Man Tries To Bribe ICE To Deport His Wife

 

NEW YORK, NY - JANUARY 11:  Hundreds of immigration activists, clergy members and others participate in a protest against President Donald Trump's immigration policies in front of the Federal Building on January 11, 2018 in New York City. As the Trump administration continues to focus their attention on deportations and the building of a new wall along the Mexican and American border, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) arrests are up. From late January through August 2017, arrests by ICE were up more than 43 percent since the same period in 2016.  (Photo by Spencer Platt/Getty Images)

  There are SO many ways to get out of a bad relationship, but this is the worst way possible!  48 year old  Antonio Burgos from Portland, Oregon had his wife move here from El Salvador to be with him, but things didn’t turn out the way he wanted.   They’ve been having trouble so back in June, he tried to get a divorce, but that would take way too long, so he came up with a plan B.  he contacted an ICE agent and tried to get him to deport his wife and her daughter from a previous relationship. And he offered to bribe the Customs agent with $3,000 to get him to do it.   But the ICE agent turned him in, and Antonio was arrested for bribing a public official. He pleaded guilty last week. He was facing up to 15 years in prison and a $250,000 fine but since he took a plea, his punishment will probably be much lighter than that.   He won't be sentenced until May and he'll be in federal prison until then. —
