Let me see if I understand all this...
If you cross the North Korean border illegally you get 12 years hard labor.
If you cross the Iranian border illegally you are detained indefinitely.
If you cross the Afghan border, you get shot.
If you cross the Turkish border illegally, you spend the rest of your life in prison!
But, if you cross the U.S. border illegally you get:
A driver's license
A social security card
And, free health care?
Oh well sure. That makes perfect sense.
