Defendant's convictions for encouraging or inducing aliens to enter the U.S. is affirmed where: 1) the district court did not err in including "to help" in the definition of "encourage" in the jury instructions; 2) the trial evidence established that defendant was more than a mere passive boat driver; 3) 18 U.S.C. section 1327 required only that defendant knew the alien he aided or assisted was inadmissible at some point before the alien sought to enter the U.S.
