Tahaya Buchanan, a recent Homeland Security employee, was sought on the bounds of a 2007 indictment in which she was charged with staging the theft of her vehicle. Paul Loriquet, who is part of the Essex County Prosecutor’s Office stated that, “the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services office did not have knowledge that Buchanan was faced with charges or was even arrested just a couple months ago. Ana Santiago, who is the spokeswoman for Immigration Services states that she did not have information available in regards to whether or not the department checked up on national crime warrants. Many individuals question the fact as to how a wanted fugitive could work for Homeland Security especially since there was a national alert for her arrest. Buchanan has been found guilty on one charge of insurance fraud and now faces three months of probation.
