Harris Miller on Immigration
MILLER: Yes, in fact, I worked with Congress when that was proposed in 1981. We also need to have very tough employer sanctions, including sending employers to jail if they continue to hire people who are not here without work authorization. That's why people come to this country illegal, to get jobs. Unless we penalize the employers, people are going to continue to come.
Q: Mr. Webb, do you agree?
WEBB: I would agree that we should be using tamper-proof ID cards.
Q: Do you believe in punishing employers who hire people illegally?
WEBB: That is very a complex question because of the whole range of employers that are involved. Certainly large employers you could have sanctions. It's a question of accountability. When somebody is hiring somebody to mow a lawn or something like that, it's a lot different than a Wal-Mart of a Tyson's.
