ENTERING the country is illegal...
BEING in the country is not!
According to the Court of Appeals of the state of Kansas

kscourts.org--

Case number 96613 in a circuit Court of Appeals of the state of Kansas, State of Kansas versus Nicholas Martinez ruled that those who enter this country illegally is a crime and is subject to deportation, however, the illegal aliens ongoing presence in the United States in and of itself is not a crime unless that person has previously been deported and regained illegal entry into this country.
" 6. 8 U.S.C. § 1325 (2000) declares an alien's unsanctioned entry into the United States to be a crime. While Congress has criminalized illegal entry into this country, it has not made the continued presence of an illegal alien in the United States a crime unless the illegal alien has previously been deported and has again entered this country illegally. 8 U.S.C. § 1326 (2000) makes it a felony for an alien who has been deported to thereafter reenter the United States or at anytime thereafter be found in the United States. "

The case manifested itself when Martínez being an illegal alien would be unable to fulfill the mandated probationary terms, which requires the parolee not to violate any State or local laws, however, because of Martínez immigration status, his continued presence in the United States in itself is a violation of 8 U.S.C. § 1326 (previously deported), which is a compelling reason to deny probation.

Additionally, "the district court does not engage in enforcing our nation's immigration laws by simply recognizing a defendant's immigration status for the purpose of deciding whether the defendants is amenable to probation."

In short, even though Martínez has pled guilty to the possession of cocaine and endangering a child, the two main issues (1) whether the fact that he is an illegal alien justifies the denial of presumptive probation and (2) whether the district judge gave him fair notice of her intention to impose a departure sentence.

Don't blame the judge on this one. This is a complete and total lack of leadership by the United States congress for not coming up with an illegal immigration package.

Kansas, along with a few other 'ass' states, has some rather odd ideas about the world. Did you hear about the Kansan who railed on Bush for making daylight savings time earlier? - He swore it was causing global warmaing because the plants and animals were confused by the change in daylight hours.
Now, I'm not a scientist but I do know that was a stupid comment.
They also ban books in Kansas, Texas, Utah and Arkansas, just to name a few.
And, by the way, I am from Kansas. I am reminded daily why I left.
