The statement said that the two agents allegedly sold tickets to illegal immigrants. All three are accused of helping an unspecified number of illegal immigrants bypass customs officials from May 2008 to July 2009.
The ticket agents, identified as Diana Telemaque, 33, and Felicia Browne, 22, were arrested Thursday along with luggage handler Daniel Confidente. The suspects were released on $10,000 bail and face up to 10 years in prison if convicted. Delta airlines said that the contractors, employed by another company, have been dismissed.
