The chief counsel at the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement field office in Seattle has resigned after being charged with allegedly stealing identities from seven people involved in immigration proceedings. ICE said in a statement that its internal affairs office conducted the investigation.
The identity theft victims are reported to be individuals who were in various stages of immigration proceedings, the felony information document states. ICE has also detained or deported immigration activists, sparking charges that the agency is improperly targeting political opponents.
BuzzFeed News, citing documents filed in the case, reports Sanchez used personal information to defraud several institutions, including American Express, Bank of America, Capital One, Citibank, Discover, and JPMorgan Chase.
Vic Damone dead: Legendary pop singer dies aged 89
And, as if all that weren't enough, he also hosted his very own variety show called The Vic Damone Show . Damone was born in Brooklyn, New York, on June 12, 1928 to Italian immigrants from Bari, Italy.
Sanchez is scheduled to appear in court for a plea hearing Thursday morning, according to the court calendar.
The offenses allegedly took place between October 2013 and October 2017, and included an instance of forwarding a copy of part of a Chinese passport and other information from his government email address, according to court documents.
Prosecutors use a felony information document in cases where the defendant waives his right to an indictment. But in one example, prosecutors alleged Sanchez stole the name, Social Security number and birth date of a Chinese national identified only as R.H.
