Thread: Do you think it is a fair punishment?

    I have been isolated from my spouse and exiled from a place where I have lived last 12 years of life. My crime is, I violated voluntary departure and stayed illegaly so I can finish my college degree.

    Well, I'm just thinking.....did you know the consequences of violating that voluntary departure? There is something to be said about wanting to finish a college degree. I understand that part. However, if it came to a choice between your wife and finishing a college degree with the knowledge that if you violated your voluntary departure there would be a form of punishment, then the college degree should not have been THAT important.

    So, who made the decision not to obey the order of voluntary departure? Who? That's right, you. NOt INS, not anyone. And you had to have broken some other law to have been given vol departure....
    so is it fair that you have to obey the laws of the US or face the consequences? Damn right.
    This is no one else's fault but your own. If you miss your wife so much, well, who is stopping you from getting on a plane and going back to ????
    No one. Bye

    harsh as it may sound, I feel that the punishment may be warranted. You were given the oportunity to VD and your spouse could have applied for a waiver and what have you to get you back here legally after a 1-2 yr. delay (or whatever your individual circumstances were).

    You choose to ignore the order of a honorable court. I believe that this attitude is originating from the common practice in many disciplining practices (or not) in households where children get away with everything and are always being forgiven for every disobendience they commit. You'll have to sit out for changes in laws, because as far as I remember the punishment for your "crime" is permanent.
