    should an imigrant be sent back to their homeland if they commit a crime in the country they...

    migrated to?i hate when people move here from other countries, get citizenship and commit crimes. i personally believe they should lose their citizenship and be deported if they have had citizenship for 5 years or less.

    I think it depends on the crime. If they commit a minor violation, they should not be sent back. For a serious misdemeanor or a felony, they should be sent back to their home country.

    I believe they should be deported to even worse countries. You immigrated from Mexico, commit a crime, you get sent to Colombia. That'll teach 'em. smile

    As an immigrant I can tell you that for the first four years in Canada as a landed immigrant, any crime committed on my part would have meant that I would not be able to receive a Canadian citizenship. I also know from past experience of people deported due to crimes committed. Thus, that is the case for landed immigrants.
    Otherwise, what most people fail to realize is that everyone except the Native Americans (in North America), are immigrants and/or come from immigrant families.

    Generally yes, but I think I would draw the line at misdemeanors. I don't want a citizen sent back for Jay walking. Now, a non-citizen, that's a different story. Simply identifying them should be enough to send them home.

    Jillian Barclay; yes i do believe in conditional citizenship, 100 %. what gives a person the right to move to any country, use that countries resourses and commit crimes but still be allowed to stay. by letting people do as they please, it sends a message that the country is a push-over and that they have no respect for the people of that nation. how you can think this is wrong is beyond me but since this is only an opinion, to each their own. if i had it my way, canada would have extremely strict laws regarding imigration without tolerance for people who seem to think that by using the arguement that if sent back to their homeland they will be in danger. well if you want canada's protection and freedoms, it comes with a price and that price is respect.

    Personally, I think that if you decide to live in any country, you must abide by the laws and acclimate as best you can to it's society.

    I am not an advocate for immigrants, legal or illegal. However, I do believe that once you are sworn in as an American citizen you should not be subject to deportation. You are, of course, subject to the laws that apply to natural born citizens, including everything from fines to imprisonment to the death penalty where it is allowed. Up until the time you are sworn in, however, you should be subject to deportation for any crime, no matter how minor. This goes whether you are here legally or illegally. We have enough unsavory US citizens. We do not need or want those from other countries who contribute to the criminal element.
