Illegal Immigrants Who Commit Crimes Focus of Deportation

There are 26 comments on the www.nytimes.com story from Jan 8, 2012, titled Illegal Immigrants Who Commit Crimes Focus of Deportation. In it, www.nytimes.com reports that:

The federal agency in charge of deportations is conducting a far-reaching training course to push immigration enforcement officers and prosecutors nationwide to focus their efforts on removing immigrants convicted of crimes.

The training course is the clearest sign yet that administration officials want to transform the way immigration officers work, asking them to make nuanced decisions to speed deportations of high-risk offenders while halting those of illegal immigrants with clean records and strong ties to the country. The policy is President Obama’s most ambitious immigration initiative before the November elections, senior administration officials said.

Nah, we don't do that here. Send them back to their own countries where such often happens.

No they did not. Unlawful presence is a civil violation. That places it into the same legal classification as a traffic ticket. It is not a crime.
Duh. Not true, sparky. A civil violation is still a crime. How many times do you have to have it pointed out to you? The USA applies civil penalties to illegal aliens for their crime of illegal entry alone. Our laws clearly state this. Civil pentalties are exacted for criminal offenses.

Barron's Law Dictionary:

Civil penalty

Generally, fines or money damages imposed by a regulatory scheme. See, e.g., 15 U.S.C.§45(1). Civil penalties however, have been distinguished from civil remedies in that civil penalties are imposed as a punishment for certain activity and have the character of a criminal sanction, while civil remedies seek to redress wrongs or compensate for injuries suffered.

The article says, "'Chris Crane, the president of the union, the National ICE Council, has fiercely criticized the strategy, saying it amounts to orders from ICE officials for agents not to enforce the law. In Congressional testimony, Mr. Crane accused the administration of tailoring its enforcement practices to win support from immigrant communities for Mr. Obama’s re-election.

“Law enforcement and public safety have taken a back seat to attempts to satisfy immigrant advocacy groups,” Mr. Crane told a House Judiciary subcommittee in October.'

Thank you, Mr. Crane, for caring about the USA and her people.

Unlawful presence is a civil violation, which they can be deported for. Deportation is not a punishment, it just removes a person who does not have a right to be here and returns them to the country of their birth.

What illegal alien is here not working or driving, among other things?

If it's not a crime why do a truck load of illegal aliens get out and run when they are pulled over during a traffic stop?
