Penalties for Smuggling Illegal Immigrants

Illegal immigrants are commonly smuggled from Haiti, Cuba, and the Bahamas into Florida. Many of our clients believe they are rescuing illegal immigrants from the tyranny of their home country. However, depending on the circumstances, you could face federal charges and serious penalties.

Our clients are known among their families and peers as heroes. In fact, many illegal immigrants who actually make it to U.S. soil (and are not caught at sea) will be granted asylum and permitted to stay here because they would be persecuted at home. Yet our clients are facing severe criminal penalties for their actions.

Smuggling illegal immigrants penalties are usually based on a number of factors:

  • Was the smuggling carried out for profit?
  • How much money was involved?
  • How many people were involved?
