E-M:/ Why are Illegal Immigrants Illegal?

Enviro-Mich message from Roger Kuhlman <rokuhlman@yahoo.com>

Some people have asked why Illegal Immigrants slated
to get amnesty under the newly passed Senate
Immigration 'Reform' bill are called illegal. The
answer is pretty simple. All of them have broken US
law. They have illegally crossed our borders. They are
illegally working in America. Most have purchased and
used fraudulent documentation to secure employment or
obtain social benefits only available to permanent
residents and US citizens. Many have committed the
crime of identity theft (which is a felony) by
stealing and using social security numbers of American
citizens. Some have not paid taxes owed on income
gained from employment. Others have been captured by
INS officials and released on their own voluntary
recognizance to deport themselves but then do not do
so. Others known as coyotes have trafficked illegal
immigrants into our country. 

That is a lot of lawbreaking. If you don't enforce the
law on these matters you basically have declared open
borders and say unlimited numbers of foreign citizens
can immigrate to the United States. US citizens then
have no choice in who comes here and in what numbers.
