    The penalties are laid out. If you break a law knowing the penalty dont cry later because it got imposed. The simple solution would be not to break the law then you dont really have to worry about the punishment. My only issue with the 15 years is that if we imprison them for 15 years, thats 15 more years they are going to be living off of our tax dollars.

    My guess is that most Illegal immigrants consider the risk of 15 years in prison to be less of a punishment than still living in squalor in their countries of origin.

    I agree with this law and I think we should be doing more.

    See, I support this because it should never be federal law to begin with. I believe that the State's should be the masters of their own residency laws. We don't need a nanny state telling us who can or cannot be our neighbors.

    I think immigration SHOULD be a federal policy. It would be tough for say...Michigan to create its own immigration laws without affecting the other states. However...I dont see where people are up in arms about the states contributing to fighting illegal immigration...especially when the federal government spent billions of dollars in training states on how to enforce federal immigration laws.

    Liberals scoff at this law, and yet it's still the softest immigration law in the world.

    People are not up in arms..........Presidien IWon and Eric Holder and La Raza are the ones who get up in arms about it.......................Look for a DoJ lawsuit against Georgia in the near future to strike this down

    Maybe the states should adopt Mexicos anti immigration policies.

    Borders of countries should be federal, borders of states should be controlled by the states.
