James Di Napoli told The Daily Caller News Foundation that his  father sold his social security information to illegal immigrants when he was 17, and his life has been in limbo ever since.

“The amount of trauma this has caused me has been overwhelming, it’s just destroyed my life,” Di Napoli said.

Illegal immigrants in California allegedly used Di Napoli’s social security number to work illegally in the U.S., generating fraudulent income on his Federal Student Aid records. As a result, Di Napoli owed thousands of dollars in tuition and was forced to take a leave of absence from Colorado Christian University.

Colorado Republican Rep. Doug Lamborn’s office in 2012 attempted to address Di Napoli’s student loan default, but the Department of Education did not take further action when lobbied by the office.

Despite serving his country, Di Napoli had to live on the streets from 2012 to 2013. All the while he was subjected to numerous audits from the California Franchise Tax Board due to illegal immigrants fraudulently using his social security number.

When Di Napoli's home state of Colorado asked California officials to take action on behalf of the distressed veteran, the California Department of Justice under Harris, said it was up to local law enforcement.  

They blatantly refused to help, Di Napoli suspects because his experience clashed with the left's narrative and did nothing to boost Harris' political career.

While Di Napoli remains in identification limbo, unable to obtain the needed credit to find meaningful employment, Harris – now a U.S. Senator – has seen her political fortunes rise dramatically.

“As California’s Attorney General, I know what a crime looks like,” she tweeted in February 2017. “Let me tell you that an undocumented immigrant is not a criminal.”

Neither Harris' Senate office or the California Attorney General's office returned requests for comment.
