If I as a US citizen go to Mexico and get caught crossing the Rio Grande, I broke the law. - sm

I get arrested.

Why is it any different for a non-citizen?

If a non-citizen wants to come here, they have to do it legally, through a legal port of entry. They can claim asylum at the port of entry and start their paperwork to become a citizen or a legal permanent resident.

Entering the country any other way is an illegal act and that makes you a criminal.

The Supreme Court has ruled that legal permanent residents (a.k.a. green card holders) have the same rights as citizens. That is a different status than an illegal alien immigrant or undocumented immigrant (if you prefer.)

You really should know this stuff. It's been mentioned before. It's been in the reporting on the immigration issue. There's no excuse.
