The POSTED PENALTY for Illegally Crossing the Border



ALL Current ILLEGAL ALIENS GUILTY OF A $5000 FINE

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.

WARNING:
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.

Here is the text of Title 19, USC 1459 FEDERAL LAWS: Title 19, USC § 1459 Section (f) and (g). Reporting requirements for individuals (f) Civil penalty. Any individual who violates any provision of subsection (e) of this section is liable for a civil penalty of $5,000 for the first violation, and $10,000 for each subsequent violation. (g) Criminal penalty. In addition to being liable for a civil penalty under subsection (f) of this section, any individual who intentionally violates any provision of subsection (e) of this section is, upon conviction, liable for a fine of not more than $5,000, or imprisonment for not more than 1 year, or both.
Illegal aliens that are apprehended are returned to their homeland under the Department of Homeland Security's "Catch and Return" policy with no payment of the $5,000 fine. Many will make the journey back across the border at a later date which means they are subject to the initial $5,000 fine plus a $10,000 fine for each additional crossing. Some are caught and return on numerous occasions until they make it through. Every illegal alien apprehension, to include multiple apprehensions of the same individual, are on record. Let's assume that an illegal alien has made 3 trips across the border. That individual's fines would total $25,000 ($5,000 first offense, $10,000 each for the 2nd and 3rd.). Under this bill, the individual will only be required to pay the initial fine of $5,000. This bill actually provides an amnesty for the individual's 2nd and 3rd fines!
See Catch and Return Policy here: http://www.ccis-ucsd.org/news/WSJ02-21-06.pdf
The $5,000 fine for the first offense and $10,000 fine for subsequent offenses have not been enforced. The additional $1500 is a processing fee. The cost for citizenship to those who violate our immigration laws is a fine of $5,000 and processing fee of $1500. Had enough? Let's kill this bill and secure our borders. Let's demand that the border fence be built as required per the Secure Fence Act LAST YEAR.Lets tell Congress to ENFORCE the REAL ID ACT Passed in 2005 !!! Lets tell Congress to COMPLY with THEIR PROMISE OF NO MORE AMNESTIES !!!
