What a joke. Obozo's policy now is no deportation unless you kill or rape. This amounts to amnesty for all 40 million of our illegals.

No need to prosecute those of us with minor crimes. The U. S. has bigger problems to solve.

income tax evasion is a major crime.....that is stealing from the US government and think of all the years in taxes YOU OWE! AND USING FRAUDULENT DOCUMENTS as you brag of doing including drivers license only adds to your spotless record. They're coming after you, sooner or later you'll be history.

The majority of the undocumented immigrants like myself contribute to society. I wire new homes that help keep the prices low so you can afford them.

You are like the terd that will not flush. That is what you and your criminal kind contribute to America.
You do not keep home prices low, you are merely a peon for the builder so the builder and make a few extra dollars on the house.
Pesos for the peons. get it, pee ons.
Tick Tock.

This is why you are not taken seriously.

Who ever suggested getting drunk and ramming police cars would be "a minor crime"? Who?

Try worrying about things that happen in real life instead of just in your head.

How do you decipher what crimes are major or minor. I thought the United States lived by the law. If I commit a misdameanor The cops aren't going to say. Oh , you didn't commit a serious offense so just go home. Are you kidding me. But if I'm illegal in this Country, I get a pass? That's absurd. Give me a break people. These grunt's really get away with way to much. They're like cockroaches clamering all over the place. Makes law enforcement dizzy I guess and they just give up.

Are these serious questions? Let's break it down.

A major crime would be called a felony.

A minor crime which you have proposed committing would be a minor crime.

If somebody were to enter the country illegally that is called unlawful presence. This is what is known as a civil offense. It is not a crime at all.

This places unlawful presence into the same legal classification as a traffic ticket. I do not know if you have ever received a traffic ticket, but it would be quite unusual for somebody to be detained for a traffic ticket. The police generally let you go home. Unless of course you are undocumented and then you would be in much more trouble.

So you are right. There is a double standard. If you commit a civil offense you pay a fine and go on with your life, but if an undocumented person were to do the exact same thing the consequences would be much different.

that is correct and the way it should be,its only a civil offense the first time because they want to get rid of the alien as soon as possible not because its ok to invade this country,i dont think a second parking tickect to a citizen is called a felony like a second time "civil offense" is for an illegal alien

I think its funny how illegals Try to push thier agenda by pointing a finger at Americans who comit crimes,well its not going to work,Mexico allows cartels to kidnap,torture and kill its citizens,many of those parasites end up in my country and they absolutely comit crimes such as rape,murder,robberies,forced prostitution and ofcourse the one they break ever second of everyday is unlawful presence.
