Penalize employers and illegal immigration will stop

October 29, 2011

Using returning troops to patrol our borders, as a recent letter writer suggested ("Put Iraq veterans to work on the U.S.-Mexico border," Oct. 26), may seem like a good idea, but if they would only be able to patrol part of it, what good would it do?

The best way to stop illegal immigrants from crossing the border get a job would be to stop hiring them. If there's no job, there's no reason to come here. Create a bigger penalty for the employers who hire them.
