$250K Forfeiture, Guilty Plea in Texas E-1 / E-2 Visa Fraud Case

"A Laredo woman plans to plead guilty to conspiracy to use fraud to
help Mexican entrepreneurs get visas that let them live in the
United States.  Among the tactics used by Emilia Diaz,
41, was taking pictures of the inside of an H-E-B and passing them off
as being from inside a tiny meat market business of one of her clients.  Diaz
runs E.G. Services, which provides visa and tax services, and she
signed a plea deal that says she provided fraudulent paperwork to the
State Department in an effort to get up to 24 “E” series visas for
clients between 2007 and August 2011." – San Antonio Express-News, May 8, 2012.
