From the National Immigration Law Center
Litigation Update on Social Security No-Match Letters
DHS Rule - DHS has requested another extension in the case brought against it by NILC, AFL-CIO, ACLU and others. As a result the case is still on hold, but more importantly this means that the injunction remains in effect and employers should not be implementing the DHS Rule. This also means that SSA has not sent out any employer no-match letters.
We would also like to take this opportunity to thank those of you who signed onto the letter asking DHS to drop it's misguided attempt to use SSA as arm of immigration enforcement. If you would like to see a copy of the sign-on letter to Secretary Napolitano, please click here. (There were a few organizations who submitted sign-on's after we sent the letter, we are sorry that we weren't able to add you to the final letter).
