Who really cares .
How does someone tell if someone is gonna go on a shooting spree. After all thats why it's perfectly acceptable to ask ID to buy a gun.
What confusion? What loophole?
But the "selective" confusion lies here.... the gaping loophole.
The absence of a record would indicate a clear possibility of "illegal" entry.
How so? With the immigration court backlog at 450,000 and rising?
The "Executive/Selective" prosecution is where the loophole is being exploited.
(a) Improper time or place; avoidance of examination or inspection; misrepresentation and concealment of facts
Any alien who (1) enters or attempts to enter the United States at any time or place other than as designated by immigration officers, or (2) eludes examination or inspection by immigration officers, or (3) attempts to enter or obtains entry to the United States by a willfully false or misleading representation or the willful concealment of a material fact, shall, for the first commission of any such offense, be fined under title 18 or imprisoned not more than 6 months, or both, and, for a subsequent commission of any such offense, be fined under title 18, or imprisoned not more than 2 years, or both.
8 U.S. Code § 1325 - Improper entry by alien
Are you implying that cases are not been brought before the court? That the backlog is intentional? You may want to review how many cases are adjudicated. But that's not exactly your style, is it?
Due Process, and total well planned government failure of handling the so-called "backlog".
Says pretty much the same thing as your first source. Yes, illegal entry is a criminal misdemenor.
Here is a better source other than a law firm with a vested interest.

Glad to see you would be happy to see this law spread that gives police even more power. And you will be in a thread soon talking about how all the power they are getting is coming from the big gov types.

I will ask you then seeing some are too cowardly to give a simple yes or no.
Do you want mandatory ID cards which the police can stop and ask for?.
Oh and this isn't about driving or having a bank account etc.
You are just walking down the road.
