The immigration officer, 47-year-old Mai Nhu Nguyen, was then indicted on bribery charges by federal prosecutors Wednesday. According to the charges, Nguyen accepted 200 egg rolls from one applicant and $1,000 and $2,200 from two others.

Prior to her arrest, Nguyen worked in Santa Ana, Calif. for the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services. Part of her job was reviewing the applications of immigrants for consideration of possible benefits.
