What's being done to companies that hire illegal immigrants? What types of fines are being imposed? Are the fines just a slap on the wrist and business as usual?

Nothing to ineffective.

Megacorps who hire illegals don't bat an eyelash when they get fined $10,000 for hiring an illegal alien. Of course, how are they to know in the first place? Deny, deny, deny. E-verify, a program on its own, is only voluntary.

When they get letters from the IRS saying no match, they simply shred the letters.

I've heard some employers can be sued for hiring illegals, but how exactly do you do that?

I guess it boils down to us Americans doing Citizen's Arrests. Even if law enforcement will let them out sooner or later because ICE won't come for them to deport them. I'm thinking inconvienience can be a deterrent

Any time I see workplace enforcement taking place it's always met with the same old tired out broken record excuses of racism and xenophobia. Or maybe the other good ol' stand by: You're tearing families apart. Then we're right back to square one again. The talking heads won't shut up until amnesty is granted.......

Yes, but its hard to get a contingency lawyer to represent you. I only found one such lawsuit with Google, and I don't know what happened with it. I am currently working on exposing a rich man who hires many illegals and who is the sole owner of a large business that is the sole supplier to all 3800 Walmart stores of all books, music CD's and DVD's they sell. He is on the Board of Directors of the University of Tennessee, and well as the Country Music Association.

Sounds like you may have read the book, "Modern Bounty Hunter," which should have been called, "Reward Hunter."

Based on this book, I spent several thousand dollars investigating a Nigerian organized crime ring which went after millions of dollars in fungible commodities through fraudulent purchase orders. The FBI wouldn't give me the time of day, although several US Attorneys said they were interested. Apparently the FBI trumps the US Attorney. I guess they don't like to be overshadowed by rank civilians. I called the US Attorneys on the phone, but you apparently can't talk to them in person without an attorney.

So much for my reward hunting days.
