    Why the feds must crack down on companies employing illegal immigrants

    Why the feds must crack down on companies employing illegal immigrants

    When immigrants continue to set out for the United States in droves mostly to find jobs, it's time to hold the US employers of illegals accountable, too.AFP/Getty Images

    If a child trespasses onto a property, lured by an abandoned car or swimming pool, say, then it is the property owner’s responsibility to remove the temptations and secure the area.

    This is the law of the “attractive nuisance” — something that is dangerous and attractive to children who do not appreciate its danger.

    In the same way, the United States has created an attractive nuisance for desperately poor people from Latin America and elsewhere.

    After declining for years, illegal border crossings are sharply up at the moment.

    Here the Trump administration is a victim of its own good fortune: With the US economy booming, illegal immigrants have a wider choice of work options — and more lucrative ones, too.

    Not every illegal immigrant coming to the United States is seeking a job (or is attached to a job-seeker), but employment is overwhelmingly the most important reason they are lured here.

    This problem can be mitigated. The federal government can and should mandate the use of E-Verify or another system to ensure legal eligibility to work in the United States and hold employers accountable to whatever degree of severity proves necessary.

    The Trump administration could, if it so chose, order federal prosecutors to go after companies (and individuals) who employ illegal immigrants.

    Deporting a few illegals, many of whom will only turn around and reenter the United States illegally once more, will not accomplish very much.

    Putting a couple of dozen crooked contractors and meat-packing executives in a federal penitentiary for a good long spell would.

    Removing the nuisance is one part of the solution. Securing the property is the other.

    While additional border barriers would be useful in some places, as the current rush across the border makes so dramatically clear, the Trump administration’s monomania for wall-building is inadequate to the actual job at hand.

    We’ll probably need some changes in areas that few people are talking about, such as banking, too.


    For a long time, visa overstays — rather than Mexican border crossers — have been our most major source of illegal immigration.

    People hate the term “comprehensive immigration reform” because it is often used as a euphemism for amnesty.

    But effective enforcement will in fact have to be comprehensive: border control, visa control, and employment enforcement — and we’ll probably need some changes in areas that few people are talking about, such as banking, too.

    It is remarkable that some legal businesses (e.g., marijuana-oriented concerns in states where they are permitted) have a more difficult time accessing financial services than do illegal immigrants, who are able to maintain bank accounts and take out mortgages, among other things.

    Most illegal immigrants are not children.

    They are adults and responsible for their own decisions. But as long as the promise of relatively well-paid work in the United States is enabled by a regime that can be charitably described as “lax,” it’s certain that many poor and unhappy people will risk coming to the United States and working illegally.

    There is much that we could do to improve the economic and social situations in Mexico and Latin America, and we should do all that we can — if only out of self-interest. But there are narrow limits to what we can accomplish in other countries.

    Which is why we should start with our own.

    We already give them billions. Not one more dime.

    They can "improve" their own damn countries.

    Start with sending in NATO troops to round up their gangs and put them on prison island. Then get them on birth control.

    BOOT THEM ALL OUT! DEPORT THE WHOLE FAMILY TOGETHER!

    NO LAWSUITS! NO PAPERS, NO RIGHTS, NO ENTRY TO OUR COUNTRY.

    I've been saying this for years. Nothing is going to get done on illegal immigration unless we crack down on the people who hire them. They are the magnet that lures them here. And I'm not talking about just a few raids, we need to severely increase the fines and possible jail time for these employers.

    This is the main question. Why isn't the Trump administration doing this? This is the main question that Trump and his administration should be asked.

    Exactly.

    I agree. Making it illegal for anyone who is in this country illegally, to have a bank account in this country, would go a long way in deterring them to come here by making it harder for them to function here.

    This needs to be addressed as well.

    Yes.

    I think this is the main thing we need to focus on. Does anyone know where we can find more information this? For example, what more federal prosecutors can do, and what the Trump administration can do to order this.

    We need to get as much information as possible on how all this can be implemented and then use this information to put enormous pressure on this administration to put it all in motion.

    Considering Trumps recent speeches and statements concerning the worker needs for corporations and businesses, I don't think he has any interest in making it tougher on employers. The Chamber of Commerce and other business interest now have Trump under their wing ..... or so it seems to me. I strongly agree that more violators need to spend time behind bars.
