Houston Alien Smuggling Lawyers
Penalty for Smuggling Illegal Aliens
Alien smuggling is a serious problem in Texas and other border states, including Arizona and California. Immigration crime charges may be brought against those people who assist non-citizens who lack visas or permanent residency documentation in crossing the border illegally in any way, such as:
- Conspiring to smuggle aliens into the United States
- Transporting illegal aliens
- Facilitating illegal border crossing by undocumented aliens
- Harboring illegal aliens
- Encouraging or inducing illegal immigration
- Hiring undocumented aliens
Law enforcement of immigration crimes sometimes seems to follow political waves, with agencies becoming more vigorous in pursuit of offenders in response to a particular climate of public sentiment. Were you charged with alien smuggling after you unknowingly picked up a hitchhiker or after your truck, when crossing the border into Laredo or El Paso, was found to contain a hidden alien on top, underneath or hiding inside a camper compartment? If so, you need an experienced lawyer's vigorous representation beginning right away.
