So word is out that illegal immigrants are going to fight deportation and attempt to clog the court system. I have an idea that I think will get rid of the problem by using existing law, and will force illegals to deport themselves.

Currently, the law is than an employer can be fined $2,000 for the first offense, and up to $10,000 for subsequent offenses, of hiring of each illegal immigrant. That includes companies who hire contractors with illegals in their employ. Fines can be even larger if RICO statutes are used for bigger  companies. So here it is: go after the source. Give an award of 50% of the fine collected for any person who provides information that an employer is hiring illegal immigrants.

If a business has hired 4 illegals, and the person who turns them in will get between $4,000 and $20,000 in reward money, legally hired employees will be lining up to turn in their bosses for a shot at the cash. Employers will know this and will stop hiring illegals. With jobs much harder to come by, many illegals will self deport.

I have seen first hand how Disney is saving millions by hiring contractors to perform services at their hotels and movie theaters. The contractors hire illegals, and are thus able to make money by paying them low (in many cases less than minimum) wages.
