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
