The article reports on the plan of the U.S. Homeland Security Department (DHS) to implement a rule to use Social Security records to enforce immigration laws despite protests from businesses, organized labor and immigrant-rights groups. According to critics, such move will affect legal workers and the economy. Employers are facing a fine of as much as $16,000 per worker for knowingly employing illegal immigrants. A legal challenge by labor business and other groups postponed the rule since August 2007.
