If I am not mistaken...
The Justice Department can investigate instances of violation of federal law.
"A person (including a group of persons, business, organization or local government) commits a federal felony when he:
If upon investigation, an agency of the Justice Department finds violations of immigration law, its duty is to move forward with arrest of the suspects involved, the charging of them with a crime, arraignment, prosecution and trial, and if a conviction is obtained, sentencing.
- assists an alien whom he should reasonably know is illegally in the U.S. or who lacks employment authorization, by transporting, sheltering, or assisting him to obtain employment,
- encourages that alien to remain in the U.S., by referring him to an employer, by acting as employer or agent for an employer in any way, or
- knowingly assists illegal aliens due to personal convictions.
- Penalties upon conviction include criminal fines, imprisonment, and forfeiture of vehicles and real property used to commit the crime." (Federation for American Immigrant Reform; FAIR)
If someone interferes with that process they can be charged with criminal obstruction of Justice.
This doesn't need to be done in every case found, but can be done enough to impact the convention that it is ok to violate immigration laws and statutes.
Does the Justice Department need to be notified of its duty? Do they need to be nudged? Do they not act because it is not politically expedient to do so?
Should the government's employers direct them to move aggressively on this?
That would be "WE" the People, would it not?
