The Des Moines Register has this story on Rudy Guliani's solution to the illegal immigration problem facing this country.
Much of what he says I like very much, especially the parts about the SAFE card and deporting criminals. But part of the solution is notably lacking: employer penalties.
Illegal immigrants come to this country for the jobs, and employers knowingly, or with willful ignorance, hire them. Why does a leading Republican candidate not even mention the employer penalty part of the solution? To avoid offending large business backers for his campaign.
Once again the elites are selling out the common citizen.
