I am not adding more as I have heard/read a few different ways they claim they find out. I want to get an answer from a legal entity. If they don't find out, they cannot sentence someone to a 5 year bar or 10 year bar.
What's a 5-year bar? There is a 3-year bar, a 10-year bar and a bars with no waiver and permanent bars? I've never heard of a 5-year bar yet. If you want information on DHS internal procedures, you're not going to find an answer on Avvo from an immigration lawyer. Not sure where you would obtain that information other than by working for DHS.
Don't concern yourself with how, as it really isn't a very good use of your time and energy. Just know when they find out, negative ramifications are likely. Instead, you should avoid being out of status at all costs--an immigration attorney can attempt to guide you to avoid being out of status.
