Why don't we simply make it EXTREMELY EXPENSIVE to get caught using illegal labor?
They wouldn't come here if no one was willing to hire them because they can't afford the fines.

Silly... silly Americans.
What is Illegal Immigration really about?
Plain and simple.
You don't have to import cheap labour, you don't have to outsource cheap labour, the cheap labour comes right to you.
That's what this is really about, that's the reality of the situation, if you were to completely and totally quash illegal immigration tommorow to 0, the economy, especially on the border states would suffer.
So while ideally the Federal Government would completely close the border (not that's it's actually possible) the economic realities make it self defeating and both Republican and Democratic administrations have found this to be the case.
