i was almost denied my current job due to identity theft. i cant say FOR CERTAIN that it was an illegal mexican national, but when over 50% of the
work force for this particular company are Mexican nationals its hard to come to any other conclusion.
many of them are on work visa's, and about the same amount of them are illegal. how do i know that they are illegal? because they tell me. i work
next to them 10 hours a day and most of them dont even try to hide it. its easy to tell the difference, as the admittedly illegal ones who only speak
a few words of english have names like "hank" or "floyde", whereas the ones on work visa's keep their original names like "miguel" or
some of them speak better english than others, and they teach each other everyday as we work. but they make no bones about how they got here or how
everything works.its a complex system. i even had one explain to me how they print their own SS cards, how they obtain the identities, etc.
the company tryed to tell me that i had already worked there and was ineligible for re-hire, then when i reported it all to the FTC, the 3 credit
bureaus, social security, and the local police, it all magicly went away and was called a "computer glitch"
if somebody works under your name/social you can get a report from social security to get a rough estimate of how long they worked, where, and how
much they made... however that information is only reported to them about every 2 years. So if your in a case like mine, your stuck waiting to even
get any information on the situation outside the company itself. in 2 years time, they have likely moved on to another company, and your always stuck
2 steps behind them.
you have to constantly put fruad alerts on your credit, which only last every 90 days. im lucky to have even got my tax refund last year, as i hear
thats the latest growing issue.
on top of it all, theres not only a huge MS-13 presence in this place, but Los zetas associates are prevalent as well.
its real easy to identify MS-13, they are very open about their affiliation. the Mexican Mafia/Los zetas type are a little more covert though, and
blend in a lot better. they routinely attempt to pull dirty tricks to try to get people fired, only to replace them with their buddies. Why do they
tell me these things? well i suppose because they think im latino too, and im not unfriendly to them. they think im "norteno" or a northern born
mexican, however i am indian and italian.
the whole thing just really sucks, and the only people who seem to care are unable to do anything about it
