Los Angeles Times Suggests Illegal Immigration Is Not a Crime

Filed under: Dog Trainer,Immigration — Patterico @ 7:00 am

The L.A. Times this morning falsely implies that illegally entering the country is not a crime.

That is the impression left by an article this morning regarding a bill to make illegal presence in the United States a federal crime. By making the bill sound like it will recharacterize a significant number of illegal immigrants as criminals, the article falsely suggests that merely entering the country illegally is not a federal crime. Not so. The article should have made this point far more clear.
