For the employer, the UK has a civil penalty of up to $25,000 (£20,000) per unauthorised employee. If criminal charges are brought, then there's up to five years prison time plus unlimited fines. illegal employees are deported.
If one employer can hire a foreign laborer, but another industry, or even another employer, cannot how does that not violate the 14th Amendment?
Are you suggesting that we become slaves to statutory law? If so, there would have been no America, no Rosa Parks, and no individual Right to keep and bear Arms... plus a lot of other important things that happened because the people reclaimed a Right they already had.
Up to a $10K fine and 10 years in prison for each illegal employed is pretty stiff punishment. How do you punish an employer who's been duped by fake/stolen identification? If stiff penalties aren't dissuading violators, then we must expect the federal government to physically catch them...there are over 25 million businesses in the US.
Here's a better idea. Instead of misplacing blame on capitalism (because that's basically what this is) why don't we stiffen up border security infrastructure and actually enforce immigration laws to the letter....you know, clamp down, versus putting out the Welcome Mat with inviting/forgiving rhetoric and sanctuary cities that make illegals feel more secure in the knowledge that if they can get here, they can stay here?

Expecting businesses to abide and enforce immigration laws for a federal government that, until recently, has not been particularly interested in doing is rather disingenuous. It's cynical and politically expedient misplaced blame. We can't very well place the lionshare of the illegal immigration problem on businesses...on capitalism, really... when we have leftists at the highest level of government actively luring them here with their crocodile tears, amnesty rhetoric, Dream Acts and sanctuary cities.
