Dear Weekly Editor:
In a letter on 6/6/06, ATCR asked: What makes an undocumented worker a criminal? Entering the U.S. without inspection would make the undocumented worker a criminal; it's a misdemeanor the first time; s/he would be a felon for subsequent illegal entries. Using fraudulent documents to obtain employment would make the undocumented worker a criminal, probably a felon. Attesting on the I-9 form that s/he was entitled to work in the U.S. would make the undocumented worker a criminal. How about working "under the table" and not paying taxes? Etc. Etc.
