    We can't do anything about the problem of illegal immigration without addressing the root causes.  One of them is our dirty secret.  Employers want them here for cheap labor, and we let the employers slide.
     
    Comprehensive immigration reform must include stiffer penalties for companies that continue to employ illegals not on the path to citizenship (or whatever is hashed out) -- and they must be enforced.

    As for the rest, see above...  

    Thanks.

      If this was really about making illegals go away, the teabaggers would demand the arrest of corporate executives for their crucial role in the problem.

      This law was never meant to solve illegal immigration.  It was designed entirely to make targets out of Latino citizens so they would retaliate, which would then allow the Right to tell whites "They're all a threat!  They'll outnumber us at the polls!"  Then comes the escalation to South Africa 1948.
