It is getting irritating to me (and some others, I imagine) to keep hearing about Serge Babo’s punishment for being in the country illegally (“Ridgeley man loses battle to stay in country,” Aug. 20 Times-News, Page 1A).
He broke the law, had an opportunity to try and rectify the problem earlier and ignored the opportunity. His punishment does fit the crime. He was in this country illegally and subject to deportation as any other illegal alien.
The government has spent millions in the last couple of years to fight people coming into this country or being here illegally, and you think this person should get special consideration just because he had a job and family here? I don’t.
He brought this situation upon himself and now has to accept the punishment. And also he was holding a job that a legal citizen could’ve held, especially in this bad economy and high rate of unemployment.
