Felonies Under The Federal Immigration and Nationality Act
US Gov ^ | Unknown | US Congress

Posted on 07/16/2014 12:10:12 AM PDT by Windflier

Section 274 felonies under the federal Immigration and Nationality Act, INA 274A(a)(1)(A):

A person (including a group of persons, business, organization, or local government) commits a federal felony when she or he: assists an illegal alien s/he should reasonably know is illegally in the U.S. or who lacks employment authorization, by transporting, sheltering, or assisting him or her to obtain employment, or encourages that illegal alien to remain in the U.S. by referring him or her to an employer or by acting as employer or agent for an employer in any way, or knowingly assists illegal aliens due to personal convictions.

Encouraging and Harboring Illegal Aliens:

It is a violation of law for any person to conceal, harbor, or shield from detection in any place, including any building or means of transportation, any illegal alien who is in the United States in violation of law. Harboring means any conduct that tends to substantially facilitate an alien to remain in the U.S. illegally. The sheltering need not be clandestine, and harboring covers aliens arrested outdoors, as well as in a building. This provision includes harboring an alien who entered the U.S. legally but has since lost his legal status.

I ran across this in a comment at Breitbart.com tonight and thought it might stimulate some spirited comments.

We need to get this to Dallas County Judge Clay Jenkins at the big protest this week.

I saw on Fox News that the evil scum bags in the ACLU, have filed a law suit to make sure each illegal alien gets a tax payer funded lawyer. I guess the law suit should be thrown out, because it sounds like it would be a felony to help them.

Your cite only says some of what is claimed. Do you have other cites?

No needle needs to be threaded, this mess is a blatant violation of law and has been mostly ignored since Reagan.

we have no laws

only cute guidelines to inflict on your political enemies when convenient

if we had laws, the law stated above would be used to arrest and jail many in the administration, as they’ve encouraged illegals to stay ... and helped get them here in the first place

Here's the law that should have brought criminal prosecutions against the Obama Regime, along with the NGO collaborators who helped it orchestrate this alien invasion.

From the "Criminal Resource Manual" on the DOJ US Attorney website [ http://www.justice.gov ]:

US Attorneys > USAM > Title 9 > Criminal Resource Manual 1907
prev | next | Criminal Resource Manual

1907 Title 8, U.S.C. § 1324(a) Offenses

Title 8, U.S.C. § 1324(a) defines several distinct offenses related to aliens....

.

.

.

Encouraging/Inducing -- Subsection 1324(a)(1)(A)(iv) makes it an offense for any person who -- encourages or induces an alien to come to, enter, or reside in the United States, knowing or in reckless disregard of the fact that such coming to, entry, or residence is or will be in violation of law.

Conspiracy/Aiding or Abetting -- Subsection 1324(a)(1)(A)(v) expressly makes it an offense to engage in a conspiracy to commit or aid or abet the commission of the foregoing offenses.
{ abet = incite or encourage }

Sherrifs should start impounding the buses used to transport them and arrest the drivers and organizers for breaking the law. That would slow things down!

Obama and Holder took Arizona to court to warn state and local leaders & police against trying to defend themselves against this US government orchestrated invasion.

I have read that it is only a misdemeanor to for an illegal alien to cross the border, but it’s a felony to interact with them? So, we excuse the criminal and blame Americans. Time to change the law and make it a felony to cross our borders illegally.

Laws are only effective if you have the power to enforce them. When the lawbreakers and the lawmakers are one and the same there is essentially no law.

If only people aiding illegals would be prosecuted. But I don’t see it happening. If the Feds don’t want local law enforcement to enforce this law then why should they enforce ANY federal law? In fact, the state should expel all federal law enforcement personnel since they aren’t doing their jobs anyway.

Thanks for looking up the official citation, Ray. No, I don't have any further citations. I just happened to run into the excerpt above in the comments at Breitbart.

The government is essentially in TREASON to the people and the Constitution. As several of the Framers remarked in the early days of our republic, we not only have a right to abolish such a wayward and oppressive government - we have a DUTY to.

As long as the people are ignorant of those laws which prevent government officials and private citizens from aiding and abetting illegal aliens, then no, nothing will happen.

It behooves us all to spread the information about these criminal codes far and wide. Put them up on Facebook. Paste them into emails to your elected reps (local, state, and federal). Call into talk shows and inform the hosts (and listeners) about them. Re-post the text and links on FR and other conservative boards. Tell your friends and neighbors. Get the word out however you can.

If you only knew how much word spreading I do. In addition to family and friends I contact my elected officials at least weekly. I even pass out copies of the Constitution that I got from the Heritage Foundation. Most people don’t take it seriously which irritates the heck out of me.

Bless you, my friend. It's my fervent hope that more and more decent Americans follow your lead.
