Posted by Damozel | If the goal is to keep out illegal aliens, the clearest path to preventing an increase in the number would seem to be punishing those who induce them to come here, right? If zero tolerance is the policy, shouldn't it start first at home? So I'd say that this news comes under the category 'high time.' If illegal aliens are a problem, and that is certainly the case, it seems that the solution is to make American employers stop dangling that big slice of the American pie in front of them.
In fact, why not throw the people who do the hiring in jail or at least make them do community service? It seems that the Department of Homeland Security is finally---and belatedly---deciding to do exactly that.
