You call breaking and entering, and trespassing, ‘bogus crimes’?


They are guilty of neither of those things. Learn what words mean.

Except no, it really isn't.

Illegal immigration is something that only very recently became a crime (In the 1920s, I think, at least in the US).

Here's the problem though: For most crimes, it is possible to point out where damage was caused by the criminal. We can find victims, in other words.

Who's the victim when it comes to illegal immigration though? Are you, personally, damaged by the presence of a mexican farm hand where there was none before? Is anyone?
On the contrary, there is a mountain of evidence that the illegal immigrant population of the US is vastly more productive than other population segments (i.e. they are in the country to do work). The myth of the illegal immigrant who comes into the country to do a crime or ten is just that: A myth. Not saying that it doesn't happen, of course, but considering the fact that those crimes are massively overreported by the usual suspects puts that into perspective.

Illegal immigration, from my personal perspective, is a bogus crime. Prosecuting it doesn't help anyone. It doesn't make you, personally, safer; On the contrary, if you happen to look like an illegal immigrant to an enforcement officer, chances are you're going to have a rather unpleasant encounter with law enforcement in your future.

And would you look at that, anti-immigrant policies turn out to have side effects for actual citizens: https://www.washingtonpost.com/world/th ... dbcddd6543

Who could have seen that coming, right?

The next step would be to call into question the legitimacy of birth certificates issued at a hospital.

Citing unnamed sources will destroy a story almost everytime.

"People tell me..."

"Many people are saying..."

"I was told that..."

Claiming anonymous sources for random crap he makes up is like his signature move. Especially when he gets caught making it up and wants to shift the blame to whatever imaginary friend he wants to pretend gave him the information.
