The idea to check out employers and punish them has been kicked around, in fact it has been done for years but the punishment is too easy.
Jail, shutting them down would be more realistic, as well as fines.
This would take away the incentives for both employers and illegals.
Also this wouldn't be so borderline in regard to discrimination.
See, common ground
Pay attention and you'll see that liberals, not conservatives, are all about saving American jobs. A lot of us libs have been arguing for these types of changes, but they don't resonate on mainstream media for a couple of reasons:
1. fines aren't sexy and don't make for good TV, not like the hysteria driven riots. Like you've shown, high school punks can get a camera, pick a fight, film it, edit it, post it on YouTube, and Fox will air it for them.
2. mainstream media is corporate media, and corporations are behind the border debacle in first place
Not surprisingly, I watch (GE owned) MSNBC. In all the years that I've tuned in, not once have I seen them interview a liberal who promotes sanctions against business owners. They are out there, and they know who they are. Sadly, they're all about racism and riots, too.
