"Hey - - We All Have to Eat"

News out of California is that you can obtain your citizenship for the low, low price of 200 egg rolls! The New York Post reports in the link below that an immigration officer in Santa Ana, California, has been indicted on charges of accepting bribes from applicants for citizenship and residency. In one such case, the officer accepted the egg rolls in exchange for favorable treatment of a naturalization application. Reading this article is making me hungry.

Seriously, though, there is no short cut to immigration benefits and the public should be extremely wary of anyone who is offering them something in exchange for some form of compensation. That is not the way our system (hopefully) works. Our advice to clients and potential clients is that if something seems too good to be true, it probably is. The best defense is a competent and ethical attorney.
