Ben Carson on Illegals: ‘Remove the Goodies,’ Charge Employers Who Hire Illegals (Video)

“And one of the most important parts of that are the employers,” he said. “As far as I’m concerned, the second offense, if you hire someone who’s not here legally, should be a criminal offense – and they should be treated as such. Absolutely.”

Currently, employers who hire illegal immigrants can face a variety of fines, ranging from $200 to $2,000 per illegal worker on a first offense, and $2000-$5000 on a second offense. For a third offense or more, the fines can range from $3,000 to $10,000 per employee.
