Immigration solution?

Given our general dislike of lawyers and litigation, I imagine a few of you guys may disagree with this, but here goes . . .

If you really want to stop illegal immigration, you need to address all the employers who break the law and hire illegals.  No jobs=no illegal immigration (granted that’s somewhat simplified).  I would suggest creating a private cause of action against businesses that employee illegal aliens.  Allow for the recovery of attorney’s fees for the successful prosecution of the case.

We’d have to tinker with it a bit to guard against abuse to ensure only the law breaking employers are targeted.  As a somewhat self loathing conservative minded trial lawyer, maybe we this would allow my profession to do something constructive on this issue at least.
