Proposed bill would increase penalties for illegal immigrants convicted of a crime

According to the Miami Herald, a bill currently under review by the Florida Legislature would increase the penalties on immigrants illegally in the United States. But the bill also raises the question of the constitutional rights of undocumented immigrants. Even though due process is a constitutional right, recent court decisions make it unclear whether illegal immigrants would have the same rights as citizens.
