Solution to Illegal Immigration, part 2

Apparently, my idea was already the law -- even the amount of $5000. In fact, second offenses were $10,000, and all subsequent offenses $25,000. Apparently, that wasn't doing the job.

Congress, in H.R. 4437, just recently approved raising these amounts to $7500, $15,000 and $40,000. They allow a first-time-only penalty exemption for good-faith violations. By the way, my representative, Lois Capps, voted against this raise. Unbelieveable. Just who does she represent by voting 'no'?

So now I'm stumped. How can employers possibly continue hiring illegal immigrants? Are there THAT many employers that aren't getting caught doing so? To me, that seems to be a national scandal -- that our auditing programs aren't strong enough to catch these employers who are breaking the law.
