      some fines, not much. Why do you ask? You seem very miserable. I think 'americans' like you, acelaw, HWIntern must be rounded up, nutered/castrated and deported to Liberia.

        Penalties

        Penalties for knowingly hiring or continuing to employ or, in some cases, recruiting or referring an alien unauthorized to work in the U.S. include the following fines:
        first offense, $250-$2,000 per unauthorized alien;
        second offense, $2,000-$5,000 per unauthorized alien;
        third offense, $3,000-$10,000 per unauthorized alien.
        Employers found engaging in a "pattern of practice" may face the steep fines (up to $3,000 for each unauthorized alien, even on the first offense) and even imprisonment.

        In addition, "paperwork" violations, where an employer fails to complete or maintain I-9 Forms for all employees hired after November 5, 1986, carry fines ranging from $100-$1,000 per employee regardless of whether the employee was unauthorized or not.

        The government can and has charged employers and their managers with crimes relating to hiring unauthorized workers, and these crimes often carry penalties including 5 years or more in federal prison and substantial fines. Unlawful "harboring" can range from assisting a known illegal alien to enter the U.S. to encouraging someone to reside in the U.S. with "reckless disregard" for the person?s illegality. Other federal crimes include: transporting, housing, and/or knowingly hiring 10 or more aliens with the actual knowledge that the aliens were brought illegally to the United States; making, providing, using or accepting false documents; and using false social security numbers.
