This is puzzling to me...
Tucson immigration attorneys are advising clients to avoid driving or riding in cars in light of stepped-up enforcement of immigration laws across the country. Immigration attorneys are reporting an increase in the number of clients seeking help after being detained by the U.S. Border Patrol during routine traffic stops. Patricia Mejia said she receives calls every other day from clients who were detained for a traffic violation. "Some were stopped for something as minor as turning on a yellow light or swerving," she said. "Yeah, it's true, but does that mean now you deport me and my entire family? It seems extreme."The penalty for illegal entry into the United States is deportation. How is it in any way excessive to apply the appropriate penalty irrespective of what the triggering event was. Or are illegal immigrants entitled to stay here now due to their astonishing yumminess?
I kid but the truth is this is an inversion of reality. The reality is that when you come here illegally you run the risk of being deported when your status is discovered. Why should some instances of discovery be considered too harsh and others okay. Or, is it perfectly okay now to enter this country illegally? I'm pretty sure the answer to that question is a big fat no, hence the fact that there really are laws on the books regarding illegal entry.
The fact that illegal aliens consider any enforcement of the law "extreme" really shouldn't come as a shock, should it?
