I heard this story from a social worker. This guy had an illegal Mexican girlfriend living with him. Apparently a very pretty one. The police were looking for her to arrest her for something, then of course to deport her. So, when they went to his house to collect her, he lied to the police and said he didn't know where she was. Then, same to the social worker. And the welfare office too. How much of this is a crime? And are you really expected in America to shop out the ones you live with, like the soviets used to demand? What would you have told the police and the social worker? Also, is it a crime to lie to the police? Even if it is to protect yours?
