Trial begins next month for two former Border Patrol agents accused of smuggling people from Mexico, Fox News reported.

One of the agents, Raul Villarreal, often appeared on TV to warn Mexicans of the dangers of entering the U.S. illegally.

Villarreal’s older brother and fellow former agent, Fidel Villarreal also is accused of smuggling hundreds of migrants from Mexico, according to Fox News.

The high-profile corruption case is just the latest in an agency that has struggled with malfeasance since doubling its number of agents to more than 21,000 over the past seven years, Fox News reported.
