Arizona ’s new law makes an existing federal crime into also being a state crime. There are a lot of complaints about the law but the complaints are about what might happen if the law (federal or state) were actually to be enforced. This is a different issue than whether being an illegal alien is actually – you know – illegal. There are laws against illegal conduct. The problem here is that the federal law is not being enforced. Clearly, doing anything illegal is illegal.
