When someone breaks the law coming into the country, gets found (usually committing a new crime), gets deported, then comes back in and commits yet another crime, something needs to be done to deter this behavior. Current laws are not deterring the bad behavior, hopefully tougher sentences will. If you are not committing crime, you don’t have to worry about. If you are a criminal, maybe the threat of a few extra years in the pen will help you think about why you are here. Are you looking to benefit the country you are living in, or are you here to hurt those who are trying make a life here.
