What Are Federal Crimes?
While states can create and enforce any type of law that is constitutional, federal law only outlines specific types of crimes. These crimes involve national/federal interest and/or criminal activity that crosses state borders.
Federal law covers:
- Any crime committed on federal land or involving federal officers
- Crimes in which the offender physically crosses state lines
- A crime in which the conduct crosses state lines, such as criminal operations having offenders and/or victims in multiple states
- Crimes related to immigration and customs
