Employers Being Warned Over Fraudulent Social Security
WESLACO - The Social Security Administration sent thousands of letters warning employers who have employees with fraudulent social security numbers.
Oralia Herrera with Immigrant Hope believes people here illegally are in desperate need of a social security number.
"They come in with physical needs, educational needs, psychological needs, spiritual needs and no means of income; they're going to turn to crime," says Herrera.
The Social Security Administration has sent nearly 600,000 employer correction letters since March.
Their goal is to keep accurate earning records, cleaning out all fake and fraudulent socials in the process.
Herrera hopes the effort made by the government helps solve the problem.
