    If some one crosses our borders illegally would it be considered a crime. If it is a crime is deportation too severe? If it is why do you think so?

    Try and say something with substance, please hold the retoric to a minimum.smile

      Yeah it's a crime.
      JAIL PLUS deportation is not too severe.

        (1)  If one is to be deported, why should he jailed?  Deport him straightaway.

        (2)  That illegal aliens comes to stay here illegally. What is the necessity to jail him and make him stay here as he likes otherwise?

    I think I've said my peace on this subject for today in the other threads. I do however have a hub on it as well...something about overbearing neighbors I think... If your interested. (Sneako you should include a link to the other threads)

      Me too.  I don't have a hub.  But there is a forum thread already covering this subject matter.  I don't understand the need for another one.  Makes no sense.hmm

            My Question is....


            Why should I follow the law when illegal aliens don't have to?

              Good argument...

              but they are illegal aliens and we are not.  We should follow the law.

        This one will be easier to find because the title directly relates to the subject, the others don't...The subject of Illegals came up afterwards.

    It is a crime. They should be deported and if it is not a crime why are there currently 800 INS detainees waiting for deportation living in the county jail in my neighborhood?

    No, absolutely not.

    If the law is unjust, then breaking it sn't a crime. It's an act of heroism.

      I completely agree, if a law is unjust breaking it isn't a crime.

      Protecting your boarders isn't unjust though in anyway. Disrespecting a nations laws that isn't even your nation is in no way an act of heroism.

      Case in Point: Look at Mexico's immigration laws and how they treat the Nicaraguans.

        Actually, the way the question is worded, you are absolutely right.

        Be it any country... trespassers should be prosecuted.

        Better prevent them from entering the borders... then there is no problem of how to deal with him.

      In Tamil, there is a proverb:  The sin committed on one side is called heroism on the other side.

    It's not a crime that covers as much weight as murder, but yes I have to concur with the rest.
