    Shouldn't we let the courts make that determination?
    "I am not angered that the Moral Majority boys campaign against abortion. I am angry when the same men who say, "Save OUR children" bellow "Build more and bigger bombers." That's right! Blast the children in other nations into eternity, or limbless misery as they lay crippled from "OUR" bombers! This does not jell." - Leonard Ravenhill

    Good question. My first thought is that somebody who is an otherwise law-abiding US citizen exercising civil disobedience to a "new law" is protected by due process of the US constitution -- somebody who is entering the country illegally, violating a long established law as their very first act, is a little more clear.

    How would you feel about someone going around breaking into houses to steal things from other people and claims it is to make a better life for his family?
