Illegal Aliens In Utah Are “Unapologetic” And “Here To Stay”

This article from KSL in Utah exposes several of the problems with those who are unlawfully present in the United State

Roughly 200 people gathered in the Utah Capitol Thursday night, imploring the president to keep in place a federal program protecting 800,000 young immigrants from deportations.

Many at the rally said they would be deported if not for the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program. They urged other so-called “Dreamers” to tell people around them that their lives in the U.S. are threatened, post to social media and call their representatives in Congress.

No one is quite sure yet what Trump is going to do with DACA (though some report he will end it,) an executive amnesty program instituted without the approval of the duly elected Legislative branch, that has been referred to as unconstitutional and lawless. Many Republicans have give Trump till September 5th to make a decision, otherwise they’re taking it to court.

On Thursday, thunderous applause filled the marble rotunda as one young woman fought back tears, saying she was “undocumented, unapologetic and unafraid. I am here to stay.”

Many in the crowd held signs, including some that said “Stop tearing families apart” and “Immigrant rights are human rights.”

Unapologetic despite being present in the United States in contradiction of the law. Essentially telling Americans that they aren’t leaving, despite being lawbreakers. Those are serious problems which turn many people off from the plight of these trespassing aliens who were brought by their parents (supposedly). Instead of being demanding and unapologetic, they should be contrite and holding out their hand, begging to stay.

Then we get to “tearing families apart.” What do they mean? If the kids are deported, the parents would be, as well. Or, do they mean that the parents shouldn’t be deported? We keep hearing that the kids shouldn’t be punished because the parents broke the law. Pro-illegal forces, including the illegals themselves, are admitting the parents knowingly broke federal immigration law. As such, they should be punished for this. And the punishment is deportation. If you admit that you committed a crime, you’d be punished, would you not? Why should illegal aliens be any different? Compassion, you say? What of all the American citizen parents who are separated from their kids, and visa versa, because the former or latter has committed a crime and sent to prison? No one is making the “separated” claim.

Crimes have consequences. Do it the lawful way and there would be no problem.

    Every morning millions of Americans are illegal – breaking the laws by driving too fast on their way to work – some of the scofflaws also roll through stop signs. Thousands of innocent Americans die each year at the hands of these illegals, yet president after President ignore this lawlessness and resultant carnage. It cost society billions of dollars a year. Of course, these illegals are mostly white christians who get special privileges in America.

      You have just complained about traffic offenses, which are state crimes, not federal offenses. It is the federal government which is responsible for immigration, and thus the President’s concern; state crimes are the province of governors.

      You sound like the guy caught speeding whining to the police officer writing you at ticket that other people are whizzing past. Wahhhh!

    • david7134 says:

      Stupid, foolish analogy.

    • Yet, interestingly, those who are caught pay a penalty for the crimes they commit. Many go to jail. So, by extension, Jeff is saying that those who break the law should pay a penalty. For illegal aliens, that is deportation.

      Thanks for agreeing with us, Jeff!

      • Jeffery says:

        OK, fine, here’s your challenge, practice what you preach. Period. Advocate that ALL laws be enforced – march against prosecutorial discretion! The law is the law!

      • Dana says:

        For illegal aliens, the penalty is, and should be, more than just deportation. If they’ve been living here illegally, they have also had to use illegal means — fraudulent use of faked Social Security numbers, or working for cash (that’s income tax evasion) and the like — to support themselves. All of those things should be investigated, and charged, and jail time imposed, to ‘discourage’ them from returning after they are deported. Lock them up for maybe a quarter of their prison sentences, then deport them, with the notification that if they return and are caught, they go straight back to jail.

        The illegal who killed Kate Steinle had been deported five times! Even though he had served some previous prison time, it obviously wasn’t enough, and he had seven felony convictions. Miss Steinle is stone cold graveyard dead because we didn’t enforce the law with sufficient rigor previously.

          Study after study demonstrate that undocumented immigrants commit FEWER violent crimes per capita than do citizens.

          Regarding the “illegal” part of being in the US without permission:

          Improper Entry IS a Crime

          The most common crime associated with illegal immigration is likely improper entry. Under federal criminal law, it is misdemeanor for an alien (i.e., a non-citizen) to:
          1.Enter or attempt to enter the United States at any time or place other than designated by immigration officers;
          2.Elude examination or inspection by immigration officers; or
          3.Attempt to enter or obtain entry to the United States by willfully concealing, falsifying, or misrepresenting material facts.

          The punishment under this federal law is no more than six months of incarceration and up to $250 in civil penalties for each illegal entry. These acts of improper entry — including the mythic “border jumping” — are criminal acts associated with illegally immigrating to the United States. Like all other criminal charges in the United States, improper entry must be proven beyond a reasonable doubt in order to convict.

          Unlawful Presence Is Not a Crime
          Some may assume that all immigrants who are in the United States without legal status must have committed improper entry. This simply isn’t the case. Many foreign nationals legally enter the country on a valid work or travel visa, but fail to exit before their visa expires for a variety of reasons.
          But mere unlawful presence in the country is not a crime. It is a violation of federal immigration law to remain in the country without legal authorization, but this violation is punishable by civil penalties, not criminal. Chief among these civil penalties is deportation or removal, where an unlawful resident may be detained and removed from the country.

          Both improper entry and unlawful presence should be avoided by any immigrant to the United States, but an illegal alien cannot be criminally charged or incarcerated simply for being undocumented.

          You need to lobby Congress for more severe penalties.

          The white nationalist, neo-Nazi citizen that murdered Heather Heyer had a history of Hitler worship and mental illness.
