Is Illegal Entry A Misdemeanor?

Illegal entry is a misdemeanor crime that can be charged as a felony if it is repeated after being deported. A person who enters the U.S. without permission of the immigration authorities is inadmissible. This means that if the person became eligible for a green card or other immigration status, he or she would be ineligible to adjust status within the United States.

If you have been charged with illegal entry, consult with our San Antonio immigration lawyers as soon as possible. The sooner we can investigate your case and build a strong defense on your behalf, the better.

What is Illegal Entry?

Improper entry can include:

  • Entering or attempting to enter the United States at any time or place other than one designated by U.S. immigration officers (in other words, away from a border inspection point or other port of entry)
  • Eluding examination or inspection by U.S. immigration officers (people have tried everything from digging tunnels to hiding in the trunk of a friend’s car)
  • Attempting to enter or obtain entry to the United States through willfully false or misleading representation or willful concealment of a material fact (which might include, for example, lying on a visa application or buying a false green card)
