Yes, I agree that they committed a crime. But are there not degrees to criminal action? How is the crime of illegal immigration ranked, compared to something like, mass murder?
So, if you really dislike undocumented workers as criminals, I wonder how you would see Ted Bundy or the BTK Killer?
Better yet, what do you consider the worst crime? I know I can think of a lot of more terrible crimes than crossing over the border.
Those 'undocumented' are actually 'highly documented' with fraudulent documents our government readily accepts.
Calling an illegal alien an undocumented immigrant is like calling a burglar an uninvited house guest.

Brace yourselves for amnesty because we all know its going to happen in one fashion or another. Congress knows there is much more chance of 12,000,000 illegals rioting and causing upheaval than there is of REAL americans rioting due to an amnesty bill. It is the lesser of 2 evils in their minds.
Anyone that voted for that senate bill is a traitor to this country and should be treated accordingly.

Yes, the chances of the illegals taking the first step to riot is probably true. But I think the backlash from America would be swift and bloody. The illegals would lose any political support they might currently have.

One thing to think about in regard to the illegal immigration situation. The federal government can't enforce a situation without amnesty. The U.S. Government doesn't have enough boots on the ground to enforce the rounding up of 12 million people. They don't want the rest of the United States to know that, but the truth is they don't have the means, the people, the structure or anything else that could support it because they are so incompetent. Truth be known, the current illegal population is well organized because of their regular church goings and the catholic church community. The rest of this country used to have the same and that was the unity which kept us free. Today the current legal population of this country doesn't have that unity, the federal government has no control and the illegal populace has the unity and the control. The feds can't see it but in my opinion the truth is any organized faction, such as the illegals in the country, could over throw our current government in a heart beat as our current federal government are weak and stupid. We don't have any troops here, they are in Iraq and Afghanistan, another stupid move and everyone knows that no country has been able to stop a revolution with an army made of it's own citizens. I hope the idiots in Washington wake up as I don't want to live under communist or facist rule but I think the folks in washington are so involved with themselves that they can't see.
