So you're cool with some crackheads coming into your house in the middle of the night? They're just j-walking across property lines, what's the big deal?

Ah, but the US IS private property, it belongs to US citizens, not Mexican citizens. Trespassing is trespassing no matter which way you cut it. And you think no US citizens own the property on the border???

I know trespassing is bad. Immigrating to the U.S is not the right way to do it. I don't support this.

That's respectable, I just don't agree with the analogy that the crime of entering the US illegally is as insignificant as J-walking.

According to the law it is. Can this be changed? sure. Should this be changed? why not. It is when one gets deported and then comes back, gets caught is it a felony.
