"Any person who . . . encourages or induces an alien to . . . reside . . . knowing or in reckless disregard of the fact that such . . . residence is . . . in violation of law, shall be punished as provided . . . for each alien in respect to whom such a violation occurs . . . fined under title 18 . . . imprisoned not more than 5 years, or both."
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 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 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.
Penalties upon conviction include criminal fines, imprisonment, and forfeiture of vehicles and real property used to commit the crime. Anyone employing or contracting with an illegal alien without verifying his or her work authorization status is guilty of a misdemeanor. Aliens and employers violating immigration laws are subject to arrest, detention, and seizure of their vehicles or property. In addition, individuals or entities who engage in racketeering enterprises that commit (or conspire to commit) immigration-related felonies are subject to private civil suits for treble damages and injunctive relief.
Recruitment and Employment of Illegal Aliens
It is unlawful to hire an alien, to recruit an alien, or to refer an alien for a fee, knowing the alien is unauthorized to work in the United States. It is equally unlawful to continue to employ an alien knowing that the alien is unauthorized to work. Employers may give preference in recruitment and hiring to a U.S. citizen over an alien with work authorization only where the U.S. citizen is equally or better qualified. It is unlawful to hire an individual for employment in the United States without complying with employment eligibility verification requirements. Requirements include examination of identity documents and completion of Form I-9 for every employee hired. Employers must retain all I-9s, and, with three days' advance notice, the forms must be made available for inspection. Employment includes any service or labor performed for any type of remuneration within the United States, with the exception of sporadic domestic service by an individual in a private home. Day laborers or other casual workers engaged in any compensated activity (with the above exception) are employees for purposes of immigration law. An employer includes an agent or anyone acting directly or indirectly in the interest of the employer. For purposes of verfication of authorization to work, employer also means an independent contractor, or a contractor other than the person using the alien labor. The use of temporary or short-term contracts cannot be used to circumvent the employment authorization verification requirements. If employment is to be for less than the usual three days allowed for completing the I-9 Form requirement, the form must be completed immediately at the time of hire.
An employer has constructive knowledge that an employee is an illegal unauthorized worker if a reasonable person would infer it from the facts. Constructive knowledge constituting a violation of federal law has been found where (1) the I-9 employment eligibility form has not been properly completed, including supporting documentation, (2) the employer has learned from other individuals, media reports, or any source of information available to the employer that the alien is unauthorized to work, or (3) the employer acts with reckless disregard for the legal consequences of permitting a third party to provide or introduce an illegal alien into the employer's work force. Knowledge cannot be inferred solely on the basis of an individual's accent or foreign appearance.
Actual specific knowledge is not required. For example, a newspaper article stating that ballrooms depend on an illegal alien work force of dance hostesses was held by the courts to be a reasonable ground for suspicion that unlawful conduct had occurred.
IT IS ILLEGAL FOR NONPROFIT OR RELIGIOUS ORGANIZATIONS to knowingly assist an employer to violate employment sanctions, REGARDLESS OF CLAIMS THAT THEIR CONVICTIONS REQUIRE THEM TO ASSIST ALIENS. Harboring or aiding illegal aliens is not protected by the First Amendment. It is a felony to establish a commercial enterprise for the purpose of evading any provision of federal immigration law. Violators may be fined or imprisoned for up to five years.
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 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.
An employer can be convicted of the felony of harboring illegal aliens who are his employees if he takes actions in reckless disregard of their illegal status, such as ordering them to obtain false documents, altering records, obstructing INS inspections, or taking other actions that facilitate the alien's illegal employment. Any person who within any 12-month period hires ten or more individuals with actual knowledge that they are illegal aliens or unauthorized workers is guilty of felony harboring. It is also a felony to encourage or induce an alien to come to or reside in the U.S. knowing or recklessly disregarding the fact that the alien's entry or residence is in violation of the law. This crime applies to any person, rather than just employers of illegal aliens. Courts have ruled that "encouraging" includes counseling illegal aliens to continue working in the U.S. or assisting them to complete applications with false statements or obvious errors. The fact that the alien is a refugee fleeing persecution is not a defense to this felony, since U.S. law and the UN Protocol on Refugees both require that a refugee must report to immigration authorities without delay upon entry to the U.S.
The penalty for felony harboring is a fine and imprisonment for up to five years. The penalty for felony alien smuggling is a fine and up to ten years' imprisonment. Where the crime causes serious bodily injury or places the life of any person in jeopardy, the penalty is a fine and up to twenty years' imprisonment. If the criminal smuggling or harboring results in the death of any person, the penalty can include life imprisonment. Convictions for aiding, abetting, or conspiracy to commit alien smuggling or harboring, carry the same penalties. Courts can impose consecutive prison sentences for each alien smuggled or harbored. A court may order a convicted smuggler to pay restitution if the alien smuggled qualifies as a victim under the Victim and Witness Protection Act. Conspiracy to commit crimes of sheltering, harboring, or employing illegal aliens is a separate federal offense punishable by a fine of up to $10,000 or five years' imprisonment.
A person or entity having knowledge of a violation or potential violation of employer sanctions provisions may submit a signed written complaint to the INS office with jurisdiction over the business or residence of the potential violator, whether an employer, employee, or agent. The complaint must include the names and addresses of both the complainant and the violator, and detailed factual allegations, including date, time, and place of the potential violation, and the specific conduct alleged to be a violation of employer sanctions. By regulation, the INS will only investigate third-party complaints that have a reasonable probability of validity. Designated INS officers and employees, and all other officers whose duty it is to enforce criminal laws, may make an arrest for violation of smuggling or harboring illegal aliens.
State and local law enforcement officials have the general power to investigate and arrest violators of federal immigration statutes without prior INS knowledge or approval, as long as they are authorized to do so by state law. There is no extant federal limitation on this authority. The 1996 immigration control legislation passed by Congress was intended to encourage states and local agencies to participate in the process of enforcing federal immigration laws. Immigration officers and local law enforcement officers may detain an individual for a brief warrantless interrogation where circumstances create a reasonable suspicion that the individual is illegally present in the U.S. Specific facts constituting a reasonable suspicion include evasive, nervous, or erratic behavior; dress or speech indicating foreign citizenship; and presence in an area known to contain a concentration of illegal aliens. Hispanic appearance alone is not sufficient. Immigration officers and police must have a valid warrant or valid employer's consent to enter workplaces or residences. Any vehicle used to transport or harbor illegal aliens, or used as a substantial part of an activity that encourages illegal aliens to come to or reside in the U.S. may be seized by an immigration officer and is subject to forfeiture. The forfeiture power covers any conveyances used within the U.S.
RICO -- Citizen Recourse
Private persons and entities may initiate civil suits to obtain injunctions and treble damages against enterprises that conspire to or actually violate federal alien smuggling, harboring, or document fraud statutes, under the Racketeer-Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (RICO). The pattern of racketeering activity is defined as commission of two or more of the listed crimes. A RICO enterprise can be any individual legal entity, or a group of individuals who are not a legal entity but are associated in fact, AND CAN INCLUDE NONPROFIT ASSOCIATIONS.
Employers who aid or abet the preparation of false tax returns by failing to pay income or Social Security taxes for illegal alien employees, or who knowingly make payments using false names or Social Security numbers, are subject to IRS criminal and civil sanctions. U.S. nationals who have suffered intentional discrimination because of citizenship or national origin by an employer with more than three employees may file a complaint within 180 days of the discriminatory act with the Special Counsel for Immigration-Related Unfair Employment Practices, U.S. Department of Justice. In additon to the federal statutes summarized, state laws and local ordinances controlling fair labor practices, workers compensation, zoning, safe housing and rental property, nuisance, licensing, street vending, and solicitations by contractors may also apply to activities that involve illegal aliens.
All of the above extracted from:
Please inform your elected officials at all levels of the government of these provisions and ask what they are going to do about enforcement? If they fail and one has the funds... initiate RICO act law suites and demand huge damages... against individal members of the government and private organizations involved in aiding and abetting illegal immigration.
America is under attack... it is being invaided by illegal aliens... massive numbers are seeking to overload our economy and government institutions in an effort to collapse our system of government. This is a type of asymmetrical war and needs to be recognized and called what it is WAR. It is time to put Mexico and all of Central America on notice ... America is no longer going to look upon the invasion as the mere migration of their poor, it will be seen as a deliberate attempt to subvert our economy and in turn our govenment.
Thank you for admitting you did not take the oath to the constitution FOR the United States OF AMERICA.
The words you repeated do not belong to any document. If you find it post it.
Do know the meaning OF vs FOR - United States vs United States of America.
RIchard you are incorrigible... there is no sense in discussing this with you any further, other than to repeat what has been said before:
Those individuals taking the oath understand there is ONLY ONE United States Constitution... and that Constitution is FOR the UNITED STATES. The Constitution 'OF' the UNITED STATES is the same as the Constitution 'FOR' the UNITED STATES...
I don't know how many Constitution's of the United States you carry around... I only know of ONE... Maybe you can Q us in on another?
However, any debate with you on this issue is senseless ... a debate in semantics not fact or reality. You have made up your mind, that those takng the oath serve some other Constitution and soveriegn; even though, those individuals will tell you directly, they serve and defend the United States Constitution, against enemies foreign and domestic... not the King of England.
What a Crock of garbage you feed others...
Excuse me but words mean everything and the lack of them can mean more. It is "the constitution for the United States of America". and nothing less so Stop wordsmithing.
Big difference lookup their codes. When we arbitrate we have to state their codes for Terms "United States" as used in Acts can mean/means (A) the United States of America; (B) the government of the United States, or (C) in the geographic sense, all fifty States, Territories, and Possessions of the United States. And their are more as they use them for their benefit. Word Magic!
Question? Is the United States a Corporation? Is a State a thing, corporation, Inc., fiction or a person? The answers are always in the governments on words. You look up the definition in a dictionary used in their times for words and phrases that were written. The Crown's version and the Esquire writer i.e.
Example:What you think is a state is in reality a corporation, in other words, a Person.
"Commonwealth of Pennsylvania is Person." 9 F. Supp 272
"Word "person" does not include state. 12 Op Atty Gen 176.
There are no states, just corporations. A corporation is an artificial entity, a fiction at law. They only exist in your mind. They are images in your mind, that speak to you. We labor, pledge our property and give our children to a fiction.
Again their words not mine.
Words Have Meaning... I posted this in a Blog several years ago.
"How strangely will the Tools of a Tyrant pervert the plain Meaning of Words!" quote, Samuel Adams.
Words have meaning... but never so clear, that a tyrant can not subvert and convert them to his purpose. Hence, for justice to prevail... a MORAL people must hold the heads of justice accountable for their words.
'Tis but the sound of fury, unleashed in the souls of tyrants... that corrupt words destroy the community of man; with the tongue men set afire civilization and bring captive millions. Words, steeped with ill will, sooner beget terror in the hearts of men than a sword. For with steel men are dispatched and soon are forgotten, but with words history is written and rewritten, defining the very soul of men and nations.
Our judicial system has become the harbinger of illiteracy... spurning common sense and the direct meaning of WORDS. At will the tyrant now rages, his words to twist the souls of men; bantering about the meaning of words, despots do spin a web of deceit, trapping the common good with gobbledygook. The wicked restrain justice and impale the righteous with words.
It is time to restore common sense... to the rhetoric of men. Justice is best served when the lexicon of man is firmly established and honored by all. Justices and men of high rank need to be clear in the use of their language; so that, none will misunderstand their point. However, it is the despot who thinks to deceive with words and his entendre, keeping the very root of his purpose and meaning hidden, from the public and common speech.
Let the lawyers be chastened and the twisted metaphor be made clear... words have meaning and they dare not change, that history may remain true to the facts and the laws of men stable in there application. Words have in them the eternal power of creation... they are the window of the soul.
By RA Nelson
Your exercise in subverting the oath of office with your play on words misses the Spirit and Intent of the law... the US Constitution is not a figment of our imagination... and when an officer of the US Government takes an oath to the Constitution it is the US Constitution they swear too... not any other. After all, we have only one Constitution. You are engaging in the work of tyrants... twisting words to mean whatever is convient to your cause... we are not fooled.
A 'State' is both a person and a corporation depending on the law and its function at the time... Corporations are treated as persons in cases of law and have been given many rights formerly associate with real persons... by our courts.

Pentagon9-11exit%20whole.jpg Don't ask Ronald but what kind of high impact plastic nose cone did this commercial airplane have. Was it something special, because it penetrated all the way thru C-Ring like bunker buster..
A very good video, worth watching
Thanks again and its good for me to know you know of this.
This subject matter and much more is currently being brought forward by the 9/11 engineers for truth. The problem I have with the way they have approach this, they are backing themselves into a Grand Jury presentation. The government will consider this information to be a National Security risk to publish.
This video and where did the towers go has been shown to members at my local VFW Post by me. Yes, they were amazed but I had the wrong guys as an audience. They did nothing with this. Now I only seek the injured and disabled vets knowing what harm is.
No longer will we approach any military officer after they let Terry Lakin be destroyed.
Security risk and gag order the whole proceedings.
At my last meeting we discussed this and too many agreed that at least this will be on record and the FBI knew of it all along and how corrupt the 9/11 Commission reporting was to the public.
Trump could resolve this in one fell swoop if he used the War Power Act like Lincoln did. Shut down the media, read them the riot act for how they can reopen and start a new with TRUTH.
People don't know collectively they can legally/lawfully make this demand of Trump.
