Illegal Entry Into the U.S. is a Felony subject to a $5,000 fine, or imprisonment for no more than 1 year, or both.
The law has been confirmed. It does, indeed, exist. Illegal Aliens are ALREADY subject to a $5,000 fine. Why should we trust that the government will... enforce THIS NEW fine when they have ignored the one already in effect? Why do they have to write A NEW LAW, when one already exists? Every illegal alien in the US is already subject to a $5,000 fine.
The $5,000 fine for entering the country illegally is already in existence under Title 19, USC 1459. The $5,000 fine is for a first offense. Each subsequent offense carries a fine of $10,000. There is also a criminal penalty of up to one year in prison for violation of this code. There are signs posted on the US/Mexico border in both English and Spanish that clearly state the following.
ALL PERSONS AND VEHICLES MUST ENTER THE UNITED STATES AT A DESIGNATED PORT OF ENTRY ONLY. THIS IS NOT A DESIGNATED PORT OF ENTRY. ANY PERSON OR VEHICLE ENTERING AT THIS POINT IS IN VIOLATION OF TITLE 19 USC 1459 AND OR 19 USC 1433 AND IS SUBJECT TO A $5,000 PENALTY.
