Why is it so easy for anyone in USA could flee the country and if the commit a crime but for the rest of the continent of America we need a visa to go visit USA?

That is a true statement, however-

Criminals can have visas weather or not they have previously committed a crime. If they have, they could get a fake visa that would not show their criminal record. Also, if they haven't before, it makes it much easier to easily hop onto an airplane and adios suspect!

The visas are required for a person no matter if they are a criminal or not. If they havn't committed a crime before, and have not been accused for committing the crime in question, then they could easily be passed off as a normal citizen.

so why is it easy then i mean if u have to cross the border to get out of united states dont custom see that someone might have a record or if they flee by plane dont the custom see if they have a hold on them. if u could flee the state by going through USA custom something must be wrong with USA system but if someone wants to cross into the USA does border patrol is ready with their gun blazing. Theirs only one way to flee the USA through car or plane and u have threw go custom so how do they get away then?

Each country makes it's own regulations for entry. Americans need a visa to enter Mexico or Canada for more than a short visit or to get a job. It's "easy to flee" the U.S. because other countries do not protect their borders too well, so illegal entry is not too difficult. The same is true of the U.S. It's not too difficult to gain entry to the US, either by illegally crossing the border from Canada or Mexico, or by getting a tourist or student visa and then failing to leave.
