"If you want to think of it in legal terms, it would be that a person has to be put upon notice of what the crime is," Koos said. "And in this case, it's knowingly to use someone else's identity. My client didn't know he had someone else's Social Security number, he just had a number."


Koos lost the case on appeal, and his immigrant client is now serving five years in federal prison. But Koos' argument has been backed by other appeals courts — and he thinks the Supreme Court may need to resolve the dispute.


The issue is coming up more often because of another part of the Bush administration's immigration crackdown. More and more companies are using a federal computer program that can detect fake Social Security numbers. But it can't tell when real numbers are used by another person — which has fueled a growing market for stolen IDs.
"The issue is whether people using false identifications should be held accountable for that," said Bob Teig, a spokesman for the U.S. Attorney's office in northern Iowa, which prosecuted the Agriprocessors case.

Yes it does! Illegal aliens realize they cannot legally work in the U.S., and are well aware of the fact that they MUST use a stolen or fake SSN. When they paid the guy in a back alley, did they think they were actually in an SSA office?

Next they’ll claim they didn’t realize they had committed a crime by entering the country without legal permission. This is simply one of the myriad tactics used to circumvent our laws.

They will claim anything because they think the "gringos" are stupid and the black people should be in agreement with them. The more we hear/read and learn the more obvious it becomes that their culturally embedded flaws of lying, cheating and stealing is not limited to their corrupt governments.

They are as much to blame for the 3rd world conditions as the oligarchies.
