I suppose my point is that this has proven that if the jobs dry up, if we penalize the employers severely, most will just go home. On their own. No roundup necessary.

Some have kids born here who are citizens.

Either they take the kids with them or leave them with relatives, I guess.

They should not be automatic citizens, anyway. 'Anchor babies' I wonder how many of these kids there are who will be entitled to social services even if they go back to Mexico for their lives.

I'm Joe middle class, my pockets are empty from subsidizing YOUR employees. Start supporting yourself.
No need to change tax codes. Simply fine them into submission. Post rewards for anyone who leads authorities to any illegals. Post rewards for anyone who turns in landlords of illegals.
