DREAMers have a functioning social security number. Only the physical social security card will reveal that that social security number is to be used temporarily, said Vaughan after reading SSA’s statement.
Vaughan said that the scarcely used E-Verify system would be able to flag DREAMers, but currently only about ten percent of employers use the system. E-Verify is a web-based system that compares the information on their prospective employees employment form to government data, including Social Security data.
President Obama has generally been resistant to fully implementing E-Verify while Mitt Romney has pledged to work until it’s 100% implemented.
The path is not completely clear for the DREAMers, however. They won’t be able to get driver’s licenses in all states. Arizona first took the lead, and since then Nebraska, Mississippi, and Texas have followed suit. All four states have banned new DREAMers from being eligible for state welfare benefits, food stamps, unemployment, and getting a driver’s license.
On June 15, 2012, President Obama used a Rose Garden speech to announce a new policy that effectively put into place administratively what he and congressional Democrats had failed to do legislatively his entire first term in office: make the DREAM Act a reality. By doing so, he gave temporary legal status along with two years of work authorization to millions of illegal aliens that came to the United States with their parents. The policy took full effect on August 15. It’s estimated as many as 1.7 million illegal aliens will be able to apply for the new program, called a “deferred action.”
