This is the kind of garbage that goes on in our legal system.

A government attorney who posed as an immigration judge and accepted thousands of dollars in bribes from illegal immigrants was convicted Tuesday in Los Angeles of federal corruption charges, the U.S. attorney's office said.

A U.S. District Court jury found Constantine Peter Kallas, assistant chief counsel at the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement office in Los Angeles, guilty of bribery, fraud, conspiracy, identity theft and obstruction of justice.

Prosecutors said Kallas accepted bribes of as much as $20,000 in exchange for helping get benefits for illegal immigrants, some of whom were already in deportation proceedings.

All the traitors who have aided the criminal invaders must be held accountable!

Yes, money talks. Some of the Border Patrol agents in Texas have been caught with their hand in the cookie jar. What a mess!

"Transnational criminal organizations are doing all they can to infiltrate CBP through our hiring initiatives," Tomsheck told the subcommittee.

The Associated Press reported last year that four applicants for border protection jobs were not hired when polygraph tests and background checks confirmed they were infiltrators from drug trafficking operations.

Since 2003, 129 customs officers and Border Patrol agents have been arrested on corruption charges, said Tom Frost, the Department of Homeland Security's assistant inspector general for investigations. That figure included the northern border and other ports of entry.

Agents from U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and other federal agencies on Friday arrested a U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officer while she was on duty at the Paso Del Norte Port of Entry... She is accused of knowingly allowing loads of marijuana to pass through her port of entry lanes without inspection.
