California Attorney General Kamala Harris shook our portion of the world when she recently said in an interview that undocumented immigrants are not criminals. A few days later, she gave the state another shake when she refused to back down from the sentiment in an interview with a Los Angeles TV station.
“An undocumented immigrant is not a criminal,” she said again. She said that as a career prosecutor, she knows crime when she sees it. And she knows criminals when she sees them. And when she looks at an undocumented immigrant, she says she's not looking at someone who committed a crime by coming to the U.S.
