A friend of mine posted the following 'meme poster' on Facebook about the legal consequences of criminal acts under the Immigration bill now before the Senate. S.744.

(((ADDENDUM: This chart was released June 21 by the Federation for American Immigration Reform, a nonprofit organization that opposes liberalization of immigration law, compares the consequences for an array of crimes and discovered that while illegal immigrants might be exonerated and legalized, U.S. citizens and legal immigrants face years of incarceration or temporary expulsion from the country.)))

The poster reads as follows:


This poster is bullshit. IT IS A LIE. It conflates the immigration consequences of lawbreaking with criminal consequences, and therefore produces radical falsehood.  It is not true.

A corrected version is to be found below.
