Illegal immigrants 

Seems the number of illegals entering this country keeps increasing. I just finished the book Reefer Madness, by Eric Schlosser, which discussed immigrants for about a third of the book. One of his bigger concerns is their treatment, or more accurately, their mistreatment. One of his proposed solutions (which makes sense to me) is to make the employers pay for employing illegals, instead of dumping most of the blame on the illegals. If you make the employers shoulder the blame, they will be more hesitant to hire the illegals. This may help slow the tide crossing the border, and will hopefully reduce the number of people who die or are killed while trying to make it to the US.
