Letter: Governors deserve prison


Smuggling or transporting illegal immigrants not for profit is a serious federal crime punishable by five years in prison, and if for profit, the penalty is 10 years. Therefore, Govs. Ducey of Arizona, Abbot of Texas, and DeSantis of Florida, each guilty of transporting migrants to other states without permit and in secret (smuggling), should be so charged and imprisoned. Since each is doing it to promote their own political careers (profit) and save money (also profit), and have publicly acknowledged their crimes, they should be guests of the government for 10 years.
