Handy Pratama Prabaswara | Dr. Bambang Waluyo 
Abstract: The juridical basis regarding the regulation of traffic in and out of foreigners in Indonesia is contained in the Immigration Law, which establishes certain obligations and limitations. The purpose of this research is to find out and study the implementation of law enforcement against immigration crimes based on the Immigration Law and Criminal Procedure Law and to find out how to improve the role and function of Civil Servant Investigator (PPNS) law enforcement in law enforcement in the immigration sector. This research is a normative juridical study, using a descriptive analytical approach. It was concluded that every foreign citizen who deliberately abuses or carries out activities that are not in accordance with the intent and purpose of granting the residence permit granted to him may be subject to imprisonment and a fine under the Law on Immigration. Meanwhile, to arrive at the imposition of criminal sanctions against foreigners who perpetrate criminal acts of immigration through a process in accordance with the provisions of the Criminal Procedure Code, it is necessary to base judges' considerations in making decisions. To improve the role and function of PPNS law enforcement in law enforcement in the immigration sector, these obstacles must be overcome by means of such as determining the priority scale in carrying out investigative tasks; giving motivation; create comprehensive immigration PPNS education standards; conduct outreach on immigration issues in collaboration with related agencies; coordinate; and increase surveillance and prudence.
