identity thieves!

Oh Lord. Oh no. Grab your kids. Lock up your pets and secure that harddrive… migrant workers are stealing our identities!

My God, someone’s out there right now pretending to be me. Except you know, I’m wayyyy too much of a pussy to work in a meat packing plant plus I’m a vegetarian so they’re not doing a very good job of appropriating my shit.

On the serious tip, this is insane. The press is taking Michael Chertoff’s line about protecting Americans from identity theft as if all these workers are a bunch of meth freaks buying iPods for resale with your credit card rather than finding a bogus social # and depositing money in random folks accounts so they can get a dangerous, deskilled job that no native would volunteer for.

I’m sure all the Tancredoites are feeling good bout the gov’mint tonight…

Or am I missing something here?

    if a brown skinned John W wants to work at a chicken plant doing that kind of work, more power to ’em cuz the white skinned one, sure as hell doesn’t want to.

    Well, the timing was somewhat tacky but a crime’s a crime. I once opened a credit card bill and found that someone had charged her phone bill to my card – using my nickname, for Pete’s sake. It was unsettling to know that someone who knew me had used my credentials. I did my best to make sure she was prosecuted. If this isn’t an important issue to you, then I can see how it would seem insane. I hope that at the least, it will encourage other illegals to have a plan in place for their children to be cared for in case they are dragged in. Just like anybody who lives on the edge should.
