LOS ANGELES - A top federal immigration attorney and his wife were arrested Thursday on suspicion of accepting bribes from immigrants seeking to remain in the United States, according to the FBI.
U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement Assistant Chief Counsel Constantine Peter Kallas, 38, and his wife, Maria Kallas, 39, both of Alta Loma, were arrested by FBI agents at the San Manuel Indian Bingo and Casino in Highland after they allegedly accepted a $20,000 bribe from an immigrant seeking documents to stay in the country, said U.S. Attorney's Office spokesman Thom Mrozek.
They are also accused of accepting thousands of dollars from other illegal immigrants and green card holders in exchange for immigration benefits, Mrozek said.
