Can a U.S. Citizen get in trouble for knowing "first hand" that a person is an illegal immigrant (expired Visa) and not turning them in (in California, if it matters)? -If so, can you provide reference to it?

Hello, my name is Judith. Thank you for this opportunity to answer your questions.

There is no legal obligation for you to report anyone who is here in the US without documentation.

There is no law on that. Just like there is no law on such a thing.

There is only a law that says it is unlawful to employ or hide an illegal alien from authorities.

There are over 11 million illegals in the US, the police could never handle all the reports of people who are here illegally!!!
