Section 1325 sets forth criminal offenses relating to
(1) improper entry into the United States by an alien,
(2) entry into marriage for the purpose of evading immigration laws, and
(3) establishing a commercial enterprise for the purpose of evading immigration laws.
The Illegal Immigration Reform and Immigrant Responsibility Act (IIRIRA) amended 8 U.S.C. § 1325 to
provide that an alien apprehended while entering or attempting to enter the United States at a time or
place other than as designated by immigration officers shall be subject to a civil penalty.
