"When a Mexican, or any other citizen, crosses a boarder, let's say illegally, they are not committing a crime. They are doing it illegally, but they are not committing a crime. No, they are not. Check your law," Public Affairs Minister Ariel Moutsatos-Morales says.

then return our soldier whoaccidentally crossed your border. the guns he had are legal in the usa and the border crossing isn’t a crime, so release him. you freaking burro munchers.

Article: “When a Mexican, or any other citizen, crosses a boarder, let’s say illegally, they are not committing a crime.”

Crossing your boarder is not a crime but not a good way to keep him.

Like to say it’s typical illogic from Mexico - a place where logic never existed - but I’ve heard idiots in this country parroting that line.

It’s a violation of 8 U.S. Code § 1325 - Improper entry by alien.

First time’s a Federal misdemeanor, up to 6 months jail AND/OR a fine of $50-$250. That’s where they get the “it’s a civil infraction” bit.

Not like some Mexican Invasion Reconquistador AHole would get that.

A shipload of Chinese landed at Ensenada, Mexico about 20 years ago. I remember that the Mexicans rounded them up, painted their heads red, and put them all on a plane bound for China. The Mexicans know how to enforce THEIR immigration laws.

This just means they’re not violating MEXICAN law.

Well, to be honest, if the magical Spaniards hadn't visited mexico, today they would still be cutting out hearts and eating each other.

If they were planning stay in Mexico, I’m sure the Mexicans would consider them ‘illegal’.

Those wacky Mexicans. Too much tequila. They know about as much about OUR LAWS as Barry and Holder do.

I wonder if Honduras, Salvadorans, Panamanians, etc. crossing the southern border of Mexico are committing a crime if they cross illegally?

Oh, I don’t have to wonder. If caught, they get put in a Mexican prison, don’t they? Not issued a “please show up to court on this day and time” request.

The first illegal crossing is a civil infraction, equivalent of a speeding ticket. The second and subsequent crossings are felonies.
