    Nice step in the right direction. From your Link.

    The Supreme Court decided 5-to-3 that states can punish employers who violate a mandatory E-Verify law. The court challenge was led by the U.S. Chamber of Congress against Arizona's 2007 law that suspends a business's license if they don't use E-Verify to check the eligibility of all new hires.

    Supreme Court Upholds E-Verify | NumbersUSA - For Lower Immigration Levels

    During the creation of the Basic Pilot Program, which is now known as E-Verify, Congress gave authority to the states to use its business licensing practices as penalty for companies that hire illegal workers. The Court used that clause in its majority opinion.

    Arizona’s procedures simply implement the sanctions that Congress expressly allowed the States to pursue through licensing laws. Given that Congress specifically preserved such authority for the States, it stands to reason that Congress did not intend to prevent the States from using appropriate tools to exercise that authority. . . .

    Because we conclude that the State’s licensing provisions fall squarely within the federal statute’s savings clause and that the Arizona regulation does not otherwise conflict with federal law, we hold that the Arizona law is not preempted.

    -- Chief Justice Roberts wrote in the majority opinion.

    Encouraging Bad behavior shouldn't be rewarded, it is more a matter of principle. That same principle should hold the Authorities themselves responsible when Forged Documents are used to skirt the system. Employers should not be held responsible for what is beyond their ability to control. If they follow the rules, and there is foul play, their liability should be limited, to what part they played in the foul. That said, they have a responsibility to report suspicions and inconsistencies.

    What about employers paying cash? You are not going to stop Illegal Immigration and to stop Immigration in general will give the USA a competitive disadvantage by not being able to attract top talent to the country, them staying in their own country making their countries better while ours get worse.
