of Professional Responsibility, which discovered in 2004 that the school district was issuing fake numbers.
We note that the newspaper first reporting this story, the Dallas News, uses in it’s headline the word “faulted”, as if the school had made an administrative error. What the school did was illegal. Michelle Malkin and Ed Morrissey make the point that the press won’t.
The Dallas News won’t come out and say it, but it’s blindingly obvious this school district was cooking up fake Social Security numbers for illegal alien teachers (referred to in the report as “foreign educators”). Which means they committed at least three crimes: ID fraud, hiring illegal aliens, and felonious aiding/abetting illegal aliens.
And then they tried to cover it up.
This isn’t the first fraud involving DISD, either. And this should have been apparent two years ago, when the local CBS affiliate discovered that some of DISD’s “bilingual” educators didn’t speak English.
So what part of illegal don’t they understand?
