See: 8 U.S. Code § 1324 - Bringing in and harboring certain aliens

(a)Criminal penalties

(1)

Any person who—

(iii)knowing or in reckless disregard of the fact that an alien has come to, entered, or remains in the United States in violation of law, conceals, harbors, or shields from detection, or attempts to conceal, harbor, or shield from detection, such alien in any place, including any building or any means of transportation;


(II)aids or abets the commission of any of the preceding acts,

shall be punished as provided in subparagraph B.



Our open border crowd alleges the above law only applies to those engaged in “smuggling” aliens across the border. But this contention is without foundation!

People subject to punishment under 8 U.S. Code § 1324 - Bringing in and harboring certain aliens do not have to be involved in smuggling to be prosecuted. Harboring can apply to “any person” who knowingly harbors an illegal entrant. SEE: UNITED STATES v. ZHENG, United States Court of Appeals,Eleventh Circuit, 2002

"In considering this appeal, we first examine the language of the statute at issue.  “As with any question of statutory interpretation, we begin by examining the text of the statute to determine whether its meaning is clear.”  Lewis v. Barnhart, 285 F.3d 1329, 1331 (11th Cir.2002);  see also Merritt v. Dillard Paper Co., 120 F.3d 1181, 1185 (11th Cir.1997) (“In construing a statute we must begin, and often should end as well, with the language of the statute itself.”).   The Appellees assert that the language of § 1324 restricts its application to individuals who are in the business of smuggling illegal aliens into the United States for employment or those who employ illegal aliens in “sweatshops.”   We disagree.  Section 1324 applies to “[a]ny person” who knowingly harbors an illegal alien.   Although § 1324 and § 1324a appear to cover some of the same conduct, “the fact that Congress has enacted two sections encompassing similar conduct but prescribing different penalties does not compel a conclusion that one statute was meant to limit, repeal, or affect enforcement of the other.”  United States v. Kim, 193 F.3d 567, 573 (2d Cir.1999).   The Supreme Court has noted that statutes may “overlap” or enjoy a “partial redundancy,” United States v. Batchelder, 442 U.S. 114, 118, 99 S.Ct. 2198, 2201, 60 L.Ed.2d 755 (1979), and yet be “fully capable of coexisting.”  Id. at 122, 99 S.Ct. at 2203.   We agree with the Second Circuit's analysis of §§ 1324 and 1324a that “nothing in the language of these two sections ․ preclude their coexistence.”  Kim, 193 F.3d at 573.   The plain language of § 1324 does not limit its reach to certain specific individuals, and thus, the Government properly charged the Appellees with violating this statute."



The irrefutable fact is, any public servant who has taken an oath to uphold the laws of the United States, who “conceals, harbors, or shields from detection, or attempts to conceal, harbor, or shield from detection” can be prosecuted under 8 U.S. § 1324 (a)

It’s time for the Trump Administration to go after public servants who flaunt the law, especially those in New York, California, Oregon and Iowa!

American citizens are sick and tired of being made into tax slaves and forced to finance the personal economic needs of millions of foreigners who have invaded America’s borders.

Agree 100% and have been saying this for years . We all know why this hasn't been addressed in the past, here's hoping this administration pursues this channel.:thumbsup:

I think anyone regardless of rank or position of power should be held accountable for violating federal law.
Time to drain the swamp.

This would include any builder, landscaper, cleaning company, pool contractors, restaurant owner and on and on who hires one of the illegals. Talk about putting America back to work!?!

Agree, 100% One of the major reasons our borders have been invaded is because unpatriotic employees see they can increase their profits by hiring illegal entrants off the books, below the going wage, while they know the illegal entrants will not pay taxes on their earned wages.

These employers need to be sent to jail for the suffering honorable employers have gone through, many having lost their businesses, because of unpatriotic money hungry dirt bags.

Sounds good but not sure blacks or whites are going to work out in the hot summer sun like Mexicans for 11 bucks an hour.

We are not talking about the job you mention. We are talking about jobs in the construction trades and how American Citizens, Whites and Blacks, have been squeezed out of this job market by illegal entrants who compete by working off the books, below the going wage and do not pay taxes on their earned wages. And when they injure themselves or get a cold, they overwhelm our emergency rooms to get medical attention and eventually bankrupt them. And this does not even take into account how they have overwhelmed our public schools with their children, which American Citizens pay taxes to have their children attend, not illegal entrant's children.
