Criminalizing Illegality

"The boycott was organized by immigrant activists angered by federal legislation that would criminalize illegal immigrants and fortify the U.S-Mexico border. Its goal was to raise awareness about immigrants' economic power."

pardon my ignorance here... maybe it's just semantics, but if something is against the law (read illegal) isn't it by that very fact alone a crime (read criminal)?
