Should we penalize illegal immigrants for coming to the US?


My argument stands that those that have entered this country illegally should be penalized for doing so. My opponent should argue that those that are here should face no repercussions for illegal or criminal activity and be allowed to stay in the US either as they are, with citizenship, or on a path to said citizenship without any penalizing aspect. I will cede my first round and allow the opponent to open the debate....
