I’m going to go out on a limb here, and assume that if you’re here illegally, you know it. The law requires citizens to be documented, and if you’re “undocumented,” I’m also going to assume you know to be undocumented is to be illegal. Regardless of the reason, knowing you’re illegal means you’re intentionally breaking the law.
If I break the law, even unintentionally, I expect punishment. If I break the law, intentionally, I expect a harsher punishment.
Why should I expect a lesser punishment for you when you’re intentionally breaking the law? I don’t. I expect fair, and fair is expulsion from the club, for breaking club rules. The rules aren’t new. They’ve been in place for years. We finally have a government administration that is going to enforce them.
