It’s a crime to be a criminal

As footage of the protest rolled, Nguyen explained: “The law makes it a crime to be an illegal immigrant.”

Well, duh! That’s perfectly true, if by “the law” we mean “American immigration law in general” rather than “this new Arizona law.” Migratory peoples aren’t “illegal immigrants” unless there’s a law making them illegal. Which there is, and has been for a long time.

All we have to do is adopt Mexican immigration law, and it will all be perfectly fair.
