Raising the minimum wage sharply would very likely be a terrific way to enforce immigration laws.


Many of the jobs illegals have worked would be destroyed, and if they were preserved they would be attractive for legal workers. Legal workers would start insisting that illegals be fired, and call in immigration and wage enforcement worked to see that laws are enforced.

We might well see millions of illegal immigrants become unemployable and return to Mexico, Latin QAmerica or where ever.
