Yes. It is also illegal to deal with illegal aliens on an independent contractor basis.

For any number of illegal alien employees, all applicable business licenses are suspended. For the second offense, the business licenses are permanently revoked and the proprietor or company may apply for new licenses. For a third offense, the business licenses are revoked "forever" and the proprietor or company may never again be licensed in the state.

Any company signing a contract with the State of Alabama must be certified to not employ illegal aliens and that contract is nullified if the company is later found to employ a single illegal alien.

It is also illegal to deduct wages paid to illegal aliens for the purposes of Alabama state taxes and the penalty is 10 times the amount of the improper deduction.

Also, any U.S. citizen who is terminated or not hired by an employer who employs illegal aliens can sue for discrimination and, if successful, the employer must also pay that citizen's legal fees.

I think it is a federal crime to offer services to an illegal alien, not sure if that bill passed or not...

The law, which takes effect on 1 September, also make it a crime to give an illegal immigrant a ride in a car.AddendumI would like to add that your vehicle would also be subject to civil forfeiture (i.e. seized by the police and sold at public auction with the state of Alabama keeping all the proceeds).

It depends on how many illegal u were caught with. Also if you were in a organized crime.

There will be no statute of limitations. The marriage is illegal and as long as it is acted upon, the crime continues.

Generallythey will serve their sentence and once that is done they are deported. If as an illegal alien you commit a crime you are still tried and sentence just like a citizen.

No. A crime is something that is illegal. Robbery is an illegal crime.

It is illegal- and a very serious crime in Alabama- for a 14 yr old and an 18 yr old to have sex. Dating in and of itself with that age difference is simply a very bad idea.

A U.S. citizen can be sentenced to federal prison for conspiring with a foreigner to commit immigration fraud by marrying "for papers only" and attempting to sponsor a foreigner for citizenship when the marriage is not legitimate. Simply marrying a foreigner is not a crime. Marrying a foreigner and applying for citizenship is not a crime when the marriage is legitimate. Harboring an illegal alien in your home is technically a crime under federal law, but no one has ever been prosecuted for that.

Extremely high. Why? Because an illegal immigrant breaks the law in the first place coming to a country illegally. Also, if you had to go to court for an "illegal" action, there obviously going to find out your illegal since there will be no documents of you #1, and #2, any normal citizen would go to jail if they do a crime, however, if an illegal alien commits a crime, they get deported.

Yes, as well as being a FEDERAL CRIME, it is immoral and destructive to the country. The legal alien also risks revocation of their legal status and deportation. If the illegal doesn't care enough to do things legally, who the heck wants them here? What kind of citizen (other than selfish, greedy and irresponsible) will they be?

Marriage Fraud is a Federal Crime with maximum penalty of five years imprisonment and a fine up to $250,000. It is a felony and anyone convicted of this crime is considered a convicted felon.

Cannabis is already illegal. Making cannabis illegal increases crime rates because every time someone lights a joint, they commit a crime.

They will be just married to the card holder; that will not help the illegal in any way, and could have a bearing on whether the card holder can get citizenship (assisting a person they know to be committing a crime, for example).

No. It is illegal for an alien without legal status to be physically present in the United States. Although there is an old federal law the makes it a crime to aid and abet an illegal alien that is already present in the US, reportedly, no one has ever been prosecuted under that law. Recently, some US states have passed laws making it a crime to house or transport an illegal alien, whatever risk there is in doing these acts is not affected by whether you are married to the person or not. Perhaps the biggest risk related to this situation would be attempting to bring your spouse across the border into the United States without a visa. This is the most criminal liability you could be exposed to as the spouse of an illegal alien. Other than that, there is no residency or citizenship requirement for marriage in the United States and, generally, American citizens are free to marry whomever they please and to remain married to them. The most notable exception is marriage to someone of the same sex, which currently cannot be used as the basis for a green card application.

Any marriage strictly for this purpose violates a federal law. If this is suspect, the alien may be removed from the country, pending investigation. See: "Immigration Marriage Fraud Amendments of 1986"

No. You must be an adult, not have been convicted of a felony or any crime of violence against a domestic partner. You cannot have been legally found to be mentally incompetent, wanted for arrest for a crime, a drug addict or illegal alien.

No, it is not a verb. Crime is a noun, meaning illegal activity.

In Alabama, a crime scene investigator can expect to have a salary of an average of about 53,000 dollars. Most crime scene investigators work for either the state or municipalities.

Yes, it is illegal to confess to a crime you did not commit. You can be charged with perjury, false statements and obstructing an investigation.

Enough money to buy it. <><><><> In the US, you also need to be old enough, not have been convicted of a crime that is a felony, or a crime of domestic violence, not have been adjudged to be mentally incompetent, not be a drug addict, not be an illegal alien, a fugitive from justice, etc.
