Immigration Policy

There have been many, many critiques of the immigration bill that John Kyl and Ted Kennedy are trying to foist off on the country. I particularly like Thomas Sowell's. Sowell argues that the bill is not designed to solve the problem of illegal immigration, but is rather designed to solve the politicians problems leaving the real problems to be dealt with by future generations. This is a popular modus operandi for politicians who would always rather be thought to be doing something useful rather actually solving a problem because that might upset someone.

I have a very simple solution to illegal immigration. Fine every employer $250,000 for each undocumented worker they employ. Very soon there would be no illegal immigration, because no one would hire them. Put the onus where it belongs, on the employers who are breaking the law.
