This question is misleading. The question should say illegal immigrant rather than immigrant, which carries the connotation that they immigrated legally. An illegal immigrant should be deported and a legal immigrant should be prosecuted.

YES, All Foreign Law Breaking Illegal Invaders should be STOPPED AT THE BORDER. They are NOT IMMIGRANTS, Legal Immigrants follow the RULES, have proper documentation and enter at PROPER Entry Points. ALL OTHER MUST NOT be allowed to STEP ONE FOOD onto OUR LAND!

@9BXP2SRIndependent from Iowa answered…4wks

It depends on their immigration status. If they are here illegally, they should be deported. If they are here legally, they should go through due process. If found guilty, deportation should be considered in light of their type of visa or residency, and the type of crime they were convicted of.

@9BXBFDDDemocrat from New Hampshire answered…4wks

Yes, but every encounter with the US government should also give them the option to pursue citizenship.

@9BX7RTD from Texas answered…4wks

@9BWL7TT from Minnesota answered…4wks

If they are a citizen they should be treated the same as any other citizen

what is a "serious" crime? that's left up for so
much debate. when i think serious crime, for instance, i think (convicted) mass shootings, rapes, pedophiles, trafficking of any kind...
for "serious" crimes that involved the loss of life, chronic behavioral issues where they have been charged guilty, pedophilia/rape/etc, trafficking..folks should have citizenship revoked, sent home to do their time off of our tax dollar... and we work to be on service
to their families.
families who aren't doing "serious" crimes... like petty thefts, non-violent offenders, non-violent 1st time drug offenses (personal use)..
things like that... can be worked ok in our system...

@9BQBRRD from North Carolina answered…1mo

they should face the law, not sent back to a country they escaped for a good reason

@9BQBHYR from Florida answered…1mo

Yes, as long as it is safe for them to return to their country, if not they serve their time in the US under heavy watch

@9BP5CNP from New York answered…1mo

Depends on the crime and the legal immigration status of the person

@9BNJ8QM from Maryland answered…1mo

Yes, if they are illegal and the crime was violent or a trafficking crime

@9BNBJNT from Delaware answered…1mo

Only if they are illegal immigrants and it is safe for them to return to their home country

@9BMDQR9 from Florida answered…1mo

Depends on the crime, if murder then yes. If for drug related or petty crimes then base it on a court based system.

@SEVY2001Independentfrom Nevada  answered…1mo

No, but they should be put to justice in the criminal-legal system. US deportations to Latin America as a whole doesn't do anything except spread the problems there and creates backfiring to the US. Many MS-13 gang members found deportations to be nothing but a "free-ride"and allowed them to develop and expand even wider throughout El Salvador and the US again.

@9BLJXVPSocialist from Vermont answered…1mo

No, but they should be convicted the same way a US-born citizen would be

@9BKHHVN from North Carolina answered…1mo

Illegal immigrants should be deported before they can commit a crime in the United States.

@9BGWRGN from Texas answered…2mos

Yes, but only if they have been a U.S. citizen for less than five years.

@9BGT5WH from Texas answered…2mos

If the immigrant is a legal citizen of the United States then no but they should serve their time for the crime committed, as for illegal immigrants they could be tried and serve time in the United States or be deported to mexico and they can handle that.

@9BFTJ87 from New York answered…2mos

No, Mandatory Doubling of the length of any sentence for a Serious Crime or Automatic Aggravation of the charge, whichever is greater.
