Dear Editor:

Perhaps Ms. Christine M. Flowers, Esquire, misspoke when she said ..."we are not talking about criminals"... when referring to aliens illegally in the US. Title 8, U.S.C. (United States Code), Section 1325, says that any alien who enters the US without inspection or who "attempts to enter or obtains entry" by lying or concealing a material fact "shall," for the first conviction, be sentenced under Title 18, U.S.C., to not more than 6 months in prison and/or fined. (Not an exact quote - that's even longer.) While few of these people are "bad," they have committed a crime. If we, as a country of laws, ignore these millions of criminal violations, where does that leave us with other laws that many people consider unjust - drugs, IRS, etc.?
