Why don’t we all disobey civil law until our government decides to enforce it with regard to illegal aliens, or decides to criminalize illegal entry to our country? After all, if I refuse to pay my child support, it’s not a criminal matter, just a civil matter.

No matter what this guy says, this is not a civil matter. A civil matter is between individuals or individuals and a business involving things like breach of contract, personal injury, or property rights, etc.

A criminal matter is between the government and an individual that involves legal action for breaking the government’s law.
