When in down in the CW portion on 40m, I hear hams talking using SSB starting on 7.050. Who or what is this?

They are foreign stations.

The U.S. is one of the few countries that does not allow phone transmission below 7150 kHz.  Canadians, Mexicans, South Americans, Europeans, et al. have privileges down there, it's part of their regular phone band...

Actually there are US licensed amateur stations who are authorized to use voice in the 7075-7100 range.
Stations in ITU region 1 and 3 and those US licensees west of 130 deg west or south of 20 deg north except the continental US ( 97.305(c) and 97.307(f)(11) )

You will hear KH6 and other pacific area US hams and others.  I believe the US Virgin Islands is authorized.

Many US hams dont seem to know this, I cant tell you the number of times I get answers to cq's that consist of some ham telling me Im not allowed to use that portion of 40 meters because its the foreign phone band. They wont sign their calls.
