    How unfortunate that the Supreme Court is making this more complex. Additionally, there are so many other things wrong with the US policy of what are considered deportable offenses. Many non-violent crimes, such as identity theft have large and long lasting implications for the victim. And the size of the underground economy means that illegals may avoid a lot of taxation, yet they become dependent upon taxpayer funded programs, or even get refunds and child credits. And in all of these cases we are also saddled with the burden of paying for their incarceration, correction or removal.
