I learned a few weeks ago that infamous liberal attorney Gloria Allred once argued, on behalf of client Nicky Diaz Santillan, the undocumented housemaid for former Republican gubernatorial candidate Meg Whitman, that if an employee gets a ‘No-Match’ or ‘Notice of Mismatch’ letter from the Social Security Administration (SSA) it most likely means that they are an undocumented worker and not eligible to work in the United States. I concur.
In other words they are an illegal alien or do not have a work visa.
As previously reported here, I came across a 2005 ruling that again confirms that a ‘No-Match’ letter raises, “legitimate concerns of INS violations and liability [for employers]…”.1
For those of you who may not know, employers are required by law to run an employee’s name and Social Security Number (SSN) through the government run program called E-Verify2 to see if their employee is eligible to work in the United States. The program is run in conjunction with the SSA and Homeland Security. A ‘No-Match’ response indicates discrepancies in the employees’ name and Social Security Number. What kind of discrepancy? They do not match. The SSN they are using does not go with the name they are using.
