An article in the Aug. 19 edition of The Arizona Republic about the expected boom of the fake-document trade in Arizona featured comments from Orde Félix Kittrie, an associate professor at the Sandra Day O'Connor College of Law. In the article, headlined "New hiring law spurs ID-theft fears," reporter Daniel González quoted Kittrie as saying the nation's broken immigration system is to blame for the increased interest among undocumented workers for fraudulent green cards, Social Security cards and driver's licenses. Most are made with bogus numbers, but as migrants look for ways to circumvent Arizona's new employer-sanctions law and a new federal crackdown on illegal workers, authorities fear the push for more documents will drive more identify theft. "The risk is that experts in ID theft can turn around and use that skill to drain people's bank accounts and ruin their credit," Kittrie told González. "They can also turn around and sell fake IDs to underage drinkers, unqualified drivers or even terrorists." Read the rest of the article here.
