A top USA immigration official has been charged with stealing immigrants' identities

The lawyer was caught emailing himself personal information from immigrants in order to steal their identities

Top attorney for ICE Seattle office charged...

A U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement attorney has resigned and faces federal charges he stole immigrants' identities and used the information to get credit cards.

Sanchez resigned effective February 12, the day the information-a federal charging document-was filed in the Western District of Washington.

A charging document was filed Monday in U.S. District Court which, according to court rules, is a type of document that can only be filed when a defendant agrees to waive a right to be indicted by a grand jury - typically a move associated with a plea agreement.

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials say they are focusing on "individuals who pose a threat to national security, public safety and border security".

Federer to try make history in Rotterdam
Between 2013 and 2016, Federer had struggled to win even one Grand Slam title and was even written off by many. He reached the semis in the Sofia Open last week, only to suffer elimination to Bosnian qualifier Mirza Basic.

According to the document, Sanchez allegedly stole the identities of seven people who were involved in "various stages of immigration proceedings" and used them to obtain money and property by defrauding several financial institutions, including Capital One, Citibank, JP Morgan, Bank of America and American Express.

Rather than filing an indictment, Sanchez's charges were announced in an information. In one case, Sanchez sent an energy bill, Chinese passport and US permanent resident card from his ICE email account to a personal Yahoo email account.

Raphael Sanchez, ICE's chief counsel for the western Washington field office, was caught using his work email to send a Chinese immigrant's personal information - including a permanent residency card and passport - to his personal account, those records state.

Breitbart Texas reached out to ICE officials in Seattle for more information about the case. Sanchez is scheduled to enter a plea Thursday.
