Lately i see a lot of questions where people ask if they would be fine travelling from one city to another while they are illegal residents in a country. On the face value the act they are asking for is legal and there is no harm when people say oh nobody is going to scan your visas on a domestic flight.
But then, those people are residing there illegally and it doesn't feel right, at least to me, to say yeah everything's good just go ahead. I am not a lawyer and this is not a law forum, however i feel it is a bit odd to try to help answer such questions.
I know that some people will say that being out of status does not mean being illegal necessarily, that is true but i am not talking about such situations. I am talking about questions where the OP clearly states that they are in the country illegally.
Should we just look at those questions on their face value and ignore the broader picture?
Example 1: Can I fly from NY to Las Vegas if I’m out of status?
Example 2: How do passport/ID checks work on trains within the Schengen area?
