A person entering the United States illegally is not typically charged as a criminal. In the event that anyone was charged as a criminal, they would be afforded rights as non-U.S. citizens, such as due process and the right to an attorney in a criminal trial. This is according to the U.S. Constitution—regardless of the practices of this administration.
Since being “out of status” is a civil crime, there is no public attorney assigned to any of these cases. An alleged illegal immigrant must provide his or her own legal representation for an immigration hearing,
You have got to be kidding me.... If she can look at the law and somehow interpret that to mean that crossing the border illegally is not a crime, then there is absolutely no hope for that woman.
If this asinine statement and not using the word terrorist unless it's about our own citizens is a sample of what we have to look forward to from her, our country is in big trouble.
Do you think each illegal should be charged with entering the US illegally?
I am trying to stay on this topic but you keep bringing up other issues as well.
"Building a North American Community" published by the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR). The CFR report connects the dots between the Bush administration's actual policy on illegal immigration and the drive to create the North American Union:
In March 2005, the leaders of Canada, Mexico, and the United States adopted a Security and Prosperity Partnership of North America (SPP), establishing ministerial-level working groups to address key security and economic issues facing North America and setting a short deadline for reporting progress back to their governments. President Bush described the significance of the SPP as putting forward a common commitment "to markets and democracy, freedom and trade, and mutual prosperity and security." The policy framework articulated by the three leaders is a significant commitment that will benefit from broad discussion and advice.

You guys sit around and complain about big government and all this stuff, and yet then you cry about things like this. You cry because they aren't going into other places and being big brother to them.
Makes me sick.
