Must read. Good one to print out and read on the subway or bus. Or, if you’re a McCain-backing agribusiness/service-industry executive, in your Bentley. Use recycled paper!

What’s that? You demand a fair use excerpt? Oh, twist my arm:

One disturbing theory: health-care employees with access to children’s files are working for organized gangs that trade in illegal documents and are willing to pay richly for the data. “We have a major problem with workers in medical offices stealing patients’ identities, selling them and making a direct profit,” Sergeant James Bracke of the Phoenix Police Department told authors of the Arizona report. The gangs can afford these bribes because identity theft has become such a big business. In Phoenix, “coyotes,” the smugglers who lead illegal immigrants over our borders, have created a network of phony-document producers and safe houses where undocumented workers can wait until they get their fraudulent papers.

Author Steven Malanga doesn’t even get into the most sinister aspect of the subculture of identity theft that our open borders engenders: it’s not just day-laborers who use the services of these document fraudsters and identity thieves. There’s a 7-11 in Falls Church, Virginia where this whole system went about as wrong as it possibly could.

But remember, illegal immigration is a victimless crime. Now I’m going to go check the mailbox; I was expecting some ID documents for my kids a month ago and they’ve never showed up…
