A REAL e-verify program, with actual work-site enforcement, will solve this serious problem. You don't even have to arrest and deport the illegals you catch (that's a logistical nightmare), just fine the employer $2,000 the first time around and $5,000 there after, for each illegal they employ.
Dry up those jobs and the illegals will deport themselves.
Instead of trying to end birth-right citizenship (which we SHOULD do, but it'll take quite a while) just don't give the parents a work visa.
Nothing could be easier.
Someone put Obama through E-Verify and he didn’t pass.
Obama Informed of ‘E-Verify’ Notice of Mismatch
It’s not going to happen because our legislatures on all levels are whores of whoever pays for their (re)election campaigns. And that largely means lawyers and businesspeople, including those who profit off of illegals.
The sources of bribes were public information before the creation of Superpacs. The Big Money corruption has gone fully underground, now. The rest remains in public view.
An E-verify that checks SSN against IRS home / work address requirement for all employees. A six month implementation for business to give them time to change processes and record their documentation. Then a INS / IRS cooperation to ensure that each W4 is accompanied by an E-verify confirmation / case number. Then a final 6 months to resolve any descrepancy case numbers.
That gives you 18 months of implementation and enforcement. AFter that, start hitting businesses with tax adjustments based upon failure to comply. Set up a whistle blower number where individuals can report in on e-verify cheats and receive a portion of the penalty as a reward for their whistle blowing.
24 months after the start of this plan, you will make it very difficult for any businss to hire an illegal alien. Only under the table type work will be possible. This will drive a lot of workers out of the country and self deportation will start to happen. Further, word will spread and it will reduce the number that come here in the first place.
For illegals that are here but are arrested for non-violent crimes, have an option for them to work 2 years in a hard labor camp making compressed earth blocks that will be used to build the wall(s) for the southern boarder. Alternatively, teach them how to lay bricks and work on building the wall itself. Give the option of working hard and earning X number of points and then they can be deported to their country of origin. Points will be given for brick production, transportaion, laying, support services such as cooking, laundry etc. Points will be taken away for fighting and other rules infractions.
With all due respect, the heck with a fine. I’d put some real teeth in e-verify, levying fines and jail time to law-breaking employers.
