On October 7, 2013 California Governor Jerry Brown signed a state bill prohibiting law-enforcement officials from detaining an individual on the basis of a U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement hold after that person becomes eligible for release, unless he or she has been charged with or convicted of certain crimes, including violent felonies.
Illegal immigrants are already in the country illegally. That in and of itself is a crime. I don’t agree with the current process for legally entering the country, but if you enter the US it should have to be through the legal route.
Yes. THE KEYWORD HERE IS ILLEGAL. That means NOT legal. That means AGAINST OUR LAWS. It's not that difficult to understand. Anyone who has broken any of our laws should be detained until they are proven innocent or guilty.
The right to send immigrants to authorities should be given predetermined rules so that we can handle immigrants and focus on allowing them to help our society rather than simply deporting them. The rules may be more strict on immigrants, but they should be given a right to at least try to get U.S. citizenship.
