Hope she wins an appeal. If she was 4 when she entered the USA her age precludes her from being criminal.
Great, so if we follow your logic, not only do we have to deal with anchor babies, but anyone with a toddler would be encouraged to hop across the border too. Where’s the line? 5 years old too young? How about 10? Maybe 17?
Hush yo mouf - there are many rabid dogs on FR that will ask you if you understand "illegal" for that kind of crazy talk. They think the sins of the father should be visited on the child. I asked one guy if he thought a 4 year old who was taken to the store by his father should be punished if the father shoplifted - in order to make his point, he said yes.
