Obama illegal immigrant prosecution: Haven't they all broken the law?

November 23, 2011

I read with skepticism John Fritze's article ("Illegal migrants hope for reprieve," Nov. 19) on President Obama's new policy of separating illegal immigrants between those who have or haven't committed a crime.

I compliment Mr. Fritze for not sugarcoating Mr. Alfaro's status as many now do as "undocumented." Mr. Alfaro is in this country illegally and will not explain how he did this. This also consequently makes him an accessory with those who bring aliens to this country illegally.

I fail to understand how, if President Obama wants to only enforce immigration laws against those who have committed crimes, why illegal immigrants do not automatically fall into this category.
