The president called a proposal under consideration in the Senate ``an important compromise.'' The legislation, crafted by Republican Senator Arlen Specter of Pennsylvania, would strengthen border security and create a guest worker program. It also has the support of most Democrats.
"It is difficult to hold an employer to account,'' Bush said.
Businesses have been generally supportive of Bush's immigration plan. Jerry Howard, chief executive of the National Association of Home Builders, said business owners can't be expected to detect forgeries and face stiff penalties if they fail.
"To try to make small businesspeople law enforcement officers is really the wrong way to go,'' Howard said in a telephone interview from Washington.
But if a small business messes up on sales tax or can't produce receipts for an IRS audit or doesn't keep proper track of workers comp ducumentation, the government has no problem fining them to death. What a crock! I'd gladly keep track of worker documentation, but the first step is not providing a regular drivers license to anyone who asks for one - that's rediculous and makes illegals indistinguishable from citizens. If they want a license, they should have a special one that shows what their status is.
