Protest On No-Match Letters

This happened just before the injunction that prevents Social Security from mailing the new no-match letters and may be a sign on what is to come if Social Security is able to go ahead with sending the new no-match letters. From the Seattle Post Intelligencer:
More than a dozen representatives of labor, church and immigrant-rights groups gathered Thursday outside the Social Security Administration office in Seattle, trying to dissuade its administrator from taking steps they said will lead to mass firings nationwide.

The petitioners handed a request to SSA spokeswoman Joy Chang asking administrator Don Schoening to refrain from mailing so-called no-match letters next week. Chang agreed to consider a meeting addressing the group's concerns.
I do not know who Don Schoening is.

Illegal aliens should be deported, not supported.

This just the reason that immigration "reform" bill was BS. Juan and Jose would have got a free pass and bonehead judges like this one would say the enforcement provisions violated someone's rights and wouldn't be done.

Don Schoening is Acting Regional Commissioner for Seattle Region of SSA.
The story is laughable. The no-match notices are done centrally, probably through a contractor, and no one lower than the Commissioner has any say or authority in the matter.
