A top homeland security official has been accused in federal court of hiring multiple illegal immigrants as cleaners for her home, reports
the Associated Press.
Lorraine Henderson is the regional director of Homeland Security, Customs, and Border Protection. She is responsible for stopping illegal aliens from entering the U.S. through the port of Boston.
But, reports the AP:
[A]ccording to an affidavit, for several years Henderson employed a Brazilian housekeeper who was an illegal immigrant. She also allegedly hired two other illegal immigrants, even after fellow agents warned her it was against the law.
Henderson was arrested after one of the women wore a wire and recorded Henderson telling the woman to "be careful" because once you're deported, "you will never be back."
Henderson was arrested today and is expected to appear in court shortly.
