The feds are investigating an  Immigration and Customs Enforcement agent in Miami for allegedly taking more than $100,000 in bribes from a confidential government informant, the Sun-Sentinel reported.

The bribes were allegedly paid to ICE agent Juan Martinez for “temporary parole” immigration status for Colombians and others. The status allowed them to stay in the U.S. even though they did not qualify for such status, the paper reported.

Martinez has been suspended without pay and his attorney declined comment, the paper reported.

The paper reported that ICE confidential informant, Jose Miguel Aguirre-Pinzon, was charged in mid-April with allegedly paying about $109,000 in bribes “to a public official, with the intent to influence any official act.” The official was not named.

The U.S. grants short-term parole benefits to endangered family members of drug traffickers and government witnesses who assist the Justice Department, the paper reported.
