Free bologna sandwiches are a hell of an incentive. Maybe we should switch to egg salad.

Funny how the news cycle works. What happened to the caravan? Not one word anywhere. It's as if it never happened.

Interestingly, in May of 2015, former UK PM David Cameron proposed a bill that would have confiscated the earnings of illegal workers in their country.

Quote:
The wages paid to illegal migrants working in the shadow economy will be confiscated by police as part of a fresh drive by David Cameron to push down immigration.

This is about illegal immigration, not those here legally (as used in your example). Perhaps you need to educate yourself before opening YOUR mouth.
