What part of ILLEGAL do you not understand?

You know its your favorite comment. You’ve seen it posted on every message board from the New York Times to the Millwood Gazette.

Hmm… What is ALL the fuss about? I mean it must be something big if everyone is always writing in these CAPITAL LETTERS! Well it turns out that these are not criminals per se. As they have not committed a criminal violation, it is a CIVIL offense.

Just cut and paste the info between the lines to your favorite hate filled comment section!

Being illegally present in the U.S. has always been a civil, not criminal, violation of the INA, and subsequent deportation and associated administrative processes are civil proceedings. For instance, a lawfully admitted nonimmigrant alien may become deportable if his visitor’s visa expires or if his student status changes.
