Immigration and Rhetoric
Surprised I said that?
I've got a good reason.
As Long as a person can receive a great deal more money for their labor in any location than the one in which they currently reside they are going to move toward the money.
I'm fed up with the "stop the immigrants" political rhetoric. If there weren't jobs, they wouldn't cross borders. I don't care about the "needed stoop labor" moaning of many of our business sectors. As long as the jobs are there, people wanting a better life are going to get around any wall or patrol.
Let's take advantage of the immutable truth I've stated above. Have the government issue licenses to businesses and even private citizens who wish to hire illegal immigrants without having to pay social security or have any later stigma attached to their act.
Each license would have a monthly fee of $100 per illegal employee (quite reasonable.) The license would clearly state that the holder employer must withhold income tax from the employees paycheck and forward that money to the IRS, monthly, using the License number.
Most importantly, not having a license for each employee must carry large fines and possible criminal action. This must be stated on each license as well as being on the law books.
Anyone have a better idea?
