How big is the fine for a company who employs illegal immigrants?

And where do I call it in if I know a company who does that instead of hiring legal citizen/immigrants?

Update:

couple hundret $$??? Well, maybe we should get started there. If the fine is high enough, companies will hopefully hesitate to hire an illegal immigrant.

Update 2:

@bobby>that is the idea - to get the jobs back w/o building an expensive fence from tax money which is needed in schools and health care and and and...

Update 3:

@carnage>I could laugh my a** of about this articel "We are tough, and we are going to be even tougher," Homeland Security spokesman Russ Knocke said. " WHAT TOUGH ACTION DID THEY DO ALL OVER THE YEARS???

    The fine paid won't be as bad as the trouble that follows.I think it will be a very big hassle to hire illegals . A San Diego bakery owner was charged with 14 counts of felonies each count $250.000 + 5 years in prison.

    One thing they should not get the SOCIAL security money and Federal Tax's back after finding they some how had Illegals working for them. They Should get a 1 % Tax hike for each illegal they knowing hired paid to the Federal and State Governments 1 to 7 years based on the Level of the CRIME.

    Between $250 and $10,000 per employee, depending on the circumstances (more money if there are prior offenses and some latitude for judges to make a determination based on factors such as whether or not they were trying to comply with the regulations).

    There can also be a probationary period of up to 3 years.

    Call the US Attorney's Office in the appropriate district to file such a report.

    There are also different requirements in terms of verification for individuals as opposed to large employers and the use of false identification is a separate crime. Working without permission is not it's own federal crime as long as you don't lie to your employer.
