Former ICE Chief Counsel Facing Prison Time For Stealing Immigrants' Identities

A former top attorney at ICE in Washington state has pleaded guilty to stealing the personal information of immigrants who were at risk of deportation, and using the data to defraud banks. Here, protesters stand outside the ICE office in Seattle during a demonstration in May.

The former ICE chief counsel — who oversaw immigration removal cases in four states — stole the identities of people who were “particularly vulnerable,” the government said.
