- Let's both put the unemployed to work and get some assistance with moving Pedro back to the proper side of the border.
Use the bounty hunters. Offer bonuses if they catch an illegal who also has an arrest warrant against them.
- Use deputized assistants to grab the illegals. Keep them on bologna diets for a few weeks, then ship them to the border. I feel confident that there are enough unemployed Americans (use retirees for recon, paperwork, and logistics work and save the strong-arm types for the actual muscle jobs) to make a serious dent in the numbers.
- Mandate use of the Social Security number verification system. If an employer knowingly hires illegals (more than 1/4 of the labor force should be considered prima faci evidence of collusion), here's an idea - also deport the person responsible - without a passport! You like those people so much, you live with them - in their country!
- Disallow deductions for illegals as an expense on the income tax. Make companies pay BOTH parts of FICA for any employee they hire that turns out to be "off-the-books". Also, the company pays the back Worker's Comp, Unemployment Insurance, etc., plus penalties.
I think it's pretty clear that the whole Federal government, from the House and Senate, to the Executive branch, to the Judicials, lack any pretense to having cojones. So, let's not depend on them. Let's do a Joe Arpaio - use the existing regs and statutes, interpreted OUR way, to do the job others are too chicken to do.
