it is a felony to "aid and abett" criminals.

instead of just withholding benefits, the authorities should enforce the current law and IMPRISON the employers who knowingly hire illegals.

and then, to rub it in, they should FINE them too. and let's not make it a nominal sum just so they understand the law.

Companies that hire illegals, along with their CEOs, CFOs, and human resources manager should all face huge fines and jail/prison time. Nothing less is acceptable.

I hope they attach to this that use of subcontractors for hiring won't shield them from prosecution, fines, imprisonment and asset seizures.
