Can a MA Police Officer be in any legal trouble for dating an Illegal Immigrant?

Asked 12 months ago - Beverly, MA

I dont want to put him through any trouble with his PD. I know some lawyers like to use the "Harboring an Illegal" but I would not want to get him into any trouble for "looking the other way" when it came to my legal status. Is there Legally anything wrong with dating an Immigrant? I have an overstayed J-1 visa. thanks for the help
