Our nation is being over run by illegal immigrants and costing us a fortune. A lot of people have tried to solve the problem by creating or enforcing laws targeting illegal immigrants. But, this is not effective. 

In May of 2011 the US Supreme Court upheld an Arizona law that imposes harsh penalties on businesses that hire illegal immigrants. See: http://ow.ly/bP67D

The 5-to-3 decision amounted to a green light for vigorous state efforts to combat the employment of illegal workers and requiring employers to enroll in the federal E-Verify worker identification program. The E-Verify program is already set up and working: http://ow.ly/bP6ke 

No additional funds would be required to build or manage it. So why aren't we using it?!?

Not a single state has enacted a law mandating E-Verify for any new employers! We demand that the US Congress pass a law requiring E-Verification of all people who wish to work in the United States. Let's stop going after the illegal immigrants and enforce the laws that already exist! Let's force employers to verify that the people they are hiring are eligible to work in the United States.

To solve the problem, we need to GO AFTER THE PEOPLE WHO EMPLOY ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS.
