An agent with the Department of Homeland Security and a former immigration officer surrendered to federal authorities Wednesday after a grand jury indictment named them, as well as three others, as participants in a long-running immigration fraud scheme.
The conspiracy was allegedly orchestrated by a Los Angeles attorney who paid bribes as high as $10,000 to officials with several agencies in the Department of Homeland Security to help secure immigration benefits for aliens he was representing, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office.
