Steal My Number, Please

This report on a pending treaty between the United States and Mexico that would permit illegal aliens to obtain social security benefits fails to answer a very basic question: since illegals typically use forged identification, including fake Social Security numbers, how will the government be able to figure out who is owed compensation and in what amounts?

Given that multiple persons will sometimes use the same fake Social Security number, it would seem that this would be an impossible quandary.

However, it could provide an example of a circumstance in which it would be good to have one's identity stolen: if a couple of dozen illegal immigrants all use The Oracle's Social Security number, then the benefits should really start rolling in some day.

Well, perhaps not. The article makes reference to "fat Social Security checks." The author must not have talked to anyone on Social Security.
