Illegally entering U.S. is crime


Look on page 6 of your 4/29/10 issue, halfway down the page. It really doesn’t make a difference how you feel about immigration; however, how can you publish an oxymoronic headline: “Arizona bill will make it a crime to be in U.S. illegally.”

You are illegal and a criminal if you are in the U.S. illegally. Nothing else matters.

Can we now ignore any law that does not favor us personally? Why not apply the same “logic” to automobile traffic?
