An illegal immigrant who was arrested after trying to pay a fine with counterfeit bills at Brighton District Court is being held by Immigration and Customs Enforcement, authorities said.
Fernando Costa, 24, of Watertown was arrested Wednesday after the bills failed two tests that a court clerk performed on them, police said.
Costa attempted to use two $100 bills, two $20 bills, and one $10 bill, police said. Costa was trying to pay a fine for driving with a suspended license, according to Suffolk District Attorney Daniel F. Conley's office.

Dumbass...it's not enough that he's sponging off the taxpayers?

Conley's office said that after the arrest, cops found Costa was wanted on an immigration warrant for illegally entering the country. He is currently being held on that warrant, Conley's office said.
I'll be interested in a follow up as to whether he actually gets deported.
