Can I Hire a Worker Whose Social Security Card Says "Valid Only With DHS Authorization"?

The card might be valid, but the work authorization hasn't been proven.
I run a small landscaping company that sometimes hires workers from other countries, but I’ve come across a situation that I’ve never seen before. A recently hired worker showed me a card that says, “Valid only with DHS authorization.” What is this? Is it okay to accept it for purposes of Form I-9?
