Acting Customs and Border Protection Commissioner Mark Morgan is quoted as saying, “I understand that the girl is upset and I get that. But her father committed a crime.”

For the record, an alien who has entered the country improperly and has committed no other crimes is subject to a fine or no more than 6 months in prison, or both, according to Title 8 of the U.S. Code, as cited by Cornell University’s Legal Information Institute.
