Report: Homeland Security Officials Took Millions in Bribes to 'Look the Other Way' on Drug Cartels

A stunning case of corruption inside the Department of Homeland Security was overshadowed by headlines about Russia and Israel this past week. Yet, federal employees accepting millions of dollars in bribes to avoid doing their job, is certainly worth a look.

Hundreds of DHS employees have "looked the other way" as drugs crossed the border because cartels have made them offers they can't refuse. Other employees have sold green cards and other documents illegally. More from The New York Times:

It was not an isolated case. A review by The New York Times of thousands of court records and internal agency documents showed that over the last 10 years almost 200 employees and contract workers of the Department of Homeland Security have taken nearly $15 million in bribes while being paid to protect the nation’s borders and enforce immigration laws.

An offer that can't be refused generally has a darker side to it.

While jails are full of driving on suspended, unpaid fines, simple weed possession, oh and all the drugs they are allowing the cartels to seek....So we can be oppressed....one day everyone else will wake up and be sick of this Hippocratic backwards so called freedom and equality that so many have died for.
