    A conviction for knowingly hiring illegal aliens, a Class B misdemeanor under federal law, carries a maximum penalty of six months in prison and a $3,000 fine for each unauthorized worker, plus other possible fines. A conviction for harboring or concealing illegal immigrants carries a maximum penalty of five years and/or a $250,000 fine.
