A Mexican man who allegedly used a false document to become a U.S. Border Patrol agent was charged Friday with smuggling illegal immigrants through his patrol area in eastern San Diego County.

Oscar Antonio Ortiz, 28, and another Border Patrol agent this year allowed groups of as many as 50 migrants to cross into California, charging $300 per person, according to the criminal complaint.

Ortiz, authorities allege, is a Tijuana-born Mexican citizen who used a copy of a Chicago man's birth certificate with his employment application in 2001.

This is very very bad! This man has not only stolen the identity of an american in order to falsify his status, but he was able to get a job working for Home Land Security.
Where is the security background checks? This is just a nail in the coffin proving that Americans are less secure than the US Goverment would lead us to be.
Note, There is reportedly at least one more illegal immigrant that is working for the Border Patrol

Does not surprise me that is happening. It is a known fact that many of the illegals get their IDs from state employees who are from Mexico also which is similar to smuggling them since it helps them get false IDs.
