If California would collect a 10K fine from employers
for every illegal working, their state financial problems would soon be over.
With no jobs for illegals there would be less of a reason for them to be there at all.
Fine The Employer. That is the answer to the immigration problem.

I work in the construction industry.
The Mexicans are taking over, I dont care what this study shows.
Like a company that hires illegally is going to put that information out there anyway.
La migra(spelling?) shows up and you have never seen a scramble like that..lol

California is #1 in agriculture and agriculture exports. It's big busine$$.
No fat cat will want to get rid of their cheap labor.
I live in CA and this FACT above is the elephant in the room. Never mind that NO ONE ELSE wants to do the fruit & vegetable picking in the hot sun for hours a day. Go ahead, send them all back...LEGAL AND ILLEGAL and see which hard working Americans are lining up to get their jobs.
It's laughable that people think there is a problem here with this...take them away, then you got problems...starting with the skyrocketing price of produce all over the country.

What? You think there won't be another illegal waiting for his chance? Another employer who will hire him for cheap labor? As long as employers will give them a job, they will come.
What this article is about is expanding the voter base and collecting money. It has finally dawned on the Repubs that their old white voter base is dying out. And of course the democrats already figured that out. I am not sure what the corps are up to, but it has to be about money. Legal cheap labor I suppose.
