Two hundred of these for US citizenship? Bargain! (Check bottom for credit)<

US immigration officer nicked for taking egg roll bribe.


Mai Nhu Nguyen, a 47-year-old immigration service officer with the US Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) has been nailed to the wall like a right slag for taking bungs.

According to an FBI press release, the Irvine, California resident was indicted on three counts of bribery by a public official, each of which "carries a statutory maximum penalty of 15 years in federal prison".

She was nicked on June 6, the feds say, for allegedly accepting a $2,200 (£1,452) backhander from some geezer wanting US citizenship; a grand from another after a green card, whatever that is; and "200 egg rolls from an immigrant seeking citizenship".


HOBNOBS
Apparently, Nguyen has worked at the USCIS's Santa Ana office for eight years or thereabouts and had the "power to approve or deny applications for immigration benefits that are submitted by immigrants".

She was expected to be "arraigned on the indictment" this past Monday (1/7/13).

Two hundred egg rolls?

I'd've wanted some Hobnobs as well.

After all, if you're gonna steal, steal big1.
