Since when does “immigration policy” have anything to do with illegals?
People that follow the US immigration laws are immigrants.
Illegals are criminals.
It is our immigration policy, enacted into law that makes them criminals. It is our immigration policy that makes illegal entry into the US only a misdemeanor. Reentry after being deported is a felony. The misdemeanor is normally waived after producing a US citizen/anchor baby.
Like if you robbed a second bank, then it would be a felony. Analogous to the “One free grope” rule for sexual harassement.
