Its a Federal crime for an alien to be found in or attempt to enter the United States after being deported. The punishment depends on why the alien was deported, as well as prior convictions. If an alien was deported for an aggravated felony, the maximum sentence is 20 years prison. Whether a prior offense qualifies as an aggravated felony generally depends on the length of the sentence imposed. The sentence imposed is the sentence on the original charge, not any violation of probation sentence.
One way to determine if a prior offense qualifies as a crime of violence is if the sentence imposed was at least one year in jail. A conviction for Florida state court possession of cocaine is an aggravated felony. There are enhancements based on the prior aggravated felony conviction.
An alien may collaterally attack the legality of the prior deportation. You may argue that the deportation was the result of a fundamentally unfair deportation proceeding and the you were deprived of judicial review of the proceeding.
8 USC 1324 makes it a crime to harbor an illegal alien. If the offense is committed for the purpose of commercial advantage or making money, the defendant is facing up to 10 years prison. This could include anyone employing and housing an illegal alien.
