    Ignore the constitutionality.

    Imagine if that WERE the law.

    Would the problem disappear?

    Does capital punishment stop people from murdering?

    Make it a capital crime to employ undocumented workers/ immigrants.

    I think treating those who hire illegals the same way we do mobsters, drug dealers and other criminals who profit from illegal activities would greatly deter these scum from hiring illegals. That means making these employers subject to prison time,severe fines , loss of business licenses, and after a guilty conviction subject to asset seizure and forfeiture laws.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    The five great lies of the Left Wrong:
    We can be Godless and free. • “Social justice” through forced redistribution of wealth. • Silencing religious opinions counts as “diversity”. • Freedom without moral and personal responsibility. • Civilization can survive the intentional undermining of the family.

    It wouldn't for the simple reason that the death penalty takes decades, at the very least, to carry out. If it happened the next day, yes, as it stands now, no. Besides, it's really pointless, just levy a $10,000 fine for every single infraction, going up to the revocation of the business license on the third offense. You won't see anyone hiring illegals.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    No, there are far more sensible solutions.

    Mindless compassion is for fools. The fact is that any penalty that is not carried out in short order loses any ability to dissuade people from committing the same crime. It doesn't matter what the penalty is, none of them work if they are not quickly applied. How many people do you think would be afraid to rob a bank if they knew that they'd only be put in prison after they turned 75?

    Folks are answering this as if you had stated Capital Punishment instead of "capital crime". Maybe that was your intent? But as worded, "capital crime" just means that the death penalty can be giving, not that it will be.


    Would such classification solve the issue? That depends on other factors.

    If you had made it to "knowingly employ" and included making it a capital crime to come to the is country illegally, it might.
