    about the devil being in the details.  Penalties do need to shift from those seeking employment to the employers.  Make them penalties with teeth.

    The way to combat noxious ideas is with other ideas. The way to combat falsehoods is with truth. - William O. Douglas

    •  It goes deeper than that (0+ / 0-)

      To some immigration reform looks like holding employers accountable and showing some compassion towards those who have been victimized by those employers and the human traffickers who brought them here with empty promises while to others it looks like rounding up every single immigrant regardless of their documentation status and sending them all back to their countries of origin while simultaneously building a wall around the US.

      The numbers will drop once reform is defined.
