  •  Actually, Congress has had plenty of (0+ / 0-)

    Opportunities to make it a crime to work in the USA if you're undocumented. It has declined to do so.

    The reasons are obvious, from social to financial reasons.

    In fact the IRS gives tax identification numbers (TINs) to those who request them regardless of status and it accepts their tax returns annually.  IRS does not share any information it obtains from taxpayers for the purpose of remitting taxes and filing returns to immigration law enforcement for the purpose of enforcing immigration law.

    If people are  here, Congress has made it clear that it prefers they work. As you point out, the difficulty is getting steady reliable work without documents.

    But the crime is hiring undocumented workers.
