My apologies then. Her unfamiliarity with the United States makes it come off as she is a foreigner. Perhaps she didn't go to school here.

I'm not a she but a he and please explain what I wrote in my post that would indicate that I come off as a foreinger. I was born in the U.S., attended school here and am a senior citizen. I am quite familiar with the U.S. as I have never left it and grew up here.

You refer to illegal immigration as a crime.

Getting the 1st time in the US illegally is a misdemeanor. Getting caught a 2ND time IS a felony. Too; look at all the crimes illegals commit to live in the US like fake SSN's, not reporting taxes and so on. All felonies.

We have immigration laws. Violating our laws is a crime. Let's not try to whitewash it, shall we?

It does matter because those in Congress and the White House who do the opposite of what the people want will find themselves no longer working in Congress or the White House.

Never left it, no wonder you have so much ignorance and fear towards those from elsewhere.

So foreigners here in violation of our immigration laws should have a right to compete for jobs against Americans and "may the best man win"? We don't have enough competition for jobs between Americans themselves? Uh, the choices between prospective American job seekers is usually about the one with the best qualifications already.
Yes. The concept of "American jobs" is complete crap. Jobs are jobs and should be available to the best workers that want them, not just the ones who happened to be born in a certain area. More competition is ALWAYS a good thing for society overall.

I thought you said you went to school here. Anyone with an elementary level education from the United states knows the difference between a civil violation and a criminal violation. Being an illegal immigrant is a civil violation. It is not a crime.

You can stop with your insinuations that I'm stupid, thanks. Doesn't matter if it is civil or criminal coming here illegally is a violation of our immigration laws. Once deported and to return again is a felony. Again, you seem to want to whitewash illegal entry into our country by splitting hairs over terminology.

No one is saying that you're stupid. You seem to be getting defensive about nothing.

No one is whitewashing illegal entry into this country either. I'm just pointing out to you that you are going about it incorrectly. Being an illegal immigrant, in itself, is not a crime. This is not a minor distinction and the fact that you want to make a joke out our country's legal system and constitution is very concerning.
