    They'd break a bunch of laws. Tax laws, for one. Currency/counterfeiting if they try to pass their own money. If they threaten people, or assault them, that's breaking laws as well. And we won't even talk about murder, or kidnapping, or child endangerment, or any of the other many laws they might be breaking.

    Because you KNOW they'll be breaking plenty.

    They'd be dealt with by law enforcement, at various levels, NOT the military.

    This has happened before, many times, and I'm not talking about the civil war. They almost always get charged with some kind of tax charge, at the very least. Because, of course, they don't need to pay taxes to the US, at least in their minds.
