Illegal entry into the U.S. is a FELONY. The first entry is a misdemeanor. After that, all felonies. Why do people lie and say it isn't?



People keep calling it a "civil violation" and pretend there is no violence involved. Tell that to border patrol agents.


Update 2:


"Illegal Immigration is a Crime. Each year the Border Patrol apprehends hundreds of thousands of aliens who flagrantly violate our nation's laws by unlawfully crossing U.S. borders. Such illegal entry is a misdemeanor, and, if repeated after being deported, becomes punishable as a felony."


Update 3:


"Any alien who

(1) enters or attempts to enter the United States at any time or place other than as designated by immigration officers, or

(2) eludes examination or inspection by immigration officers, or

(3) attempts to enter or obtains entry to the United States by a willfully false or misleading representation or the willful concealment of a material fact, shall, for the first commission of any such offense, be fined under title 18 or imprisoned not more than 6 months, or both, and, for

Update 4:

for a subsequent commission of any such offense, be fined under title 18, or imprisoned not more than 2 years, or both."



a crime, typically one involving violence, regarded as more serious than a misdemeanor, and usually punishable by imprisonment for more than one year or by death.
