    SAVE is a nice idea but it's really a band-aid. We need to stop these people from getting here in the first place. There will always be employers who will refuse to use e-verify and things of that nature. To fix the problem we need to keep these people out of the US to begin with.

    There is no one solution, however E-verify, if required for all employers would be a major deterrent to illegals.

    And unfortunately that database has many many errors.
    It isn't so simple.

    My 4-point plan, with all aspects to run concurrently:

    1. Secure the border. This includes giving the Border Patrol rules of engagement that allows them to actually secure the border instead of acting like crossing guards.
    2. Harshly punish employers who knowingly hire illegals.
    3. Deport illegals when found.
    4. Require proof of legal presence before someone may wire money out of the country, with harsh penalties for those wire agents who knowingly wire money for illegals.

    I believe the last will have a serious impact. It will also cause howls of outrage from Mexico, because they depend on money sent from illegals to prop up their failing economy. Screw 'em.

    If they're not here, e-verify isn't necessary. E-verify is a good idea but it only works with those employers who can or will be forced to use it. The contractors picking guys up in front of Home Depot every morning aren't going to be deterred by it because they're not going to use it.

    Somehow turning this country into a police state just isn't doing it for me.

    There is nothing of the police state in there.

    Unless we deport illegals and remove the attraction for coming here illegally, we're simply not serious about solving the problem.
