"Employers must not hire undocumented aliens or temporary workers whose legal status has expired. They must report to the government the temporary workers they hire and who leave their employ so that we can keep track of people in the program and better enforce our immigration laws. There must be strong workplace enforcement with tough penalties for anyone -- for any employer violating these laws."

...and that question is, "why can't we go ahead and do that NOW"? If we did this today, most of the people who are here illegally would go home because they couldn't find jobs. So why do we have to wait until after we've made all these illegals who don't respect our laws into citizens to do this?

bump for a truism so simple, you weep at the knowledge that some continue to overlook it.

This is a classic example of mixing up the "PROBLEM" & "The SYMPTOM"! The problem is Employment. The symptom is the illegal aliens. Companies who knowingly hire un-documentable aliens create the problem by violating the rule and spirit of our laws. This stupid proposal rewards Criminals for doing so. Immigration is a natural desire we produce because of this nation's success and opportunity it creates. The symptomatic results of it all is that we make it so aluring to the have nots and then have no system to explain that it is a pay as you go program everyone must support openly and not from under the woodworks. Illegal aliens are takers not contributors and are content to remain so. Our system of rules must locate, identify and put them on the Tax Rolls and Social Security. This is how you control Immigration; it is a two way street not a black/brown hole!
