Soooo many Visa's 6 H types alone. Student, Worker various class/levels, Tourist, Medical...
No other country is this lax.
I would like to see production types stay, however these laws are enforced in every other country and people on the US Visa can always (90% of the time) obtain legal extention of time. They knew they were taking a risk when ignoring the status of their stay.
What a dilema. Yes, blame congress but also who was it that took advantage of the generous over sight?
I wouldn't dare chance it in any country.
This story is about someone whom began their own business it sounds like. So it is more than a congressional blame game. Obvious ommissions have to be a factor to consider. If a business man takes this risk with ommissions can he be trusted with the business he solicts?
Curious for your thoughts....

"One example is a 38-year-old computer engineer who overstayed his visa after arriving from Colombia in 1999. Not long after, he founded a Web design firm in Miami that specializes in e-commerce."

Everything this guy does is internet based. Are we supposed to believe he is incapable of conducting an internet based business from his home country of Columbia??? He knew when he started his business that he was in violation of federal law, and was perfectly willing, if not eager, to continue in violation of law. If anyone is willing to violate a federal law, there is reason to believe they will have no qualms about violating other laws. He deserves no sympathy for his flagrant violations, and deserves no rewards or special considerations. Cheaters should not and do not "win", and our governance should not establish any precedents that enable cheaters to "win". Letting this guy stay, or any of the other 12 million illegal aliens, is the equivalent of letting bank robbers keep the money they stole.
