Misprision of Felony
…or, 18 USC 4
Here is the citation:
Whoever, having knowledge of the actual commission of a felony cognizable by a court of the United States, conceals and does not as soon as possible make known the same to some judge or other person in civil or military authority under the United States, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than three years, or both.
This offense, however, requires active concealment of a known felony rather than merely failing to report it.“
This is from the Wiki on this subject.
Now, if the United States government, which has a clear chain of authority, knows of cases of felonious entry (Illegal entry is not a felony, but committing ANY crime while illegally in the country makes it so), and they not only fail to actively prosecute and at least, deport those individuals which it DOES know about, THEN the same Government engages in actions intended to cover up and/or relieve those felons of their criminal responsibility, is the Government and it’s agents/actors criminally liable for Misprision of Felony?
