Well, you would be wrong. Check out this alarming feature from today's Houston Chronicle.
The sheriff of Harris County, where Houston sits, Tommy Thomas, explained that, "in a perfect world, I'd like to see our borders secured to where we have someone we find to be here illegally, we turn them over to [Immigration and Customs Enforcement] and have them deported. But that's not something that's happening at this day and time."
It sure ought to be happening at this day and time. It doesn't seem too much to ask that if someone's here illegally and gets caught they should be on a fast plane or slow boat home - as soon as possible.
