    Well there isn’t much of a question.

    Laws are made by men. They can be changed by men. At one time, it was illegal to sell liquor in the US. At one time, it was illegal to drive over 55 mph in most states. Are you saying we should never change a law that isn't working?

    Oddly enough, invading the wrong country over a lie and getting 8,000 Soldiers killed for nothing is no crime whatsoever.

    Two-thirds of those who joined the undocumented population did so by entering with a valid visa and then overstaying their period of admission.

    So how exactly would Trumps border wall change that?

    It wouldn't.

    You misread or can't comprehend.

    (a) Improper time or place; avoidance of examination or inspection; misrepresentation and concealment of facts

    --If someone is trying to misrepresent, avoid questioning, or lying - that's the crime. The person isn't.

    Any alien who ...(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,

    -If someone trying to get in has false papers or hiding - that's the crime. The person isn't.

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

    -and then they would be charged with whatever crime as above, but NOT because they tried to get in.

    You're forgetting those who are trying to come in because of asylum, have paperwork. "Mr. Biblical" Sessions is trying to stop if god forbid you're a woman and you allowed yourself to get raped or beat up or heaven forbid trying to get away from a gang.

    They are supposed to be represented by lawyers. This isn't happening. If caught at the border, they're supposed to be turned back. This isn't happening. Instead, kids are being taken from their parents, both parties get incarcerated and are stuck in the system for months.

    TRUMP is violating the law.

    Nearly a 100 years of law has rightfully distinguished between immigration violations and criminal violations. The term "undocumented" immigrant is a way of designating -- through Rep and Dem policies -- that the status of a migrant is not related to crime.

    Different laws, jurisprudence and courts have been established recognizing this distinction. Undocumented immigrants can commit crimes (robbery, murder) but they are put through the criminal justice system for that reason.

    "Illegal" is not recognized in law as a status, so those promoting this argument are actually the ones inconsistent with the law and practice.

    Constitution reading:

    The Fifth and 14th amendments say “no person” can be “deprived of life, liberty or property without due process of law.”

    (The 14th Amendment adds “no person” can be denied “equal protection under the law.” The wording — referring to “no person” rather than “no citizen” — means that the cause applies to those who don’t have full rights as Americans.)

    ----

    Soo, if they're subject to deportation,then why are they incarcerated, AJ? If someone is here illegally - you deport them. We're throwing them in jail whether they've committed a crime or not, whether they have papers, it doesn't matter.

    From your article: You don't go to jail or receive any other criminal punishment for being in the country illegally — you get deported."

    Keyword below: improperly.

    For instance, an undocumented immigrant who entered the United States improperly would have committed a crime. However, once that person is here, the simple act of being in the United States unlawfully is not by itself a crime.

    "It is a crime to cross the border other than as designated by immigration officials, but there is no separate crime for being unlawfully present in the United States," Chin said.

    Another example of illegal entry would be if an individual is found in the United States after previously having been deported.

    "Unlawful re-entry after a deportation order can be a federal crime, depending on circumstances," Taylor said.

    There ARE reasons an undocumented citizen can be here, but that means squat to this administration:

    What do you call taking children from people who came to fill out paperwork for asylum?

    And? Most illegals, especially dreamers, are not felons under the law. Being here illegally is still a civil infraction. It is also a victimless crime that cons obsess over.
