A Chicago priest did and then had moral qualms about his action.

What do you think?

The lines to get back in are notoriously long.

Why not play illegal immigrant - after all sanctuary cities and the entire state of California welcome them with open arms.

Shouldn't U.S. citizens be able to do the same?

He spent three days in a home with 27 people waiting for smugglers to take him to the U.S. before abandoning his plan. Graf said he then hitched a ride and walked hours through the desert until he came to the border.

At nightfall Wednesday, Graf said he sat, prayed and looked at the fence for about an hour before climbing it. He thought he'd get arrested as soon as he landed on the other side, in Nogales, Ariz., but didn't see anyone around

That priest at least "manned up" and did the right thing by turning himself in.

I want a Ferrari. Doesn't mean I am entitled to one.

Harrier would do it just for the challenge.

He would have a passport with him, but he just wouldn't be entering the republic under the usual circumstances.
