Hundreds of DHS employees have "looked the other way" as drugs crossed the border because cartels have made them offers they can't refuse. Other employees have sold green cards and other documents illegally. More from The New York Times:
It was not an isolated case. A review by The New York Times of thousands of court records and internal agency documents showed that over the last 10 years almost 200 employees and contract workers of the Department of Homeland Security have taken nearly $15 million in bribes while being paid to protect the nation’s borders and enforce immigration laws.
Instead of carrying out a thorough inquiry, Mr. Lee solicited and received about $13,000 in bribes and other gifts from the businessman and his relatives in return for making the “immigration issue go away,” court records show.
Mr. Lee, an agent with Homeland Security Investigations at Immigration and Customs Enforcement, filed a report saying: “Subject was suspected of human trafficking. No evidence found and victim statement contradicts. Case closed. No further action required.”

Border Patrol Union: Agents Ordered to Release Criminal Aliens, Illegal Immigrants
by Lana Shadwick6 Feb 2016
During the podcast, Shawn Moran, the spokesperson and vice president of the NBPC union, reported to border patrol agents and other listeners that Agent Dean Mandel of the Buffalo Sector, and NBPC President Brandon Judd, had testified before two different congressional committees this week.
Judd reported that agents are told to just take the illegal immigrant’s basic information and note that they are in the country, and then just let “them walk out the door to their destinations in the United States.” They do not give them a notice to appear at deportation hearings. However, Judd testified that among border agents, these notices are referred to as “notices to disappear.”
With the Obama administration aiding and abiding illegal criminals, it is only natural that more DHS and contractor employees would turn to criminal acts.
