If they just enforced the immigration laws already on the books we wouldn't have 10-14 million illegals here now.

The most honest solution to this problem is stiffening and enforcing laws against hiring illegal immigrants. Empower local sheriffs and police to charge any employer who doesn't have a copy of birth certificate or green card for every employer, and let the feds round up the forgers of them. I'm thinking $3000-$10,000 per employee and $10,000-$50,000, plus jail for forging a green card. It is the obvious solution that no politician will mention. Also, offer generous rewards for any citizen whose testimony convicts offenders.
This would impact the economy for a while, and would run some small companies out of business, and I'm sure other measures would be needed to prevent corruption of the system. But, it's simple and honest and would create job opportunities for people who have run out of unemployment insurance, or were booted off welfare, and kids.
I can't see you, so I'll have to take your word for it: did you type that with a straight face?

Documented workers always cost more than undocumented workers, you also have to treat them better. I completely agree that a large guest worker program can and should be part of the solution. I'm just fairly convinced that those who pull the strings of the people in power don't want a real solution because they like things the way they are.

If the Federal government is smart, then they will get on the immigration overhaul NOW. A Constitutional Convention called by the States would and should be one of the worst nightmares of the Fed. Many of the States are tired of the crap from D.C. and are ripe for the citizens to force the State Legislatures to call for a Constitutional Convention. Once that mess was over, D.C. would be nothing but a picked over skeleton of its former self.
