A detective for Arizona´s state police force has resigned following the discovery that she was living in the country illegally after being brought to the U.S. from Mexico by her family at a young age, the agency said Wednesday. The former detective, Carmen Figueroa, apparently was told by her family that she was born in the U.S., though she was actually born in Sinaloa, Mexico, said Department of Public Safety spokesman Bart Graves.

Anger here should be directed at the parents - clearly this woman is not to blame. I am vehemently against any kind of amnesty for the criminals who break into our country, but this woman´s situation shows we cannot approach the issue with a one size fits all approach

The Democrats want amnesty for all such people, and in some cases it will be hard to convince voters that a blanket deportation policy is not mean-spirited. So, for my money, the Republicans should consider allowing some sort of pathway to legal residency and possible citizenship for people who were brought here illegally at a very young age IFF they and their parents can pass a very intensive screening of their actions and work history while they were here.

Illegal is illegal. The sins of the parents are visited on their children.
I cannot accept "pathway to citizenship" as a fix, because these children received benefits that belonged to OUR children.(Our tax dollars)
Ill gotten gains..if a man robs a bank, do the children get to keep the money when the man goes to jail?

It is not unusual at all for illegal aliens to falsely claim to be US citizens in order to evade the immigration laws. It´s easy for them to do because in the areas where most of them subsist it is considered not to be politically correct to question an alien´s true citizenship or immigration status.

When falsely claiming US citizenship illegal aliens usually have either a birth certificate relating to a real US citizen, who many times died in childhood, or that relates to a US citizen who resides in some other part of the USA. Sometimes they have a completely bogus birth certificate.

Some illegal aliens who are falsely claiming US citizenship fraudulently obtain a US passport that allows them to travel outside the USA, and that guarantees them re-entry to this country without having to comply with the immigration laws, as once a US passport is presented at a port of entry, US immigration officers must consider it to be conclusive evidence of US citizenship.

Falsely claiming US citizenship is a federal felony violation of criminal law. Obviously the supporters of amnesty just want to forget and ignore those serious violations of US law, and just legalize the entire illegal alien population group.

The undetected false claiming of US citizenship by illegal aliens is one of the reasons that the American public will probably find out the current illegal alien population group is much larger then the low ball figure of about 11 million that the liberal media is always throwing out there.

I agree with the suspect natire of anything written by AP.

I would presume this woman has been paying her taxes,as a law enforcement officer, and is what this country is all about. I wish she didn´t resign, but took a leave of absence to become a citizen, after which time she resumes her job, and status as a tax paying, law abiding citizen.

Visiting the sins of the father onto the children went out of fashion many, many years ago, we are individuals.

Instead of packing a suitcase and heading for the Mendocino Coast, Las Vegas or some other destination that comes to mind for a sexagenarian, the 62-year-old Morgan took a trip that would make most 20-somethings cringe: An 800-mile walk from Sonoma to San Diego along El Camino Real while visiting the California Missions.

LAKEPORT, Calif. – An initiative effort that proposes to institute rent control in the city of Lakeport´s senior mobile home parks has gathered enough signatures to appear before Lakeport voters on the November 2014 ballot. [snip] It would roll back all rental rates in such parks to Jan. 1, 2012, requiring that future rent increases be based on the percent Social Security benefits are raised. Strasser initially had asked the city of Lakeport to consider the matter, but when those discussions didn't move forward he started gathering signatures this spring. He needed 270 valid signatures from Lakeport voters to get onto the next municipal ballot, according to Fridley.

Former GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney has sworn off running again for elected office, but Americans have certainly heard that one before. Speculation that Romney might run again has largely been stoked by the reunion he planned to host last month in Park City, Utah, for members of his 2012 campaign and debate team and a string of recent public appearances. He has appeared on TV news shows 12 times in the past six months. That’s essentially on pace with Michigan GOP Rep. Mike Rogers, who led all national politicians last year with 26 appearances over 12 months. Romney has

Kathryn Riffenburg decided on a closed casket for her baby´s funeral. She didn´t want her family to see what whooping cough, her son´s first illness, had done to 9-week-old Brady Alcaide. The nearly forgotten disease, which has in recent years afflicted thousands of Americans, left Brady´s tiny body swollen and unrecognizable. So his mother dressed him in a white baptismal suit and hat and tucked him into a tiny white casket.

WASHINGTON- Seven million people signed up, so there is an appetite for President Barack Obama´s health care law, but that doesn´t guarantee success for the country´s newest social program. Big challenges are lurking for the next enrollment season, which starts Nov. 15. Chief among them are keeping premiums and other consumer costs in check, and overhauling an enrollment process that was advertised as customer-friendly but turned out to be an ordeal.

The president gave two speeches this week, one in the Rose Garden to talk about Obamacare and one in Ann Arbor, Mich., to push minimum wage increases. What did we learn? We learned that President Obama is most comfortable in campaign mode, and his campaigning has gotten downright ugly. His Rose Garden speech was a typical self-congratulatory moment for supposedly hitting 7.1 million Obamacare sign-ups — although we know that once again, the White House is ignoring some inconvenient truths. We also learned that the president was vain enough to asked the networks to cover his speech in prime time, but

Bevin has said he didn´t know it was a rally supporting cockfighting and thought it was a "state´s rights" rally. After ducking other calls for comment, Bevin went on WHAS radio´s "Terry Meiners Show" on Thursday to talk about the rally, cockfighting and other things. "I´ve never been to a cockfight, I don´t condone cockfighting, but here´s the thing: I´m not going to disparage people for exercising their First Amendment rights,"
