Anyone, regardless of citizenship and subject to the jurisdiction of the US is protected under the supreme law of the land that empowered the public sector to enforce its laws. In other words, anyone is protected by the 5th Amendment if they are brought on charges based on laws, which are based on the US Constitution.

Are you able to prove that statement, Danielpalos?

Anyone entering this country illegally should not have any rights due to the fact they have chosen to disrespect our laws.

If you are a United States Citizen, do you honestly believe The Constitution would protect you if your chose to break the law in Mexico?

The statement is self-evident. Where do our (US) laws originate from? The Constitution was declared and ordained, the supreme law of the land. Anyone breaking a US law must be tried in accordance with the supreme law of the land.

Why would US laws be any more valid in Mexico, than Mexican laws in the US?
