While I agree that someone here illegally should not have some of the same rights as a citizen they do not have zero rights. Everyone is entitled to basic human rights and that includes the presumption of innocence until proven guilty. It would be a very dangerous precedence set if all one had to do was point to the nearest suspected illegal immigrant and say they did it and have them dragged off for whatever punishment you saw fit without a fair trial.
They should get a real if accused. They should not get a trial if there is cut and dry proof, or they are accusing.
