A woman sailor I know needs a lift from anywhere in S. Florida to anywhere in the Bah

A woman sailor I know needs a lift from anywhere in S. Florida to anywhere in the Bahamas, - Shes an accomplished sailor who has circumnavigated the globe 5-6 years ago, - Beautiful & Interesting French woman became involved with an American sailor, on his boat - sailing in to Florida & not checking into the country- (dont ask me why) so now she is not in the relationship anymore and does not want to fly out as they will find she entered illegally- She wants to go to the Bahamas & then comeback in legally- anyway if you can help her PM me & I will get you in contact with her-

If you're caught in the States with an illegal aboard you can lose your boat and more!!

So CF is a good safe place to set up felonies? Do we need a Human Trafficking Forum?

If I recall, is the first-time presence of an alien without documentation of legal entry a misdemeanor but the usual "punishment" is deportation and a black mark against being able to enter the US in the future? And is it better to assume that the alien entered legally, but perhaps overstayed her visa or her visa extension paperwork got lost? Just speculating.

Screw you sheeple. If I was there with a boat I'd feel obligated to help, and a little intrigued.

I am certainly no lawyer so take this for what it is worth. I don't believe they would check on the way out of the US. They are looking for people coming into the US. Her name would not be on a list as no one knows she is here illegally and hence no warrant.

If she gets caught on your boat, you are now in the grasp of the Police State and that's a very bad thing.

She will have to clear customs going into the Bahamas though.

Theoretically speaking, if some heroic sailor rescued her from a small boat that had been swept out to sea, would there be any basis for prosecution?

Seems to me nothing wrong morally about trying to help someone make a wrong decision she made years ago while in love right, but I suppose it could make a problem for someone if you were stopped- I personally would take her across myself, but just sold my Trawler & am boat less this side of the pound- I do have a delivery in a few months & if she has not found her way across Im happy to take that chance and give her a lift !

Perhaps give Immigration a call. Ask them what they think of Self Deportation. Maybe they would say the right thing and bless it.

It would seem to be much less risky for her to drive across the border into Mexico, then fly to Mexico City and from there to Europe/Bahamas/etc.

I'm more than a little intrigued.. and would help if I was over that side quite happily having been in a similar situation once...
but I did have a return ticket and no one jumped on me for a 5mth overstay when I did finally leave.. even tho' I was already stamped 'Gone sailed' but I then had to come back and did not clear in..

Re: A woman sailor I know needs a lift from anywhere in S. Florida to anywhere in the

I agree with Daddle. Call Immigration first. I'm sure being a beautiful and interesting French woman plays no part in others willing to do this. Naw.
But I also agree that trouble can easily await. I'm sure Ram knows this woman well and that she's a very nice person and all the things he says is accurate. But those so willing to take on something like this without really knowing her are asking for serious trouble. Get caught heading offshore to the Bahamas, (the possibility these days is more than it ever was, I have been stopped three times this year) and find out this person was running from the law instead of her boyfriend and your White Knight, Damsel saving, status won't help much.
