    We're all illegal

    Letters for June 16, 2011 - Letters - Opinions - June 16, 2011 - Reno News & Review

    Why is illegal immigration a crime? Because the law say it is a crime. Before there were no immigration laws (before 1929) immigration could not be illegal. Therefore it is in error that one may say “we are all illegal” as an excuse for the presence of illegal aliens who did not follow the law when entering this country.
    When Europeans entered this country in 1492 there were no immigration laws and native Americans did not make a claim on the land because they did not believe the land could be owned. At some later date Native Americans did make claim on some of the land.
    Where there is no law there cannot be a crime.

    ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION IS A CRIME

    The immigration authorities currently estimate that about two-thirds of all illegal immigrants are EWIs and the remainder is overstayers. Both types of illegal immigrants are deportable under Immigration and Nationality Act Section 237 (a)(1)(B) which says: "Any alien who is present in the United States in violation of this Act or any other law of the United States is deportable."
