If illegal immigrants must pay a legal price, what about their employers?


An argument almost always presented by proponents of President Trump’s harsh anti-immigration policies is that by entering the country without a visa, or overstaying a visa, undocumented immigrants have broken the law and must pay a price. How about their employers? By hiring them, they also broke the law. Are they asked to pay a price, too? No. But they will too, once when their employees are gone.
