Legal or illegal status is not determined by looks. It is determined by a green card, resident alien card, citizenship papers, etc. If they can't produce them within a reasonable amount of time then I'd like to know why. I consider that due process. Why waste the courts time? It is costly and ties up our courts. We have been way to lenient with illegal aliens and I'm sure the writer's of the Constitution never envisioned millions of illegal aliens living among us and causing these kinds of problems.

As this thread continues, remember that the topic is not "what I personally think the constitution means". Start one if you feel like it, but here ? This is rather off topic, especially since it's a recurring topic. How many times must we all read the same old arguments from the same folks ? This horse is long dead, please let it go.
