Near the bottom of an article which details a list of accused lawbreakers comes this nugget:
Ismael Morales-Montero, 28, has pleaded not guilty to an indictment charging him with possession of a fraudulent immigration document and use of an immigration document not lawfully issued. If convicted of both charges, Morales-Montero faces up to 15 years in prison.
Come here to the United States without permission (or overstay your permission, as the case may be). Lie about your status–but make it an official lie with paperwork–and if we find you guilty, you can stay here for up to 15 years. Granted, your movement will be restricted, but all expenses are on us.
Can we not see what we are doing to ourselves?
