If you commit a crime by entering our country illegally you should have no rights. If you commit an illegal act you loose your rights. The people that would be affected are the illegals.Oh wait have to be politically correct undocumented citizens

securing our borders really has nothing to do with civil rights. it has to do with the fact that it is illegal to enter this country covertly. illegal entry compromises the safety and security of the Amercian people.

Take a good look at Israel. it is as open society as it can be with the security issues they face. if we truly want to secure our borders we will have to sacrifice certain rights for security. its a bad bargain.

Fix the loopholes in the deportation laws so indicdents like Sacramento won't happen again. If an illegal commits a violent crime or smuggles illegal things (guns, substance, DV, CA etc) and gets deported, he/she stays gone.

didn't realize how confusing that sounded until I re read. Your civilian rights are dictated by the country you belong to. The US is not responsible for protecting civilian rights for people who claim or belong to another society.
