Stopping Illegal Immigration the Intelligent Way

Audit flags potential fake worker documents.
ICE spokeswoman Virginia Kice in Seattle said the department has stepped up I-9 audits under the Obama administration. Nationwide, ICE has conducted more than 3,500 such audits since 2009, compared to a combined 757 in 2007 and 2008.

"If we create a workplace where unauthorized workers are unable to get a job, it reduces the employment magnet that encourages people to come to the country illegally," Kice said.
I honestly don't have much of a problem with illegal immigrants, although I expect them to take the punishment without complaint if they are caught. But it's sure much nicer to live in a country that decreases the reasons for people to come and try to work illegally instead of violent raids that tear families apart.
