Illegal Border Crossing

Illegal Border Crossing Lawyer Serving New York 

The border between the United States and Canada was historically easy to cross prior to the events of 9/11. This is no longer the case. As part of its “war on terror,” the federal government has increased border security and now vigorously prosecutes all illegal crossings into America from Canada. At the Albany, New York Law Offices of Mark J. Sacco, our illegal border crossing lawyers provide comprehensive criminal defense services to clients facing federal charges for illegal entry into the U.S.

Illegal Border Crossing in Northern New York Counties

From Clinton County to the Buffalo area, border patrols across northern New York and Vermont are cracking down on the common avenues of illegal immigration: rural roads, lakes, rivers, Native American reservations and deserted fields straddling the border. While immediate deportation is common, the government will also pursue criminal charges against illegal aliens and anyone who helps them, either knowingly or unknowingly. For example, someone who mistakenly gives a ride to an illegal alien can face potentially serious federal charges.

Our federal criminal law practice handles cases involving:

  • Illegal entry without inspection
  • Illegal entry using forged or fake documents
  • Reentry of a removed alien
  • Reentry after deportation for aggravated felonies
  • Reentry after deportation for passport fraud or identity theft
  • Illegal alien smuggling
  • Harboring an illegal alien
  • Other immigration-related federal offenses
