In David D. Murray's thoughtful letter of September 27, he calls
illegal immigration "a crime, perhaps not as serious a crime as
serial murder ...". Surely he means "crime" in the colloquial sense
of "violation," but non-lawyers might get the wrong idea. Many if
not most "illegal immigrants" are civil violators who lack important
protections (guaranteed counsel, speedy trials, judicial review, &c.)
enjoyed by accused murderers.
