c. Impose no direct burden on the employer. Instead, it triggers an investigation and the employer is not directly aware of it. A detective will come and interview the suspicious employee. If they turn out to not be a citizen, well, they get first notified in writing that they have been found not to be a citizen and they have 90 days or so to either produce evidence proving they are, or they can sign up for the transportation back to their home country.

Failing to comply in 90 days, that would be when jails get used.
How many freaken Federal 'detectives" do you think the Govt has?

Trust me, this wouldnt work.
