Jobs and free benefits entice most to come to the US. If both are eliminated, it removes the incentive for immigrants to come illegally. They would be far more inclined to apply to come legally if they understood that they would be incapable of supporting themselves or their families unless they came legally and obtained a green card.

We currently hold only the illegal immigrants responsible for working illegally (or more often, no one at all). But in view of all the inticements to come illegally, it's hardly surprising that they accept the invitation. We must end all benefits and all potential employment opportunities if we are to decrease the flow of illegal immigrants across the border.

We should be Americans for Americans. If businesses don't want to abide by the laws then they should be placed out of business on American soil, with no prospects of being a business owner ever again. They are no less illegal than the illegal aliens. Laws should be tough to take care of these business owners. Make everyone responsible for their actions. This includes small ag businesses to the big corporate businesses. It's another way of "making America great again."

Employers who purposefully employ undocumented workers should have ramifications. However, with the new identifications we are seeing, at least in the agricultural field, the ID's look authentic. Employers are not trained to what is correct or not, not provided a tool to be able to determine if the ID is legitimate. If e-verify is available and provides immediate results that would help, but you can not have it check thru that system until after they are hired, and they must be provided 30 days in which to correct their information. For an employer to not hire based on the ID doesn't look right is discrimination according to the law and can be sued. We must stand up for the business owner to be provided the appropriate tools.

At the same time, businesses should have incentives to employ US citizens who are: veterans, individuals with disabilities, and/or individuals from high poverty backgrounds.

Yes, both the illegal and the employer is breaking the law, so both should bear the burden. We weaken our Rule of Law if we do not apply it across the board. We cannot pick and chose which laws we will apply and which we will not apply.
