Hold employers accountable with foreign hires

Instead of a $10 billion wall, hold company owners who hire “illegal workers” responsible. Currently, President Trump wants to use $8.6 billion to “build a wall.” However, there is the most simplest solution that no one has thought of because it is such common sense (a trait no longer found in “America”).

Legislators can now just pass a bill that will:

1. Fine company owners (Republican or Democrat) $1 million if found guilty of hiring anyone without proper identification.

2. Imprison company owners for one year if they are found guilty of hiring an employee without checking and insuring proper identification.

Of course companies will have to begin “sharing the wealth” with employees, raising wages to a living wage — that will get the “lazy non-immigrants” off their couch.

With all the profits companies have attained from hiring “modern-day slaves” at minimum wages, it will be good redemption for those wealthy business owners — and maybe then they can “get into Heaven!”

And anyway, it is common knowledge that in big business and construction, the rip-offs that occur with overinflated prices for 2-by-4s puts lots of free cash into unscrupulous hands, so building a wall isn’t in the best interest for anyone who pays taxes.
