Immigration officer was allegedly bribed with cash, egg rolls

An immigration officer has been indicted on charges that she took cash and egg rolls as bribes from immigrants seeking citizenship and green cards.

Federal prosecutors say 47-year-old Mai Nhu Nguyen was indicted Wednesday on three counts of solicitation of a bribe by a public official.

Prosecutors say Nguyen took 200 egg rolls from a citizenship applicant and received $1,000 and $2,200 bribes from two other immigrants since 2011.

Nguyen worked as an officer for U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services in Santa Ana where she reviewed immigrants' applications for benefits.

Nguyen was arrested June 6 and released on a $20,000 bond. She is set to be arraigned July 1.

A message left for an attorney for Nguyen was not immediately returned.
