We know that Nicky is a liar. She is here illegally - my statement was not worded accurately. I should have said Nicky is not the only liar here. There are no degrees of liars, you are either a liar or you are not. Whitman and her husband are lying. Nicky has commited a crime for being here illegally, Whitman for hiring her.Did you really just say Nikki is not a liar? Do you want to correct that, or do you plan on sticking with it? Individual "A" who saw a letter nearly 10 years ago and, allegedly forgot. Individual "B" who indicated she was here legally, provided stolen identity and falsified documents. I think most people would call "B" the bigger liar out of the two.
As much as Whitman claims that she will get tough on illegals and that those who hire them should be held accountable, I would think she would have taken all the necessary precautions to make sure she didn't hire an illegal. All your suggestions are just excuses for someone that clearly broke the law, but like typical cons, you give them a pass.I've heard the maid speak - she speaks fine, but with a heavy accent. Which is similar to my neighbor. I wasn't suspicious at all of my neighbor, until you told me I should be. You apparently have this position that all accented individuals are suspicious and should be referred to INS. At least this is what you support when it comes to Meg and her maid.
I was just pointing out that many employers do that to keep from being found out that they hire illegals. If that were to be the case with Whitman, it will be even harder for Whitman's story to be believed.She wasn't being paid under the table. Again, no one is accusing her of this, including the maid or either of the maid's attorneys. That would be a real scandal and would provide evidence to bolster Nikki's claim that Whitman knew of her status.
Well, then I guess Meg Whitman is lying about that also.Lastly, the SSA just began sending not match letters to employers in 2004 (per the SSA website). Prior to that, they only sent them to the employees. How did the letter allegedly go out to the employer (whitman) in April 2003, before they were even sending them to employers?
By the end of the day, Whitman's campaign acknowledged it was possible that the couple had received a letter alerting them in 2003 that personal data submitted for the employee didn't match government records.
Whitman had vehemently denied receiving such a letter from the Social Security Administration in a news conference just minutes before the housekeeper, Nicky Diaz Santillan, unveiled it Thursday at the offices of her attorney, Gloria Allred.
Mark Lassiter, a spokesman for the Social Security Administration in Washington, D.C., said the agency's practice was to send so-called no-match letters between 2003 and 2006 to employers with 10 or more employees whose Internal Revenue Service records contained discrepancies between names and Social Security numbers.

Overview of Social Security Employer No-Match Letters Process
From your link:
SSA began sending no-match letters to workers in 1979 and to employers in 1994.
Employers should stop hiring them - and they should face criminal charges if they hire them. The gov has provided a method for them to check them out that would get the employer of the hook if the employee turns out to be illegal. It is free and Whitman should have used it.I think that illegals should be deported and it should be much harder for illegals to obtain jobs.
That is not a correct statement. Every other country does not deny citizenship to children born of non-citizens. Where do you get your info?I think children of non-citizens born in this country should not automatically be granted citizenship, just as it is done in every other coutnry.
Countries granting citizenship to people who are born in that nation include American Samoa, Antigua and Barbuda, Brazil, Argentina, Azerbaijan, Barbados, Belize, Bolivia, Canada, Columbia, Dominica, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, El Salvador, Fiji, Grenada and Guatemala. Also Honduras, Jamaica, Lesotho, Mexico, Nicaragua, Pakistan, Panama, Paraguey, Peru, Pridnestrovian Moldavian Republic, Saint Christopher and Nevis, Saint Lucia, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus, Uruguay and Venezuela.

Perhaps that is what many do - the reason we have the problem.But, no. If I suspected someone of being illegal, I wouldn't turn that person in.
