According to the Associated Press:  “One immigration agent was accused of running an Internet pornography business and enjoying an improper relationship with an informant. Another let an informant smuggle in a group of illegal immigrants. And in a third case, an agent was investigated for soliciting sex from a witness in a marriage fraud case.”

Those who are responsible for enforcing the laws who act as though they are above the law must be held accountable.  Toward the end of the Bush administration, many in the legal community were left with the impression that ICE agents were empowered to do whatever they wanted without much accountability for their actions.  There was a lack of Due Process, inmates were dying while in custody, even US Citizens were deported to other countries.  This trend seems to be coming to an end with President Obama and DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano at the helm.
