A change of venue is granted when it is deemed that the defendant cannot receive a fair trial. That does not translate into the trial being moved to another state, it is moved to another jurisdiction,county, etc. The defendant must stand trial in the state in which the crime was committed. Even if the defendant is charged with a federal crime; the trial generally takes place in the federal court in the state where the crime was committed.

Entrapment is an affirmative defense to most criminal charges stemming from a law enforcement officer or agent of a law enforcement agency inducing the alleged defendant into committing a crime that he would not otherwise commit. The person who lures into person into the crime must be involved for the crime to commit.Another View: (In US criminal law) A person is 'entrapped' when they are induced (i.e.: "egged on") or persuaded by law enforcement officers or their agents to commit a crime that they had no previous intent to commit.However, there is no entrapment when that person is ready and willing to break the law and the government agents merely provide what appears to be an opportunity for them to commit it.

This question does not have an answer because you're stating something that is not true. You're saying that "illegal immigrants commit crimes when they arrive to America" and you're asking why. But the way the question is written it implies that ALL illegal immigrants commit crimes. The truth is most illegal immigrants who come to America come to work hard, and they're honest, humble people who only want a better future for their families. There are some that commit crimes yes, just like there are some American citizens that commit crimes, just like there are some legal residents that commit crimes. But it's a small percentage.

The answer is about 90-100% of criminals commit another crime
