    Illegal immigration is a crime, hence the word "illegal".


    Under Title 8 Section 1325 of the U.S. Code, "Improper Entry by Alien," any citizen of any country other than the United States who:

    Enters or attempts to enter the United States at any time or place other than as designated by immigration officers; or

    Eludes examination or inspection by immigration officers; or

    Attempts to enter or obtains entry to the United States by a willfully false or misleading representation or the willful concealment of a material fact;
    has committed a federal crime.

    Violations are punishable by criminal fines and imprisonment for up to six months. Repeat offenses can bring up to two years in prison. Additional civil fines may be imposed at the discretion of immigration judges, but civil fines do not negate the criminal sanctions or nature of the offense.

    Is a civil offense not a crime?

    According to wiki (which I really hate citing)

    Why aren't all those caught over the years gone to prison if it is a criminal offense?

    Is speeding a crime? Do we get prison sentences for illegal parking?

    So sending illegal immigrants back to their country is now a prison sentence? They are detained until the Federal Immigration authorities decide what to do with them ACCORDING TO FEDERAL LAW!!!!!!!!! What exactly is wrong with that?

    Because the punishment for most illegal immigrants is to be sent back to their country of citizenship. Unless there are circumstances that the Federal Authorities decide to use prison as a punishment.
