Giuliani: Illegal Immigration Isn't Illegal

Glenn Beck's website has an inconsistent interview with Rudy Giuliani
on illegal immigration.

First, Guiliani says illegal immigration isn't illegal.

GLENN: Right. But isn't illegal immigration a crime in and of itself?


Then Guiliani says it shouldn't be illegal:
GLENN: Should it be?

GIULIANI: Should it be? No, it shouldn't be because the government wouldn't be able to prosecute it. We couldn't prosecute 12 million people. We have only 2 million people in jail right now for all the crimes that are committed in the country, 2.5 million. If you were to make it a crime, you would have to take the resources of the criminal justice system and increase it by about 6. In other words, you'd have to take all the 800,000 police, and who knows how many police we would have to have.

Then Guiliani says he'd close the border to an illegal activity that he says isn't illegal in the first place:
GIULIANI: My solution is close the border to illegal immigration.
