ICE Director Asks DOJ to Consider Alien Smuggling Charges Against California

Acting ICE Director Thomas D. Homan had some harsh words for California, the new sanctuary state. First, he tells that he is moving a greater number of enforcement officers into California to do the job that California refuses to do and secondly to warn them that he is looking into  8 USC 1324 to see if applies to California, because if it does, officials in the Golden State could be thrown into prison for shielding illegal aliens.

8 USC 1324

Pay close attention to (iii)

(a)Criminal penalties


(A)Any person who—


knowing that a person is an alien, brings to or attempts to bring to the United States in any manner whatsoever such person at a place other than a designated port of entry or place other than as designated by the Commissioner, regardless of whether such alien has received prior official authorization to come to, enter, or reside in the United States and regardless of any future official action which may be taken with respect to such alien;

knowing or in reckless disregard of the fact that an alien has come to, entered, or remains in the United States in violation of law, transports, or moves or attempts to transport or move such alien within the United States by means of transportation or otherwise, in furtherance of such violation of law;

knowing or in reckless disregard of the fact that an alien has come to, entered, or remains in the United States in violation of law, conceals, harbors, or shields from detection, or attempts to conceal, harbor, or shield from detection, such alien in any place, including any building or any means of transportation;

encourages or induces an alien to come to, enter, or reside in the United States, knowing or in reckless disregard of the fact that such coming to, entry, or residence is or will be in violation of law; or


engages in any conspiracy to commit any of the preceding acts, or

aids or abets the commission of any of the preceding acts,
shall be punished as provided in subparagraph (B)
If this law can be applied to sanctuary cities, it will send a chill up the spine of any official who facilitates the harboring of illegal aliens , including most of the California legislature. What should also scare them is the minimum penalty is five years in prison…per illegal.
Homan said:
“Well look if he thinks he’s protecting the immigrant community, he’s doing quite the opposite, because if you think ICE is going away, we’re not,”

“There’s no sanctuary from federal law enforcement, as a matter of fact, we’re in the process now, I’m going to significantly increase our enforcement presence in California. We’re already doing it. We’re going to detail additional enforcement assets to California.”

“California better hold on tight – they’re about to see a lot more special agents. A lot more deportation orders in the state of California.”

“If the politicians in California don’t want to protect their communities, then ICE will.”

Kick back and relax, it could get interesting.
