This Sure Will Keep Others From Coming Here

The New York Sun reports that an illegal immigrant from Mexico has won a $4 million settlement for an injury on a job that he should not have had in the first place. Link.
The 33-year-old immigrant was hospitalized for three months, at a loss about how to support his three children and wife, who live with him at the Bronx. Living in this country illegally and working off the books, he considered a lawsuit against his employer only after his brother visited an advocacy group in the city on his behalf, the injured worker said yesterday.

How many hundreds of years would he have had to work in the US to receive $4 million? How many thousands of years in Mexico? This does not qualify as something that will discourage other illegals from swimming over the Rio Grande.
