The debate in the US over illegal immigration, I have to admit, is something that kind of amazes me. It amazes me that there even IS a debate. Again, Liberals, do you even travel?
I am not aware of any other country in the world — outside of the West — where there is the slightest tolerance for foreigners over-staying their visas, much less entering the country illegally. If you are caught, you will be immediately detained and deported. That is standard practice across the globe. No questions asked, no quarter given.
