Defending someone from being robbed is NOT "convicted of a violent crime or serious felony". 

Arrested for not having an ID is NOT "convicted of a violent crime or serious felony.

Working with a fake ID is NOT a "convicted of a violent crime or serious felony".To repeat MunoRN:  Do you disagree with reporting people here illegally who have also been convicted of a violent crime or serious felony?

 

 What are the crimes? Are they defending someone from being robbed and they get arrested as well? Do they not have an ID and get arrested? For me, there are shades of grey.  If someone does a  VIOLENT CRIME there are different types of felonies (shade of grey)  they should be sent back. If someone is shoplifting, why are they shoplifting are they hungry, do suffer from a mental health illness. The majority of people do not just steal (maybe I am naive ). What resources are available to these immigrants? Working with phony social security is illegal. It should not take that long to hear an immigration case why are they waiting months to years to be heard. How can  America contribute to, and help the country that these people are leaving and not let China take over becoming a superpower? ( my answer is not going to change)

On the outside chance that Harris is the Democratic nominee, will you vote third party or Trump? Have you decided?

No, I have not decided.

Who are you voting for?

Is this an answer? Is a question an answer?

OH! Your answer was separated by "there are different types of felonies (shade of grey)"

I apologize. If the bold part of your "answer" is the answer I overlooked the answer and asked again. I am sorry for not reading it more carefully.

PS: I also make grammar and punctuation errors.

The Democratic nominee no matter which it is. The primary in my state (Alaska) doesn't matter so whoever you all choose is who gets my vote.

In my opinion, every vote should count.

Alaska Democrats utilize the caucus strategy in the primary.  I complained to the leadership as that, IMV, automatically limits the voice of people who cannot attend. Similarly, with fewer than a half million voters in a state that is 4 hours behind the west coast, our votes are more an exercise of civic duty than decisive in a national election.  Most people in the lower 48 have decided who is going to win before most Alaskan voters are off work and headed to the polling place. 

Every vote will not count as long as we continue to allow winner take all electoral college votes in presidential elections. It's unlikely to change in the near future when one of the two political parties hasn't been able to elect a president with the popular vote in several election cycles but can elect them with the EC and voter suppression tactics. .

Brought this to my mind:  "When I was a prosecutor, I thought and spoke as a prosecutor, then I became a politician, now I think and speak as a politician".  No real reason for me to think this, it just popped into my head as I read the first post.

The  Statue of Liberty poem, New Colossus

 

“Give me your tired, your poor, Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, The wretched refuse of your teeming shore Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed to me, I lift my lamp beside the golden door!” These words are mounted on a plaque on the Statue of Liberty. The only inscription can be found on the tablet in her left hand, which states JULY IV MDCCLXXVI (July 4, 1776), the day the United States adopted the Declaration of Independence." That is the creed of America. When people are sent back by ICE sometimes, they become targets by their government. These people could be tortured or killed.  Since they left their country and embarrassed their government. If someone does a  VIOLENT CRIME, they should be sent back. If someone is shoplifting, why are they shoplifting are they hungry, do suffer from a mental health illness. The majority of people do not just steal (maybe I am naive ). What resources are available to these immigrants? Working with phony social security is illegal. It should not take that long to hear an immigration case why are they waiting months to years to be heard. How can  America contribute to, and help the country that these people are leaving and not let China take over becoming a superpower? 

Violent criminals here illegally should be moved to the front of the line for deportation, but I'm not sure that only violent crimes should make someone ineligible for naturalization.  I don't think it's unreasonable to expect someone wanted to come here to be willing to follow our laws, I suppose you could say a speeding ticket doesn't necessarily mean someone overtly lacks respect for our laws, but there needs to be a line drawn somewhere in there that includes more than just violent crimes, arguably to include all non-misdemeanor crimes.

There are certainly issues with how we release deported immigrants into Mexico; it's almost always at night and at the same spots, we're essentially delivering them to sex traffickers and other forms of human trafficking, but there's no evidence that those deported are generally subjected to torture or death by governments.  

I do agree though that particularly in central America, where the conditions that drive people north are largely of our making, we need to help address the issues that are the root of the problem rather than complaining that people are fleeing a situation we helped create.

When I was an agnostic, I thought and spoke as an agnostic, then I had a spiritual epiphany and now I think and speak as a spiritual person. Same thing happened when I became a nurse, then a parent, a bereaved child/friend/sibling. 

It's interesting that this thought jumped into your head, though.  Something about it must have struck a chord within you.
