If they're not criminals...

We continue to hear illegal immigrants and their fans complain that they are not criminals.  We also continue to hear that the immigration reform favored by the President is not amnesty because, among other things, it imposes fines upon the illegal immigrants.

Wait a moment.  If they are not criminals, then why are they to be fined?  And if they are not criminals then why the assurances that illegals are not going to be given amnesty?

And if breaking our immigration laws is not a crime then what is it?  Just a really big no-no?
