    Should illegal entry be punished by the death penalty?

    I posit that illegally entering a country from the border is to be considered a form of subversion, as it contributes directly to social, and therefore political change, by which laws were broken to achieve. Logically then, it can be considered like treason, for which the penalty was death until the criminal justice act of 1990 made life in prison as the punishment. I think we should review this act, and eventually repeal it, to make it easier for the government to distribute justice for illegal entry, and all the heinous crimes that come with it.

    No.

    If we would get serious about cracking down internally on things like working illegally and benefits provided to families with known illegal status that would help reduce the flow of people coming here looking for those things. Then we would be better equipped to deal with the border and the people crossing so we can do the humane thing and process them according to the law. I support the death penalty but only in the most heinous of crimes which I do not consider crossing a border illegally to be one.

    No. The only time lethal force should be used is if there is a clear and present danger presented by illegal immigrants to the border guard or to the citizenry at large, i.e., an actual armed invasion or demonstration that illegal immigrants are engaging in terrorist activity. Short of that, nonlethal crimes should not be punished with lethal force nor by execution.
    Itís in the small things that the rot starts. Do the wrong thing once, itís easier to do it again. Do the individualistic thing once, it is easy to do it again.

    I think it is best to actually look up the definitions of words (subversion, treason, etc.) instead of using tortured logic to make connections that justify your contention.

    When I "dismiss" you it only means that I have determined that further discussion is useless or counter-productive. Don't take it personally. Go ahead and have your last word...and move on.

    Re: Should illegal entry be punished by the death penalty?

    The death penalty is far too extreme. We should use this instead:


    Who shall ascend the hill of the Lord? And who shall stand in his holy place? He who has clean hands and a pure heart, who does not lift up his soul to what is false, and does not swear deceitfully. Psalm 24
    "To exercise pressure upon the indigent and the destitute for the sake of gain, and to gather one's profit out of the need of another, is condemned by all laws, human and divine." - Pope Leo XIII

    Sure. Do that for all crimes. Littering would stop pretty fast
