“Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano stunned many listeners during an appearance on CNN when she asserted that illegal immigration is really not a crime,” reports Newsmax.com .
Questioning the actions of Sheriffs who are trying to impose the law and prevent illegal immigration, Napolitano stated, “And yes, when we find illegal workers, yes, appropriate action, some of which is criminal, most of that is civil, because crossing the border is not a crime per se. It is civil. But anyway, going after those as well.”
In actual fact, illegal immigration is….you guessed it – illegal! It’s a crime.
“Any alien who enters or attempts to enter the United States at any time or place other than as designated by immigration officers . . . shall, for the first commission of any such offense, be fined under title 18 or imprisoned not more than 6 months, or both,” the law states.
