Forbes Magazine: Would Anne Frank's Father Have Been Criminally Prosecuted?

Referencing the Justice Department's recent announcement that it would criminally prosecute every single person attempting to cross the border without authorization under the illegal entry and re-entry statutes, Stuart Anderson asks in Forbes Magazine: Would the Justice Department Have Prosecuted Anne Frank's Father?

"Found hiding in an attic, Anne Frank died in the Holocaust after her father exhausted all legal means of escape, including being unable to get a visa to America. If her father had entered the United States without papers and asked for asylum should he have been prosecuted for illegal entry? Should he have been prosecuted for “smuggling” his own child?"
