    Company didn't do its job, got caught (eventually).

    I hired a company that sends a couple of people to clean my place every couple of weeks.  I'm supposed to independently check their immigration status why, exactly?  I certainly don't care.

    And for those laughing at the SS ID check failures, I'm thinking they just run names against a list of known threats.  No positive hit, no problem.  As it should be.

      were illegal immigrants cleaning his house but apparently there's no or utterly inadequate security checks for these cleaners even though they were inside the house of one of the highest ranking officials of our nation's security apparatus. One of them could have just as easily been an illegal immigrant with ties to radical groups who could have rifled through and photographed papers, overheard important conversations and secrets, placed bugs in the house, or downloaded files off of computers; for the latter all it would've taken was noticing Mr. Chertoff was on his computer working then create a diversion to quickly draw him away from it and bam that innocuous cleaning lady has just stolen national security secrets she's now selling to the highest bidder. It is also a psychological blow because if, with the billions and billions of dollars spent on national security as of late, they couldn't even keep Chertoff's home secure how are they supposed to keep the rest of America secure?
