Thoughts: I don't understand some people

I don't understand why people would protest illigal immigration? That is like protesting murder or protesting anything else that is illigal.
Thousands of immigrant rights supporters filled a major Phoenix thoroughfare Friday morning as they marched toward the office of U.S. Sen. Jon Kyl in a rally call for a more humane reform of immigration laws.

The turnout clogged a main thoroughfare in the city as protesters marched to the office of U.S. Sen. Jon Kyl, calling for humane reform of immigration laws.

Many of the protesters said they were most incensed by one immigration reform proposal approved by the U.S. House of Representatives in December that would make it make it a felony to be in the country illegally.

Kyl, a Republican, is sponsoring a bill along with Republican Sen. John Cornyn of Texas that would give illegal immigrants up to five years to leave the country. They would then be able to apply from their home country to return, either as temporary workers or for permanent residency.

The protests come as President Bush has urged lawmakers to approach the contentious immigration issue in a way that avoids pitting groups against each other.
As far as I'm concerned we should round up these protesters as I'm sure there are some illigal immigrants protesting with them. I really don't see how getting into this country ILLIGALLY isn't a felony already. I don't understand why we don't just deport every illigal we find in the first place.
