Trying to stop people from working isn't working. Maybe we should just punish the people handing out the work to illegals. Want to fix the immigration problem? Have sever consequences for knowingly hiring an illegal worker.

Knowingly or unknowingly, hiring, banking, renting to an illegal should virtually mean you are out of business. More of these net operation are needed to identify criminal employers. Way to go ICE, not fine the C out of them.

Sorry, don't belittle the chickens in some ways they are smarter than SOME Americans.

About time. We can have all Americans back to full employment by the end of March 2013 if Congress would manadate E-verify in January 2013.

With 8-Million "undocumented immigrants" working jobs it's pretty easy to see why une mployment for Amercians is so high.

Unemployment is up because Americans don't want to do the work that the illegals do. If they were to do that type of work then unemployment would go down. It's just like the college kids that have just graduated they don't want to work for a measly 30,000 a year they want to start out at 80,000+ a year. No one wants to do the dirty jobs anymore.

I used to make $10/hr working at an industrial egg farm back in the 1980's but that was before the Federal Government flooded the US labor pool with legal and illegal immigrants.
