Companies accounts FROZEN, states accounts FROZEN so yeah, give it a whirl and see how that plays out...
Lol no the IRS has a process they must follow first.

The IRS would have to first notify 40 million people of an audit and then theyd follow through with subsequent notices and then a levy notice would be sent to banks and garnishment notices to employers.

All of this^ would take a long time.

Even after that, the state could have the banks and employers respond with a letter saying take it up with Sacramento.

By the point would have been made. States have weapons too.

Good luck going after 40 million people.

Instead of Aiding & Abetting, this law is much more applicable:

8 U.S. Code 1324 - Bringing in and harboring certain aliens



Harboring -- Subsection 1324(a)(1)(A)(iii) makes it an offense for any person who -- knowing or in reckless disregard of the fact that an alien has come to, entered, or remains in the United States in violation of law, conceals harbors, or shields from detection, or attempts to conceal, harbor, or shield from detection, such alien in any place, including any building or any means of transportation.


Penalties -- The basic statutory maximum penalty for violating 8 U.S.C. 1324(a)(1)(i) and (v)(I) (alien smuggling and conspiracy) is a fine under title 18, imprisonment for not more than 10 years, or both. With regard to violations of 8 U.S.C. 1324(a)(1)(ii)-(iv) and (v)(ii), domestic transportation, harboring, encouraging/inducing, or aiding/abetting, the basic statutory maximum term of imprisonment is 5 years, unless the offense was committed for commercial advantage or private financial gain, in which case the maximum term of imprisonment is 10 years. In addition, significant enhanced penalties are provided for in violations of 8 U.S.C. 1324(a)(1) involving serious bodily injury or placing life in jeopardy. Moreover, if the violation results in the death of any person, the defendant may be punished by death or by imprisonment for any term of years. The basic penalty for a violation of subsection 1324(a)(2) is a fine under title 18, imprisonment for not more than one year, or both, 8 U.S.C. 1324(a)(2)(A). Enhanced penalties are provided for violations involving bringing in criminal aliens, 8 U.S.C. 1324(a)(2)(B)(i), offenses done for commercial advantage or private financial gain, 8 U.S.C. 1324(a)(2)(B)(ii), and violations where the alien is not presented to an immigration officer immediately upon arrival, 8 U.S.C. 1324(a)(2)(B)(iii). A mandatory minimum three year term of imprisonment applies to first or second violations of 1324(a)(2)(B)(i) or (B)(ii). Further enhanced punishment is provided for third or subsequent offenses.

Unless your side tries terrorism; you DON'T have any weapons. Period.

Word is most cops are waiting for the word to start arresting ANY known illegal alien AND those people who shelter their kind.

I worked in law enforcement and know plenty of people who still do and none of them are interested in arresting people whose only crime is coming into the country illegally, it's a lot of paperwork and doesn't make the community safer because first generation immigrants commit fewer crimes than anyone else.

I think they would call it a Rebellion, and it seems that you believe on the right has weapons or knows how to use them, so much confusion there
Some one is yanking your chain, no such word is being awaited and it is not going to happen.
