US immigration officer accepts egg roll bribe for green card.

An egg roll bribe isn't supposed to work in America. You expect that kind of thing to work in China, but not America. Mr. Nguyen really needs to step up his bribe game if America is to be taken seriously. You never see a Russian official take a bribe for less than 200,000 rubles. It's just good business. Mr. Nguyen's best bribe? A measly $2,200. Have some fucking pride in what you do man. This is America. 

Via AP: An immigration officer has been indicted on charges that she took bribes in cash and egg rolls from immigrants seeking citizenship and green cards. Federal prosecutors say 47-year-old Mai Nhu Nguyen was indicted by a grand jury on 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 on 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.
