No, only the ones who are here illegally...you know by breaking the law, hence criminal.

Perhaps they all are? You actually have no idea.

Note the term "immigrant" communities? Twist and spin, twist and spin.

To a lesser degree, yes. They major difference is that legal citizens pay a legal price while illegals don't. They just go on their merry way, breaking this and other laws.

Yes; some are hard workers and only broke a few of our laws. The problem is not only that illegal immigrants broke our law crossing into our country. They have broken many laws. When they fill out job applications they are probably breaking the law. If they take under-the-counter work - they are breaking our laws. If they don’t report their earnings and pay taxes - they are breaking our laws.

Some of our illegal population got into our country smuggling drugs. Some were gang members and some were criminals in their native countries. Some could be terrorist and we would not know. That is the problem with a large undocumented illegal population.

Many plead a case for the children of illegal immigrants that they claim are innocent. We (the US) did not invite their parents into this country. Their parents are the ones that should be held accountable for endangering their own children.

Right now many legal immigrants are out of work. Many US citizens are also out of work. Now is not the time to turn a blind eye to the problem.

No. Not every law is a matter of the criminal code. Jaywalkers are not "criminals to a lesser degree," they are simply not criminals at all.

Which would be why these "jaywalkers", if they fail to pay the fine or fail to appear in court can be jailed?

Who are you to determine what is a crime or what is not a crime?

BTW, the "criminal code" you so blithely dismiss is a written set of laws. Hence breaking even an inconsequential law is a crime, making the offender a criminal. At least in the real world.

In the other thread you said the illegals (the ones who "waltz on over") were all lazy as a result of some sort of cultural breeding thing. So I don't think Real Americans have anything to worry about in this regard.
