The CRS report featured on 12/2/05 ID appears incorrect. This is the S2R report not one on immigration legislation. Could you provide the link to the immigration
Editor's Note: Thanks to our reader for pointing out our error, it has been corrected.
I wonder why among the strict immigration enforcers, such as R. L. Ranger's letter (12/02/05 ID), nobody cheers going after the
employers. It definitely makes more sense than
spending $8 billion of my tax dollars on a mythical
fence or hiring low-skilled unmotivated workers to
chase people at the border. A waste of money on a
demagogic plan based on unproven security assumptions.
It will be more big government that does not deliver,
as we have seen in the recent past. By going after the
infringing employers the government will collect money
through fines, create economic incentives for
unauthorized worker to return to their countries and
open new positions for those with work authorizations,
all at the same time. Isn't this a win-win situation?
Perhaps they just want the scare mongering show off
but they overlook the guilt of the employer in their
communities that enslave unauthorized workers and
subject legal foreign workers to involuntary servitude
conditions through the flawed employer-dependent
