Immigration Issues/requirements to have social security number


It is my understanding that you cannot get a work permit until you get a social security number. What are the requirements set by Immigration and Citizenship if you are from Mexico?

I am a US citizen and have freinds from several countries . Some seem to have an easier path to living/working here than others.

You can obtain a social security number IF you have been legally admitted into the US as permanent resident or a non-immigrant work visa.  Keep in mind there is extensive identity fraud in the US...many who seem to "have an easier path", might actually be involved.
