Let’s see if I got this right…if you cross the North Korean border illegally, you get 12 years hard labor.

If you cross the Iranian border illegally, you will be detained indefinitely, and no phone call request will be granted.

If you cross the Saudi Arabian border illegally, you will be sent immediately to jail.

If you cross the Chinese border illegally, you may never be heard from again.

If you cross the Venezuelan border illegally, you will be branded a spy and your fate will be sealed.

If you cross the Cuban border illegally, you will be thrown into political prison to rot….I know, I know, wait for it…But

If you cross the United States border illegally, you get:

 A job  A drivers license  A social security card  Welfare, complete with food stamps and Medicaid OR  SSI or SSD (social security disability benefits) for prior existing disability BEFORE crossing the U.S. border  Credit cards  Subsidized rent OR a loan to buy a house  Free education  Free health care  A lobbyist in Washington to advocate for you…you poor thing  Public documents printed in YOUR language…God Bless You  The right to carry your country’s flag while you protest that you want AND demand respect  To vote  WIC for your unborn babies that you slyly planned to be born on American soil, because after all, you get to stay because your baby was born in America.

I just wanted to make sure that I had a firm grasp on the situation.
