Santa Ana Immigration Officer Took Cash, Egg Rolls As Bribes

Santa Ana Immigration Officer Took Cash, Egg Rolls As Bribes

An immigration officer based in Santa Ana, CA, took thousands of dollars in bribes and 200 egg rolls, from applicants seeking citizenship and green cards. Mai Nhu Nguyen, 47, of Irvine, was arrested June 6 after accepting a $2,000 bribe from an immigrant who was seeking U.S. citizenship.

In 2011, Nguyen allegedly solicited and took a $1,100 bribe from an immigrant seeking a green card and 200 egg rolls from an immigrant seeking citizenship. Nguyen had the power to approve or deny applications for immigration benefits, prosecutors said. She worked out of the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services office in Santa Ana for the last eight years.

Nguyen was free on $20,000 bond and will be arraigned July 1. Each count of bribery by the public official is punishable by up to 15 years in federal prison.
