Illegal Immigrants Arrested In Bribery Case

ALBUQUERQUE — Four Mexican nationals have been ordered held without bond after they were arrested in connection with a bribery case involving the illegal purchase of resident alien cards.

Special agents with the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement and the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives made the arrests Saturday as part of a six-month joint investigation.

Luis Daniel Miramontes-Morales, 44, is accused of paying $12,000 in cash to a federal agent he believed was a corrupt government employee in exchange for four green cards.

His wife, sister and brother-in-law are charged with illegally entering the United States.

The four drove from Colorado – where they had been living – to Albuquerque on Saturday to pick up their green cards. Instead, they were arrested by federal agents.
