Since the events of 9/11, the U.S. border with Canada is more closely monitored by immigration enforcement authorities.

Smuggling Illegal Aliens Carries Serious Federal Charges
Whether they are a family member, friend or a stranger, the transport of an illegal alien over the Canadian border or anywhere else in New York is a federal criminal defense. If you are caught with an illegal alien in your car or assist or encourage one to enter the U.S. illegally, you can face up to 10 years in prison.
It is important to know that regardless of whether you knowingly helped the person cross or merely acted with careless disregard for their immigration status, the federal government will not hesitate to prosecute you to the fullest extent of the law.
