If it's not illegal, then it's not "just a tiny bit illegal." I would suggest purging that justification from one's mind, b/c it does nothing to help uphold the laws that we're trying to enforce, and it certainly is no justification for breaking the law. If it's legal, that's fine. I have problems with people who believe they are above the law. They're not much better than these illegals who are insulting the principles this nation was founded upon (incidentally, vigilantism is not one of these principles).

I agree you can do it to show support. Just don't act like a law enforcement officer.
You know you can take things a little to seriously ...

What I said in the OP is called absurdity laced with sarcasm to address the obvious, OK?

There are plenty of way to get rid of illegals without breaking the law, what I said was to note what would that government do? If they are not going to enforce the laws already in place (since 1986) against illegals then how can they enforce the laws against the legals for doing the job they won't do? So to remain legal put on your very best Gomer Pyle voice and yell "Citizens arrest, citizen arrest ..."


Jeez it just looses so much it you have to explain it.

Wearing a tee shirt is not illegal at all, you can buy tee shirts and hats that say FBI or anything else, it's not a crime, you just can't claim to be an employee of that department. It's a fun idea and it would get a lot of attention and laughs, it would clear out Walmart and you could shop in empty isles, just be ready to be confronted and have a simple responce that shouldn't get you killed.
