overstaying a visa is a felony. Coming back here after being deported is a felony. Just sneaking in is a misdemeanor. So ALL illegals ARE criminals. they are also line-jumping, selfish, arrogant, disrespectful, greedy hunks of it. They can damned well wait in line to get here LEGALLY, or go somewhere else, or how about this one, DONT HAVE KIDS that you can't arrange to raise properly. Then there wont be any pressures on people anymore.
I have no idea where you got this information but it is incorrect. Overstaying a Visa is a civil offense--like a misdemeanor. The only punishment is deportation...if you are caught.
Criminal offenses, on the other hand, arise from the violation of local ordinances or state or federal statutes prohibiting certain conduct. A criminal offense can involve a fine, an arrest, or confinement in jail or prison.
Civil offenses include things like breach of contract, restraining orders, evictions/landlords, enforcing public codes of behavior. They are NOT felonies.
Your current president has been in civil court cases by the dozens. Maybe he should be deported.
