    Re: Should employing illegal immigrants result in a jail sentence?

    Big employers of illegal workers are fined.

    We don't have the enforcement agents to investigate every claim of an illegal worker working.

    People just don't seem to understand all this enforcement, and fining, and arresting, and deporting costs money...to make any significant impact.

    The reason nothing is happening on immigration is because nothing doesn't cost so much.

    They should also have their businesses closed and no right to re-open a biz for a period of time. Otherwise they just keep doing it again and again and the fines are just acceptable losses.

    The government can't control the border, how in the hell are they going to police every small business in the US? Lets puts this in perspective. How many illegals are working for homeowners, as cooks, nannies, maids, lawn care, etc. Then how many illegals are working on small constructions jobs, like framers, brick layers, roofers, concrete, tile setters, the list goes on and on. Now how many illegals are self employed as common labor. How many illegals stand on the corner of every city and I guy comes along and hires them for a day or two or thee. How many small businesses are there that hire illegals such as motel workers, cooks, dish washers, small nurseries, commercial fishing etc etc etc.

    Then you have sanctuary cities harboring illegals, the federal government harboring illegals, churches harboring illegals, homes harboring illegals, illegals harboring illegals. The list goes on.

    Then you now have illegals coming across our border and when they do that go hunt down an Obama border agent to be taken care of.

    Any you think Big government is going to police and raid every home and small business looking for an illegal.

    The point is there are millions of homeowner and small businesses and self-employed illegals, there is no way in hell big daddy is going to police anything. Especially with an Obama open border policy. Yeah right, Obama has an open border policy and then he is going to jail US Citizens for the job he is unwilling to do at the border.

    No one is ever going to jail for putting an illegal to work, how do you expect them to live. Hell when they come across the border we house and feed them and give them medical care, at least when an Illegal is working he can support himself.

    Where is all the sympathy from the left, these are poor people they need jobs to provide for their families. Or do you liberals want them on the government dole.

    Jail time is stupid in this case, that just wastes our money. Instead, if we fine them to the point where their company is destroyed after multiple offenses the govt. not only kills an unethical business but it also saves a lot of resource spending on jails.
    Which is entirely fine with me, I think a $10,000 fine, per offense, first time out is going to stop 99.999% of people hiring illegals anyhow.

    If you make the fines high enough, the fines alone pay for enforcement. Charge the companies for the cost of deporting as well. Make it really, really hurt.

    Unless they have some sort of instant check in place,
    How is an employer suppose to know someone is illegal?
    Many states already offer Drivers Licenses to illegals.
    Other than Government jobs, most jobs don't ask.

    Doing nothing is costing $10 of billions to taxpayers across the country.

    There is clearly another reason nothing is being done.

    How about closing down the White House, Obama is not closing the border, so why in the hell should anyone expect they would go after a homeowner for hiring a maid.

    And why should they, but most important, there is no requirement to prove anyone is illegal or not, nor does anyone have the legal authority to prove anyone is illegal or not. So to think big daddy government is going raid homes to see if you have an illegal nanny is absurd.

    This is what E Verify is for. It needs to be implemented in its full form nationwide. Currently I believe it is a state option.
