Trump Weaponizes the Social Security Administration

In its pursuit to deport the nation’s undocumented residents, the Trump Administration has weaponized the social security administration. In recent weeks, that agency has sent letters to a wide range of businesses, especially in the Central Valley, notifying employers that information submitted in wage and tax statements does not match the SSA’s records. Employers who received the letter have 60 days to submit corrected information to the government. The move is sending shock waves throughout the valley and the state. Vic Bedoian reports from Fresno.
