Visa overstays are the main source of illegal immigration into the U.S. and it’s important to ensure that there is a deterrent and punishment for this form of illegal entry into the country.
The punishments imposed by this bill are unnecessarily harsh, especially given that many visa overstayers eventually leave the U.S. of their own accord without the threat of punishment.
