Should illegal immigrants receive tougher penalties for committing crimes?
Asked at Borders, 700 N.H. on January 20, 2007
“No. It should be fair across the board. They shouldn’t be penalized for being an illegal immigrant, they should penalized for the committing the crime.”
“If they are here in the states illegally, that should be addressed as well as the crime. The penalty for the crime itself should be the same.”
“I would say no. An equal punishment seems more humanitarian.”
“I think it should be the same. They shouldn’t be punished more than someone who is a citizen for doing something that is considered equally wrong.”
