Arizona State Trooper Resigns After It Is Discovered She Is An Illegal Alien

A 13-year veteran of the Arizona State Troopers has resigned after it was learned she was an illegal alien.

Tucson’s NBC affiliate is reporting Carmen Figueroa, who once served as the Arizona Department of Public Safety’s spokeswoman, likely didn’t even know she was an illegal alien until this summer.

Bart Graves, DPS spokesperson tells the News 4 Tucson Investigators “We believe the affidavit and information she gave us at the time. And, she was under the impression that she herself was an American citizen.”

DPS officials wouldn’t say if Figueroa would be charged with a crime, but Graves told the Associated Press she would have been fired if she didn’t step down because state law requires all sworn officers to be US citizens.

“She did not really find out until this summer … that she was an illegal alien through, I believe, a confrontation with her mother,” Graves told the AP.

Figueroa’s citizenship status came to light when her brother, a member of the U.S. military, applied with the State Department for a passport and federal authorities learned he had a sister who was an Arizona state police officer.

Figueroa spent about a decade as a highway patrol officer in southern Arizona before become a detective and “had an exemplary record” on the job, Graves said.

    You know, I do feel sorry for people caught in a position like this, BUT it is their own family’s fault. I say, let her apply for citizenship, then let her have her job back.

    • David Casillas

      I agree. I feel terribly sorry for her, and she should apply for one.

      • Marie

        Hey, you should feel sorry for yourself. You should know what is right and wrong…You most accept the Mexicans doing wrong thing to across the border. Respect the U.S.A’S LAW!!

        • Tony Anzalone

          lol what is right is taking care of your family and what is wrong is sending people to a country they have never been to because their parents brought them here. You are mixing up morality with law. Common mistake for racist retards.

          • Marie

            Hey, You. The point is to work and make the money in an honest way! Most of the illegal aliens make the money DISHONESTLY, illegals aliens should LEARN, THE QUALITY OF BEING HONEST!

          • Tony Anzalone

            Don’t you have a clan meeting to attend?

    • Tamara

      So reward her lies and deception. Incredible thought process you have.

      • Hard2Rock

        No Tamara, reward her dedication to protecting the citizens of the US and Arizona.

      • Brian

        Did you not read the article?

        She, herself, was under the belief she had an American citizenship and then found out she did not – so she voluntarily resigned. How is that lying or deceiving anyone? Don’t be a moron.

        • guest

          bull.. illegals know when their illegal…they watch their familys dance around goverment for year change names etc…its absolute bull her saying she was under any impressions…liying mother…..deport that lying broad..u have to absolutely not know anything about yourself to know that your not an illegal..

          • Chance

            You’re an absolute moron. An ignorant, bigoted moron. None of this is true; it’s very, VERY easy to live normally in the United States as an illegal immigrant. That’s the whole problem.

            Please do me a favor and move to another country.

          • Red

            That isn’t what the Guest wrote, you ignorant ass. He wrote that illegals damn well KNOW they are here illegally, not that they find it difficult to live here. You graduate from high school, ’cause your reading comprehension sucks.

          • Joe

            Nope. I know illegal immigrants who’ve been in this country since they were too young to speak who went to a normal grade school and a normal highschool, and lived in their same house their entire lives and never changed their names once. If their parents hadn’t told them that they’re illegal, they would have never known.

          • Pamela K. Cahoon Laub

            No where along the way was she, or other illegals who came here at a young age, required to produce a birth certificate? I’ve had to produce mine numerous times and my white family has been here for generations.

          • Marie

            The illegal aliens are LIARS. All of you are MAFIA. I hire Americans, not Mexicans. I always ask for Green Card I.D. Do you know, they responded, forget the papers at home……….

          • shell

            You are a jerk!!!! She could of came over here at a young age with her parents and they never told her that they were here illegally. They could of had fake papers made saying they were citizens.

        • Red

          Brian, I have a truly beautiful bridge down in Florida I just know you’d be dying to buy. How’s about we meet up so I can show you what a great deal it is? You be the moron. Illegals KNOW they are here illegally, it isn’t a scientific mystery.

        • Pamela K. Cahoon Laub

          She voluntarily resigned when the fact she was illegal was revealed. We are expected to believe she thought her Mexican family, including her, were all here legally.

      • GomeznSA

        Good grief, there was absolutel NO indication that she knew she was ‘illegal’ until very recently. She would have had to have such knowledge in order to perpetrate “lies and deception.” Is it just lack of reading comprehension or a deep seated animosity?

      • Patrick

        She didn’t lie, her mother did! Read the article moron!

      • http://www.topdocumentaryfilms.com Epicurus

        are you mad an “illegal” has done more for America than you?

    • Patrick

      I agree, she has shown herself to be a good, hard working asset to society!

      • Marie

        HEY, MEXICANS DON’T MAKE EXCUSES AND BE HONEST PERSONS. YOU BROKEN THE AMERICAN LAW, AND WANT REWARD, NO WAY, GO TO YOUR BELOVED COUNTRY. ILLEGAL ARE ILLEGALS. THE ILLEGAL ALIENS DON’T HAVE ANY RESPECT FOR AMERICAN LAW. ALL OF YOU RESPECT YOUR MEXICO COUNTRY, THAT’S, I’VE HEARD……………… AND DIE IN MEXICO!!

        • bridgetarlene

          IT’S TOO BAD YOU SPEND SO MUCH TIME YELLING “TOUGH LOVE” AT PEOPLE ON THE INTERNET THAT YOU DON’T HAVE TIME TO EDIT YOUR POSTS OR UNDERSTAND IRONY!!

          • Marie

            don’t get mad. I don’t have intention to yell on the internet.
            Sometimes the keyboard get stuck……..

          • Karen Austin

            That “Mexican” was willing to lay down her life to protect us “Americans”. Until you live the life along the thin blue line, STFU!

          • Marie

            The Mexicans are liars. You don’t make excuses for them.
            How, is possible she doesn’t know about her legal Status?

          • nenieves

            do you wear a sheet and a point hat

          • Rob Long

            She has an opinion and she disagrees. You can disagree with her. However, you cant do that in a decent way, all you have is the ability to belittle… So, i’ll belittle you, well, actually i dont have to, youre already little… arent you?

          • nenieves

            I DOING WHAT SHE IS DOING AND BY THE WAY YOU TOO

          • Shell

            Her parents probably never told her and they could of had fake papers made, duh!!!!

          • p

            maybe she was born in mexico and smuggled over when she was really young! ever think of that?

          • Marie

            PROBABLY!!

          • dachman

            Wow, “The Mexicans are liars” you have some deep seated hate that you need to work through. I just hope Mexicans don’t judge all Americans by the hate you are spewing.

          • Mark Gillaspy

            @Karen, Are you sure she wasn’t just trying to get a good paycheck?

          • Tony Anzalone

            Wow, so white people are willing to lay down their lives for the public when they become officers but rown people are just looking for a good paycheck?

          • Mark Gillaspy

            Tony, you are showing your perverse little mind again, I did not mention race,gender, political affiliation, nor country origination and yet you go directly for race baiting.Why is that Tony? You are the racist prick Tony.

          • Tony Anzalone

            The person you are referring to is Mexican genius.

          • Mark Gillaspy

            Either you are slow Tony or attempting to create bigotry out of my statement aren’t you Tony, I suggested she was trying to create income, so take your racism comments and shove em!

          • Cameron Jones

            You may have not mentioned race, gender or otherwise but it was most definitely implied…you, Marie, Rob and Red are certainly something else. Thank God there are less and less people that think the way you guys do in this world every day

          • Red

            Ohhhh, I call a BIG B/S on that. I SERIOUSLY DOUBT this particular illegal alien ever laid down her life for anyone.

          • shell

            You are a jerk. How would you know you don’t know her, that is just your opinion. She didn’t even know she was an illegal alien according to the article. She should be allowed to become a citizen and get her job back. At least she was working.

          • lancelot

            Illegal IS still illegal. How can she give any sort of tickets or arrest anyone? Her validity would be challenged in court. ANYONE she has EVER arrested can now come back and get re-tried. This is NOT a good thing

          • Rob Long

            More cops than not are NOT heroes. The thin blue line is self glorification more than anything.

          • nenieves

            YOUR RACIST BRAIN GETS STRUCK

            HEY, STUPID AND RACIST PIG, YOU KEEP REPEATING AND OVER AND OVER AGAIN…SHUT UP…………

            Red, as juvenile as Maurice’s profanity response was I am astounded by your response. Honestly not since my days in grade school on the play ground have I heard such a well thought out response in an argument.

          • disqus_XzRMrT3okl

            Apparently you have lived a very sheltered life. And while the comment was uncalled for, Marie’s is without question, the most vile.

          • RufusVonDufus

            People like you are the reason we are having all of these problems with illegals. Holier than thou and more guilty than most is what I would bet!

          • Red Bike

            I already made my argument, Jennifer. I hope the fact that you favor Maurice’s position and are opposed to mine didn’t cloud your judgment when you chose whom to chastise. Frankly, I am doubly astounded that your decision to chastise me was political rather than based on the content of my remarks. Intellectual honesty begins with one’s self, Jennifer.

            marie is undoubtedly a white welfare clown sucking up the wealth by those who contribute.. she must be related to those corporate crook bailout con artists like Cruz and his wife, the GOP bankers, GOP farm subsidy socialists etc.

          • Marie

            HEY, YOU DON’T KNOW WHAT YOU’RE TALKING ABOUT.THE DEMOCRATS ARE SOCIALIST AND COMMUNIST LIKE OBAMA.

          • PESully

            socialists and communists are two different things….

          • Scrap Iron

            Not so… Communists are just a specific brand of the more general term socialists.

          • PESully

            Just remember Jesus was a socialist. It is amazing how much boogeyman still scare the sh#t out of folks. The answer is simple, as far as “illegal Mexicans ” go open the borders.

          • Scrap Iron

            I was just correcting a misunderstanding of definitions but no Jesus was not a socialist despite your claims otherwise. And you answer to illegal aliens is completely off the mark as well.

          • PESully

            Jesus was a socialist, did he not teach that people are responsible for their brothers and sisters? Did he not feed the multitudes, without expecting compensation? That is socialism, communism as defined by the USSR experiment was the state assuming total responsibility for the people. While the Chinese experiment has been finding ways to incorporate capitalism. Different beast. As for “illegal” aliens. calif, texas, NM, Az, all part of old mexico. Anyone here now with white skin is historically an illegal alien as the original folks here had red skin. Historically America, welcomed with open arms anyone who wished to improve their lives and their families. It is a shame that this country has adopted the attitude of 1930′s germany. Go read the plaque at the base of the Statue of Liberty. Open the borders. While we are at it, do not forget it was said, whatever you do to the least of my children, you do to me.

          • Talacocheta

            Just want to point out that not every person of Native American heritage has red skin. My father was college roommates with a guy who had red hair and ghost-white skin. The guy ended up becoming the Chief of the Eastern Band of Cherokees for a time. My siblings and I differ in our skin tone as well, with my sister having red hair and ghost-white complexion, me being a very light olive complexion with dark brown hair, and my brother having medium light complexion until he gets out in the sun all summer, in which case he turns a dark red-brown. (His hair is a dark dirty blonde.) I used to have darker skin, but unfortunately have pernicious anemia, which is a condition that can cause lightening of the skin. (I wish I could be my brother’s end-of-summer color all the time.) We’re only part Muscogee, so are part immigrant.

          • Lovenia Johnson

            Every person born here is a NATIVE AMERICAN.Cash your “tribal” welfare check,INDIAN.

          • PESully

            go apply for a GOV job and check the box native american…. doesn’t work. Does your mother know you are so bigoted?

          • Scrap Iron

            No Jesus did not teach that you are personally responsible for your brothers and sisters. He taught to love your neighbor and have compassion for them. He taught to be generous and to willing to offer help to our neighbors. He did not teach that a local bully (socialist) was to take our money and decide who gets the money and brag about “his compassion”. He denounced those who trumpet such deeds like the selfish socialists do. Praised are those who quietly and voluntarily share. He taught that everyone was to labor and take care of themselves the best that they can. Everyone is expected to be industrious to the best of their ability. Jesus is all for voluntary charity but not bull braggers who take others money to enrich themselves under the pretext of being “charitable” with someone else’s money.

          • PESully

            1930′ Russia or Germany, both societies based on Programs. Instead of dealing with the issues at hand, they found relief in scapegoatism. If JC came back today, he would go find an Orthodox Temple, celebrate Passover, berate the holier than thou Christians for not keeping the Sabbath. Probably get a big honkin rv for his disciples, so they could road trip. Make it to AZ and get deported for being a little dark skinned illegal.. JC’s message was simple and can be summed up by Bill and Ted’s Big Adventure, “be excellent to each other”. The Christian community, the “protest ants” are an embarrassment to his teachings. And johhny come latelys anyway, Born out of the Mind of Martin Luther in the 1500″s. As for who lived here originally, there were more people living in the states than europe prior to columbus’s invasion and genocide. Unfortunately their immune systems were not adapted to the europeans diseases, or else they would have kicked the snot out of the late comers, as they did the vikings and the such.
            As for me this has amused me long enough. I advocate opening the border with mexico and canada and letting this country get back to what is important. Inventing and creating a better way of life, not sniveling whining about he has more than me or I am not gonna share. It is not all about me, me ,me, but about leaving something better behind and compared to what the WW2 generation created, we are currently failing.

          • Scrap Iron

            You are simply off the mark on most everything that you say other than be good to each other was Jesus’s message (one thing you got right) which something that you certainly have not been doing in this board. Nor should you be so arrogant. Nor did anyone say anything about not sharing or anything like that. You cannot open a border in the era of modern transportation (distance was the border patrol many of years ago) and still have a country. It would dissolve into chaos and is a foolish notion.

          • PESully

            the estimated population of the americas prior to 1492 is in the order of 100 million. go check it out. apprx 90% of the population was killed by disease after the introduction of the europeans. do a bit of research, enlighten yourself, I can suggest a not too bad book for you to start with, it is called 1491 the natives of this country were not backwards savages. they were just not innoculated against all the european diseases, such as smallpox, etc., etc.. as for opening the borders, it does appear to be working for the EU.I am sure you know what the EU is and can easily find out how many countries it involves. a citizen of one EU country can freely travel to any other, and even get a job in another, without much trouble at all. it is far better than being paranoid and afraid of a boogieman under every rock. and what else is off the mark? that jesus would not be deported as an illegal, if he could not prove his birth in this country? do you think he would find it necessary to come equipped with a green card? I bet if he returns he will just show up and not be bothered by being any particular nationality. or perhaps you have forgotten that he was and if he ever returns will be jewish. the short of it is, there is not reason to treat anyone any different than you would wish to be treated.

          • Scrap Iron

            You need to recheck your facts. I did a search on it before I replied. I know all about the introduction of diseases as well. But regardless, the technology edge was a decisive factor that the natives were not going to overcome. Indian has a billion people and they were conquered by the Europeans. The 100 million that you are quoting is the highest of high end estimates from those who study this topic and it is for the entire Americas, north and south. Other estimates go down to 40 million or less for the entire Americas, north and south. The discussion was about the populations in the region now occupied by the United States. North American was not as densely populated and the estimates go as low as under 3 million and as high as 18 million.

          • Red

            Outright fabrication. Less than 10 million total. Lying doesn’t make it true.

          • Red

            The population estimates you cite are playfully generous with the facts. Likely fewer than 10 million for all the Americas combined. Remember, North America was then, as it is now, the principal grain growing region of the Americas. Central and South America simply do not have enough arable land or moderate climates to sustain large populations. Check out the CIA World Factbook. Those regions of South American with a temperate climate have poor soil and negligible precipitation.

          • PESully

            expand you research data beyond the cia world factbook, lol… do you get your sports info from guniess world records, also? but keep it up, you are good for a laugh.

          • Red

            That is an outright lie. Europe was far, far more populous than the Americas at the time of Columbus. Europeans were successfully circumnavigating the earth, easily raising enough foodstuffs to feed the population. Not so for aboriginal Americans. No livestock. No horses. Hunter-gatherers barely having evolved out of the caves of the stone age.
            Don’t you find it a little disingenuous to preach socialism and Christianity with the same breath? Socialists literally have to steal the produce of the workers through gang-like takeovers of governments. Theft is against the Ten Commandments.

          • PESully

            You are very angry aren’t you. Every post I see from you starts with an insult. I think you perhaps should read some history books to start and you can figure out that there were more inhabitants of the americas than europe. I am guessing you also think the Flintstones is a documentary. it is very amusing that everything you seem to disagree with is an outright lie. Your mother must be so proud of you.

            How in the world did people get this idea that Socialists are just foaming at the mouth to bust into your house and take your money?
            Oh, and as for the money issue, Jesus got angry at the people who horded money, and who chose to gouge those who didn’t have much.

          • Scrap Iron

            They don’t have to come into the house they have been doing with their fiscal policies. I agree about hording and gouging but that is not what we are talking about. As a matter of fact, those same socialist are the one doing a good bit of the hording. Bill Clinton used his election to political office to make $100 million for himself. Al Gore did that same thing. The socialists are both the thieves and the ones hording.

            Our foreign aid is just the larger scheme of the bully who took the money from you and I and is giving it to someone else–and for what purposes other than enriching tyrants far away/racketeering payments to get something for some crony is never disclosed to us at all. Whatever happened to our abhorrence for paying tribute to a foreign power? Now we seem to pay everyone and chain ourselves with the debt to do so.

            Thank you. these fake Christians are getting me down. They love the Lord, they say. But are not willing to follow his commands.

          • Scrap Iron

            Your statement itself is not Christian. Nor do you know what they do or do not follow. But Jesus never taught to steal from some people just to give it to others and brag about how good that makes you. He did teach us to: Judge not least thee be judged likewise. And to not be boastful of our good deeds or proclaim how good a Christian you are. Profess your Christian yes but not how much better you are.

          • PESully

            who steals from you? are you referring to taxes? if you desire to live here you need to pay taxes. how they are spent is up to the governing legislatures not the individual citizens. they are the price of admission so to speak. and on a world wide and historical scale, within the US, they are cheap. “He did teach us to: Judge not least thee be judged likewise. And to not be boastful of our good deeds or proclaim how good a Christian you are. Profess you’re a Christian yes but not how much better you are.” then how can you judge this woman, or even how can you judge a “communist”? it is not your place is it?

          • Scrap Iron

            Your response had a tyrannical tone to it. You don’t get to decide who gets to live here and on what terms. Sorry to break the news to you. And its easy not to pay taxes….don’t work. I have no problem paying taxes and that it not what I was specifically making analogous to theft though it is a valid comparison also. Everything has it limits and 100% tax is total subjugation and slavery. It would be theft regardless of what legal system allowed it to be passed and would be a violation of human rights. As a matter of fact our nation was founded due to unfair taxation as a violation of human rights and an obstacle to the pursuit of life, liberty and happiness. I was referring to the constant overspending (not to help a short term crisis like a war but as a way of living) which is a way to avoid the due process obstacle of actually passing appropriate taxes and it is effectively stolen from everyone who has money through long term devaluation of the dollar. And regardless of its legality to overspend, I have every right to judge it as immoral/unethical/wrong and politically speak out against it and call it stealing if I chose to do so. As well as speak out against any action taken by my legislators. If that offends you, that is your problem.

            You clearly do not understand the judge not least they be judged likewise. Everyone is fallible and everyone has their own personal demons and challenges that are unique to them and not necessarily of equal difficulty, Therefore, it is not our place to determine by their actions on earth whether they are true (but perhaps misguided) believers in our Lord worthy of salvation. That is for the Lord only. And by calling them fake Christians, you are judging persons who profess to believe (if they don’t believe and openly say so then you are not judging them to say they are not believers) and Christian should try to refrain from doing that. (but they are still Christians. They are doing something that they should not) We are free to judge actions as good or bad and whether a person is displaying good or bad behavior but not whether or not they have earned salvation if they so profess to believe. An example would be a serial killer who professes to have seen the light and believes. It would be wrong to judge him as a non fellow believer and deliberately deny him a last rights prayer. But it is perfectly valid to carry out his due process punishment say life in prison or condemn his past acts of murder.

            May you be surrounded by illegal aliens all the rest of your days…

          • http://Canyousaythatagainplease.blogspot.com Shin Sudae ^▽^

            Hey, I’ll take that~

            Most illegal aliens are the most hard-working, kind, caring, and fun people I’ve ever known.

            And I grew up in AZ, so I knew quite a lot of them.

            I was friends with the migrant workers who worked the fields that I walked by on my way to school, and they always made sure I had water, some fruit, and watched over me as I walked. The one time a man approached me, he was quickly sent on his way by half a dozen very wary men, who then proceeded to walk me the rest of the way to school.

            I’d much rather be surrounded by good people than the people who profess that they are ‘good all-American’ people, because I’m tired of the bigotry, hatred, and entitled attitude they all seem to give off.

            Of course, this is why I’m not staying in the States~

            It is people like you that give off the aura of the very things you claim to protest. And love using unnecessary attacks and make the whole thing about emotion with unnecessary demonizing of those who disagree which makes things more ugly than it needs to be. It is a destructive trait that hurts us all and is counter productive. It is not about them as individuals. There are billions of good people on this earth just as deserving but our country’s economy is not yet big enough to support them and for them to come here would cause a catastrophic collapse and everyone would lose. Our economic growth is usually much less than 10% per year and sometimes not at all. I welcome all those who come here legally and within the limits that we can support at this time. They are by and large good people.

            Jesus, might have fed the multitudes ONCE but the government can’t do that on an ongoing basis, someone has to pay for the seeds, the water, the fertilizer. Someone has to harvest the grain and someone has to bake the bread. If everyone sits on their butt expecting someone else to do it all for no compensation, it isn’t going to work. Never confuse a single act of God with the economics of feeding 330 million people.
            There is no such thing as a native American … we all came from another continent…it was just a matter of time. The aboriginal Americans were failing and failing fast. Had it not been for the Spanish invaders of Central and South America, virtually every single tribe would have died off. These are stone-age people who never evolved, save and except to the extent they have adopted European ways. The Pueblo, the Inca, the Maya…all gone way before Europeans arrived. The plains Indians of North America were starving before Europeans introduced livestock and horses. Hunting buffalo on foot is decidedly a losing proposition. You’ve been reading too many politically corrected history textbooks.

            What space-time continuum do you occupy with that moronic statement. I am a recovering secular humanist, communist and Jesus was no socialist. Socialist,nazis,facist ALL believe that the use of power to force people to comply is not only acceptable but necessary. Jesus said whomsoever will LET them come. I love it when communist who HATE God try to use his Son to support their evil positions.

            Communists aren’t patient enough to wait for the deterioration of educational systems and public more’s like socialists, they resort to violence to accomplish a totalitarian police state. Socialists, on the other hand, are patient. They infiltrate our educational systems and our workplaces and our mainstream political parties with the same end goal. We have a totalitarian president now. He ignores the courts and the Congress and rules illegally by executive order. November 2014 is coming…along with Congressional investigations that will shake the Democrat Party to its foundations…and they know it!

            LOL better get a dictionary, Marie. Socialist and Communist are two very different kinds of political groups. One can’t be both. I know Fox News, Glen Beck and Rush Limbaugh told you this but… sometimes they are a tiny bit incorrect. I know, so shocking, isn’t it.

          • Scrap Iron

            You are incorrect. Communists are a particular type of Socialist by definition. So, if you are a communist then you are also a socialist but not all socialists are communists.

          • Mr Wiseguy

            There is a massive difference between a capitalist economy with a social safety net (socialism) and a command economy where the State owns all factors of production (communism) and no private ownership of property is permitted.

            You are completely wrong. Maybe you thing Christianity is communist too since Jesus fed the hungry and all that. You would be wrong there too.

            You need to get an education beyond Rush.

          • Scrap Iron

            Another personal attack showing no substance but plenty of unfounded arrogance. (and I don’t listen to Rush)

            You are wrong. First, I never said that there were not significant differences between a safety net model and communism. That is a creation in your own mind. I said correctly that a communist is a socialist. There are many forms of socialism…Market Socialism, Libertarian Socialism etc… and Communistic socialism. Most people are not familiar with all the different types and new types continue to evolve so in most discussions we call all the types we don’t know as socialists and the ones we do know like communism communists and leave out the socialism. And a safety net is not inherently socialist. It is how it is implemented that can make it socialist. If the state is the direct owner and caretaker of the resources used to provide the safety net then is is socialistic. Private charity etc… would be capitalistic

          • Monique

            Rae, name one instance in which Beck or Limbaugh did not know the difference between communism and socialism. Trolls often are more than “a tiny bit incorrect.”

          • brianjconway

            MO was a slave state but did not leave the Union. KY, MO,MD,and DE were all slave states and remained so during the Civil War although they did not leave the Union. When Lincoln issued the Emancipation proclamation, he freed only those slaves in seceded states and only in the areas controlled by the Confederacy. The remainder were not freed until December 1865 by the 13th amendment. a half year after the war ended. You really have to sharpen up sJames, you rant and rave like a baboon and make as much sense.

            You, Marie and any one else residing in america are certainly free to speak your mind. The people “jumping on” Marie are simply using that same freedom to speak their minds on the subject of what Marie had to say.
            Say what you want, exercise that right, but do not for one moment think it entitles you to kind treatment, being listened to, or understanding from your fellow man. The people who are ‘jumping on’ Marie are at worst violating the expectation of social decency. Some of the things being said by others in response may be rude, crass and mean, but it is still their right to do so.

          • Red Bike

            Oh I don’t know Jennifer, maybe it’s the blatant hypocrisy of a law enforcement officer having broken a serious law. In most jurisdictions, if a LEO gets a speeding ticket they lose their job. I’m thinking illegally entering the US, then making a statement on your job application that your are a US citizen and then singing that application under penalty of perjury might constitute a little more character flaw than speeding, but that’s just me.

Possibly you should consider your responses more carefully before setting them to print. Or maybe you should lower the angle of your nose when taking a shower.

          • Lance Manion

            Well, I comprehend THIS: I have a birth certificate and I have a SS card with a number on it. When I became an adult my parents gave both documents to me. (as they did also with my three other siblings) There have been instances in my life as well as most of the rest of us where I had to prove my citizenship by producing one or both documents. I don’t see how she got around that. WHat about that SS number? Did she have one? How did she get it? How, if she is not legal? Because that one is required on EVERYTHING you do almost. On tax returns. How did she file returns without a SS number?

            Even if her parent never provided her with one there had to be other issues that arose in her lifetime where she would naturally ask to see or have her Birth Certificate, yet she claims she never knew until last summer. That is when the feds came a-calling.

            That’s BULL. She knew all along she had no documentation, hence her ‘surprise’ upon finding out she had none. I am a cop with over 30 years experience. She knew.

            The corruption is extreme in the meat packing industry. The cleaning crews are 98% illegal because they are tough shitty jobs. I was an assistant manager and left because of the corruption of forcing illegals to pay the manager their first two paychecks to get the job in the first place. Really bad and I lived it. When I made it clear I wasn’t going to play that game I became “incomunicado” amongst the management and was harassed so I looked for a job and resigned. The corruption was too extreme as everyone up to regional managers got a cut of the money. Then when illegals would quit or get fired they still reported them as working to payroll and collected “ghost” paychecks cashed them at the mexican meat markets in Omaha and they all got a cut of that money too!!! I was sooo out of there!

          • osamaba bin mooch michelle

            The sanitation crew had a 5 hour window every night to sanitize the meat plant. The hard work was damn near slave labor… NO JOKE!!! We had ONE legal employee on the cleaning crew and she was there because she needed the job.

Another 2 died employed by the meat packers for the same reason. OSHA was all over the company and levied fines for the accidents. No biggie! Just pay the fines, the show must go on. We all love our steaks, ribs, turkey and chicken!

            Imagine when the 34 degree meat plant manager hands over the plant to the sanitation crew. They roll into the freezing cold with many hoses that spray water at 140 degrees and 10 minutes into spraying the bloody meat machines the place turns foggy and deadly slippery with water, blood and meat all over the ground, walls, and you!! Meat, blood, grease, water everywhere and you’re having to walk around in this place where you now can barely see and are surrounded by harmful objects. I can’t count how many times I slipped around and fell several times once twisting my elbow that still hurts to this day!! These little guys from Guatemala, Mexico, Honduras etc.. etc.. crawl in and out of the meat machines spraying them them from inside out to get them clean. THEN they come in with big pump spray bottles filled with a soap and caustic(sodium hydroxide) chemical mix that will burn your skin and blind your eyes to spray that foam ALL over the machines and walls making the place even more slippery and dangerous!! So here are these guys in chemical gear, goggles that fog up trying to get the job done in 5 hours. It was amazing to see them get their jobs done and get about $300 a week for it!!! That’s why after about two weeks or less I would lose every legal worker I hired. They just said this is crazy and quit leaving the illegals to keep working because THEY have no choice.

            The plant I worked in carried 4-6 “ghost paychecks” per week all year long. That’s 1,200 to 1,800 per week in fraudulent money split amongst the manager and above! I was offered money and REFUSED it that’s when the downfall began at that job. You had to be dirty to be accepted. Had I known all that crap beforehand I would have NEVER taken that shitty job!

            When I mean the two huge kill plants and mention the sanitation crew numbers that’s not being clear that these plants employed about 3,000 people on the meat packers side of the business. These plants are huge and 300 people for the sanitation crews is also a big number. These plants were rumored to carry between 15 and 20 “ghost checks” per week. That’s 4,500 to 6,000 dollars per week in fraudulent money split up and down amongst the corrupt management!!!!

            No amnesty! Enforce immigration laws! If they get caught deport them and do away with all these “safe haven” cities where illegals are tolerated!!!

          • mariesux

            You are a piece of work. What the hell kind of language are you trying to speak? You almost sound like a Mexican who hates Mexicans. “retirement chech” “steal money to the american country” “wrong to across the border” “your Mexico country, that’s I’ve heard” and many more illiterate contributions to the topic. And of course, after all the hate speak, you have to go all christian with your “God bless you”
            Pathetic, illiterate, hateful, stupid bitch. Take a class.

          • MARIE

            we’re planning to simply walk across the border from the U.S. to Mexico, and we’ll need your help to make a few arrangements.
            we plan to skip all the legal stuff like visas, passports, immigration quotas and laws.
            I’m sure they handle those things the same way you do HERE. SO, WOULD YOU MIND TELLING YOUR BUDDY, THE PRESIDENT OF MEXICO, THAT I’M ON MY WAY OVER?
            PLEASE LET HIM KNOW THAT I WILL BE EXPECTING THE FOLLOWING:
            1. FREE MEDICAL CARE FOR MY ENTIRE FAMILY.
            2.ENGLISH-SPEAKING GOVERNMENT BUREAUCRATS FOR ALL SERVICES I MIGHT NEED, WHETHER I USE THEM OR NOT.

            9. I DO PLAN TO GET A CAR AND DRIVE IN MEXICO, BUT I DON’T PLAN TO PURCHASE CAR INSURANCE, AND I PROBABLY WON’T MAKE ANY SPECIAL EFFORT TO LEARN LOCAL TRAFFIC LAWS.
            10. IN CASE ONE OF THE MEXICAN POLICE OFFICERS DOES NOT GET THE MEMO FROM THEIR PRESIDENT LO LEAVE ME ALONE, PLEASE BE SURE THAT EVERY PATROL CAR HAS AT LEAST ONE ENGLISH- SPEAKING OFFICER.
            11. I PLAN TO FLY THE U.S. FLAG FROM HOUSETOP, PUT U.S. FLAG DECALS ON MY CAR, AND HAVE A GIGANTIC CELEBRATION ON JULY 4th. I DO NOT WANT ANY COMPLAINTS OR NEGATIVE COMMENTS FROM THE LOCALS.
            12. I WOULD ALSO LIKE TO HAVE A NICE JOB WITHOUT PAYING ANY TAXES, OR HAVE ANY LABOR OR TAX LAWS ENFORCED ON ANY BUSINESS I MAY START.
            13. PLEASE HAVE THE PRESIDENT TELL ALL THE MEXICAN PEOPLE TO BE EXTREMELY NICE AND NEVER SAY CRITICAL THINGS ABOUT ME OR MY FAMILY, OR ABOUT THE STRAIN WE MIGHT PLACE ON THEIR ECONOMY.
            14. I WANT TO RECEIVE FREE FOOD STAMPS.
            15. NATURALLY, I’LL EXPECT FREE RENT SUBSIDIES.
            16. I WILL NEED INCOME TAX CREDITS SO THAT ALTHOUGH I DON’T PAY MEXICAN TAXES, I WILL RECEIVE MONEY FROM THE GOVERNMENT.
            17. PLEASE ARRANGE IT SO THAT THE MEXICAN GOVERNMENT PAYS $ 4.500.00 TO HELP ME BUY A NEW CAR.
            18. OH YES, I ALMOST FORGOT, PLEASE ENROLL ME FREE INTO THE MEXICAN SOCIAL SECURITY PROGRAM SO THAT I WILL GET MONTHLY INCOME IN RETIREMENT.
            I KNOW THIS IS AN EASY REQUEST BECAUSE YOU ALREADY DO ALL THESE THINGS FOR ALL HIS PEOPLE WHO WALK OVER TO THE U.S. FROM MEXICO. I AM SURE THAT THE PRESIDENT OF MEXICO WON’T MIND RETURNING THE FAVOR IF YOU ASK HIM NICELY……..

            You’re right the last and current generation of Mexicans have grown up around so much corruption and lack of integrity they don’t know anything else most of them. It has become ingrained in the culture. VERY sad… We don’t need them here. The same applies for most countries in Central and Latin America and that’s the worst part!

          • osamaba bin mooch michelle

            Trying to hire legal workers who applied and were the only ones who applied who were legal while working there makes me racist? OK. The other 30 or so illegals I had to hire to keep the business running were from Mexico and South America and those people loved me. No one had ever looked out for them as employees like I had and they begged me not to leave because I was leaving them with no one to defend them from the Colombian dirt bag who treated them like garbage. That all makes me a racist also. OK

          • Marie

            You are an American very honest person. The Mexicans should get out of the U.S.A. They are very corrupt people. and became our Country to the third WORLD!!!
            Mexicans, You were an Honest people in your Country?????
            I don’t think so……….

          • osamaba bin mooch michelle

            I grew up around people with integrity, really race had nothing to do with it in my case. BUT!!! I have tons of family and friends in Mexico and YES I know a lot of morally corrupt people down there. I think about that often. My conclusion comes from thinking back to the 70′s when I was still living there as a kid(I’ve been in the states and a citizen for most of my life now). The dollar was at 12.50 OLD pesos to the dollar. It was there for several years but suddenly the peso collapsed and the dollar doubled in value from one year to the next. It was brutal for Mexico as the peso slipped more and more in value and ever since then around 40 years of economic hardship and the peso’s devastating devaluation has created a culture of “survive by any means possible”. This has corrupted Mexicans for 2 generations now and today it is “normal’ for them to screw someone to get ahead if they have to. The peso’s decline was so great that 1 OLD peso is equal to 1000 New pesos of today IMAGINE IT! That is catastrophic to an economy and it’s people. I’m NOT making excuses for them but I understand why they will screw anyone to get ahead because I’ve seen it happen and definitely don’t condone it! Anyways I strive to have integrity as a person and live my live free of corruption and teach my kids the same. That is why I left that job as soon as I could. YES I AM a proud American and served in the US Air Force long ago.

          • Marie

            The Mexicans are very corrupt people. They never are going to learn to be honest. The corrupt way coming over generations, that’s sad for the young people. hey, Mexicans give a good example to your children.

            You’re right. It’s not racist. It’s nationalist.

            You don’t hate ALL Latinos, just ones from one particular country.

            It would be the same thing if you hated Chinese people, or Koreans.

            By the way, it’s still makes one sound like a douche when one advocates getting rid of one particular nationality for any reason.

            Corruption is not race related, in my rant about that industry I clearly defined that the management was made up of all races. I did define my opinion of Mexican/South American corruption and my thoughts on the reasons for it but by no means were they the only races involved and in fact were it not for the higher level white managers allowing it all and profiting from it themselves it would not go on.

          • Robert Rivers

            You speak the truth “osamaba bin mooch michelle”…the political corruption of every nation is greed driven. This country is far from innocent as it had a hand in the corruption of most all of the Latin American countries.

          • osamaba bin mooch michelle

            POWER it’s all about power because once you have it the money is automatic and these people will KILL you to maintain it. Look at the ones killed in “accidental” plane crashes and or “suicides”. They were done away with before anymore exposure could be seen. osamabas, clintons and all the others we aren’t so clear on or ever knew about they are all the same. Will kill to maintain their power.

            right on Robert, lets not forget the natives that were screwed over….btw, how come noone mentions Canadians when illegals are mentioned? Most of that country is a french province…french food for thought, yum

Why? you may ask. They say they’re Mexican and their allegiance is to Mexico. Forget that it’s the U.S. feeding and educating them. I do NOT believe this person NEVER knew she was an illegal.

            You are absolutely right . The Mexicans, illegal aliens have earned the right to be deported.as their 1st act after crossing the border id breaking THE LAW!

They Should go through the LEGAL PROCESS if they want to live here. and anyone who LOVES this COUNTRY and the FREEDOMS of AMERICA should be mandated TO LEARN ,TO SPEAK, READ AND WRITE ENGLISH!!

          Hey Marie, typing in all caps undermines the credibility of your expression of personal feelings on the subject. Also, try to keep your emotions in check enough to put all the words needed in your comments and keep the erratic punctuation to a minimum as well. While I personally do not agree with what you are trying to express here, I would have been open to hearing what you had to say if you would have bothered to express it in a more correct format. Not to be a grammar or punctuation Nazi, (I have probably made a couple mistakes in this comment myself) but if you honestly feel like you have something of value to say and want it to be respected, try being respectful first. Part of which is forming a comment that is readable.

          On a side note in regards to how you respond to those making comments, it is slightly nausetating to read the “I thought, you were a decent person…….God Bless you!!!” over and over. Invoking the blessings of God in such a passive aggressive statement is as bad as just telling them to ‘fuck off ‘, but less honest and cowardly. It does not fool any one reading it, and honestly it wont fool your God either. Say what you mean and mean what you say, it is the corner stone of honesty.

          Marie, illegal immigration is a serious issue, and when you yell such racist vitriol, it harms the cause. Does that make sense? It’s not about a hate for any nationality of people…it’s about the rule of law and what’s best for America. Not hate.

          • Marie

            You don’t understand the point, It’s not hate. It’s about to protect the American workers from the illegal aliens, they already stole American jobs.There are 25 millions Americans with no jobs. You want more invaders, intruders, illegal aliens in the Country? How about you, Do you have the responsibility to feed 20 millions illegal aliens in your own house? they fake documents, to get job, that’s correct for you? There are MORE anchor babies who wants the American Government to support them, Of course they don’t have the money, and got the Hospital services “FREE” How many Hospitals had closed the Doors?? Think about it!!!!!!

          • Marie

            Hey Joanne…The Illegal aliens , are intruders, invaders. They have earned the right to be deported.as their 1st act after crossing the BORDER is Breaking the aAmerican Law!! We should allow no one who breaks the Law by entering this COUNTRY to Remain.They should go to the legal process IF They want to live here.The illegal aliens don’t deserve any reward, They HATE US, They don’t have any respect for American FLAG or OUR LAWS.They come here demanding rights, That they are not ENTITLED TOO. THEY ABUSE the American System…….Mexicans go back to your beloved Country.go away. U.S.A.don’t have any Responsibility of the AMNESTY for illegal aliens. Mexicans, Ask the Mexican President to help all of you MEXICANS, Or ask to CHAPO GUZMAN who has a lot money, He is the most dangerous drug dealer in the World.

            The SSN question is a valid one, did her mom lie when she applied for her when she was a child, there had to be some forgeries somewhere/fraud somewhere along the line by relatives if not herself.

          • diversity

            she resigned because she just learned she was illegal

          • Rae Gillette

            Sorry the article states that she didn’t know for any “years” only for a very few weeks/months and no doubt she was trying to see what she could do about it. Judge only after you have experienced time in her shoes. She has probably helped many self-righteous AZ citizens.

          • cricket23

            The article indicated that she found out AFTER the fact, so resigned,I would LOVE to see that much moral rectitude displayed by our President, his non-elected czars, and much of our congress and practically all of the media. BTW, you have a crystal ball or some higher authority that told you it was no big deal?

          • Hans

            I really want to believe that she didn’t know, but how does someone work at a job for years and pay state and federal taxes, using a social security number that an illegal wouldn’t have in the first place? Very confusing.

          • antiwoody2347

            There are persons in much higher positions in this country who can’t explain where they got their dubious SSN–like a guy who has one from Connecticut who never lived there.

          • antiwoody2347

            Story says she only found out recently, so if she was telling the truth about it, it would have been good or better if she had taken the matter up herself as soon as she knew rather than (if the story is clear) having it outed due to her brother applying for a passport and it all coming to light then and she had known for awhile herself–like a better timeline or details. Either way I don’t feel sorry for her parents. Feel sorry for her if her family hid the situation from her. Wouldn’t know today which department was even the right one to go to, who would throw you in jail immediately or deport you or let you apply or tell you to wait for Congress to keep mucking up the whole ball of wax since for all we know they may retroactively give all the illegals a break back to the 1980′s or who knows what they may be cooking up in D.

        Patrick , do you really believe that she did’nt know she was here illegally , she knew and her resignation serves two purposes 1. She does’nt go to prison for falsifying her illegal status when she applied for the az. department of public safety .
        2. The Az. department of public safety saves face over their mickey mouse back round check. All the cases she worked on during her time on in the AZ D.P.S. were dismissed or had to be retrialed .
        You can fool some people some of the time but you can’t fool some of the people all the time .Believe me shes not the only illegal getting away with this criminal act .

    • Gary Austin

      I don’t understand how this could happen by accident, unless her family told her that she was a citizen; then provided her with a fake birth certificate. It would have to be one that an employee of the vital statistics department was bribed to create, which actually happens quite often. That’s why vital statistics can’t be trusted to verify birth documents. In states where sworn law officers are required to be citizens the applicant must produce valid naturalization papers, or a valid berth certificate. These must remain on file and are subject to audit.

    • kmojo

      How old do you think this illegal is, she looks at least 40, so lets see if you subtract 13 from 40 I believe that is 27. So you tell me someone that is 27 or lets just say she was 20 when she was hired, do you really think someone that age would not know they were illegal.
      Also the individuals that hired her should be fired for not checking her background.

  • Tommy

    I think her service to our country and the State of Arizona should be enough for a automatic declaration of American citizenship. She served and protected the people of America and Arizona valiantly. She is an outstanding example of why some illegal immigrants should be given their citizenship for exemplary behaviour while some natural born citizens disgrace our heritage with the behaviour of a barbarian.

      I am an immigrant and find it offensive to allow someone citizenship without due process. Who knows who her family is? Once a citizen she can sponsor others within her family to move into the US. When applying for residency to the US they perform an extensive background check. Some taking as long as she has been in the country. Took my family six years. Hate to sound callous but too bad so sad. Blame your parents for doing the wrong thing, life sucks sometimes.

            Red as funny as that was, I have to disagree traffic cops are in a better position to lose their lives then most SWAT members and ironically they are responsible for catching more bad guys then any other member of law enforcement.
            A traffic stop can go from zero to death in as fast as a guy can decide to pull a trigger or take a ticket and drive off, a traffic cop doesn’t know if the guy or gal behind the wheel is a wanted felon or a Chaplin on the way to church, having to assess in micro seconds if the driver is a threat or not and already behind the power curve, react to that threat .
            BTW I am not a traffic cop.

    • Gene Pratt

      Good post I feel as you do she has served and protected as a law officer for 13 years, let her have US citizenship and keep her job as she is a good officer or they would say she was not, she is a good example of what good people can do if given a chance!!!

      • Mark

        I agree with Gene and Tommy. According to the article, she has been a good officer and had recently found out about her immigration status. She did the honorable thing by resigning. She Should be given an opportunity to fix her immigration status and get her job back. I’m astounded by all the racist comments that I’ve read here. I guess some people look for any opportunity to spew their racist comments.

        • Red

          No such thing as a “native” American…we all came here from Asia, Africa or Europe. The cold hard fact is that aboriginal tribes on the American continents were failing to survive long before Europeans came here. Incas, Mayans, Pueblo, etc., etc. were all failing to thrive. Had it not been for Europeans propping them up, they would likely be extinct by now. I know it ain’t pretty and y’all ain’t gonna like it, but it is true.

        • Lexi Thomas

          You’re not getting the picture: The reason we say “get out” is because all the white men did was take and take from mother nature and didnt give back. White man took our sacred lands away from us and said that they would give them back if WE gave up our culture and become Americanized. White people killed native children, made Native women sterile so that we couldn’t grow in numbers. Why did white man do this, some may ask? Well the answer is plain and simple: White man didn’t like the fact that we FOUGHT BACK. White man raped the land, reduced the Native population, took advantage of our ignorance concerning ALCOHOL. Natives have a hard time with alcohol because we haven’t been drinking it for as long as the white man has. White man killed our food supply just so he could get his greedy hands on the west, forcing millions of natives to lose their homes, families, and essentially, their way of life. Scary fact: HALF OF THE NATIVE AMERICANS TODAY DO NOT EVEN KNOW THEIR TRIBAL LANGUAGE OR THEIR CUSTOMS. The reason? White man took it away from us. I’m a 16 year old girl and I give many fucks about my native heritage. Half of the facts I’ve presented to you aren’t the ones you see in history textbooks, and that’s because white man wrote the history books. Today, our precious and beautiful Earth is dying and withering away, all for the sake of WHITE MAN’S GREED.

          • 66lima

            You are absolutely right about Americans Indians taking a beating and being mistreated by Europeans TWO or THREE HUNDRED YEARS GO.
            Now let’s get past that part.
            You say the white man did not give back to nature.
            Is that why we have millions of acres a forests planted by paper companies like Georgia Pacific and Wyerhouser?

            Is that why we have dams that control flooding and erosion and death to people?
            Is that why we have a cure for polio and ways to treat a myriad of diseases?
            Is that why we grow millions of acres of wheat , corn, and everything we eat in this country plus feeding the rest of the world?
            Is that why we have millions of acres of national parks that are untouched by man and nature preserves for animals and lakes created by man made dams full of fish?
            Is that why we have a management program for wildlife in every state and county in the country?

            I think by in large the Indiana population is better off in some ways.
            And worse off in others. Just like the white population.
            Some do well and some do not just like other cultures.

            Your comments could be construed as racists by some but not by me.

            Different groups of people view others with some trepidation.
            It has been like that since the beginning of time and will always be that way.

            But to your point about the white man not giving back to nature, I think you are wrong.

          • Lexi Thomas

            I see your point, and I apologize for excluding the actions taken to preserve the environment. I did not mean to come off as racist, if I have offended anyone. In the heat of the moment, I forgot all about the national parks. But, I must also disagree with you. If people hadn’t done the whole “manifest destiny” idea, we wouldn’t have to form these management programs, and we wouldn’t have to section off land as an afterthought of growing industrialization; and I’ll add that yes, without early european immigrants, we wouldn’t have the technology we have today. But the land that was once beautiful and expanse is now full of pollution, tall buildings, and too many people. And now we are finally taking action to make sure our earth doesn’t become a barren wasteland? But I have finally resigned to agree with your point of view, for it is sensible, and I apologize for my bias on the subject; I am very compassionate for people that have been wronged for no reason. Once again, I apologize. After all, to err is human.

          • 66lima

            I am not perfect either.

            There is so much open land in this country it is just astounding.
            I don’t understand how people can live in big cities but I am in same ways happy that they do.
            It keeps them out of my way our here in the countryside.
            And I can usually avoid the big cities in my travels with a few exceptions.

            You take care of yourself and have a great year in 2014.

  • Brian MacBain

    For exception of Marie, I agree with the other posts (James P Jr Bettes, David Casillas, and Tommy). The report stated she was an excellent officer and should be able to submit for citizenship. She should not been fired or ask to resign, but put on administrative desk duty. However, this brings into question on how she got the position in the first place. Like all job applications, it asks for your SSN. What did she put in for her SSN? Remember, this is 13yrs ago, did illegals get SSN from USA? I ask that because I do not know. If not, then she had some knowledge that she was not a US citizen.

    • sanderdog

      Well, if she lied to get a SS number that would be a problem. But, likely at her age no one was really checking when she signed up at 18. Her mom probably told her a bunch of lies. Now children have to get a number immediately. Cradle to grave Id number.

    • Dan Wosnitzky

      with your question… maybe arizona states process was faulty,, no hers..let her take the citizen ship exam …

    • Shell

      You can fake SSN cards and all that maybe her parents did that.

    • Pat

      Either her or her mother could have purchased a false SSN card. This is all really crazy. The police department has no choice, they must fire her. We are a country of laws and to say we should overlook this one is wrong. If she truly is dedicated to her job and life, she could apply for legal status and get her citizenship. Though this may not seem fair after all her year of exemplary service, I agree but as I keep telling the children I work with – life is not fair! It’s not fair to put her ahead of others who are waiting patiently for their legal status and citizenship. I don’t hate anyone and I have fond memories of lots of fun camping trips down in Mexico with my Mexican friends when I lived in So. Ca in the military. I grew up in the San Joaquin Valley so most of my friends were children of (or grandchildren of) illegal immigrants. But I believe the law should apply here, and as an officer of the law, she cannot expect exceptions to be made as we, as taxpayers should not expect selective application of the law from her and fellow police officers.

  • Hayley Shaver

    We’re not gonna know one way or another if she knew she wasn’t a citizen before her brother applied for a passport. Ifshe didn’t know and her parents or relatives falsified documents for her, they should be ashamed. If she did know, it’s appropriate she quit and not get her law enforcement job back until or if she becomes a citizen. The law says only citizens can be law enforcers.

  • Chris green

    Fast track her application. I’m sure there’s a police union lawyer that would help her get her citizenship.

    • MUZZRATSFUKPIGS

      F6CK THE UNIONS ! DESTROYERS OF LIVES !!!

  • sanderdog

    This is an example of the need for reform, not wholesale amnesty. She did not create this problem. Her mother did. She should be granted a fast track to citizenship because of her outstanding service. People who knowingly illegally enter should never be allowed full citizenship. Grant them work visas or deport them but no free ride for breaking the law. Expand the work visa programs to reduce the need for illegal entry. End the birthright citizenship which has been abused by people from many nations. Use e-verify to end jobs for people without visas or citizenship. We trusted the liberals to secure the border once. Never again.

    • jlh243_1

      “Reduce the NEED for illegal entry”? There is NO NEED for illegal entry, it is CRIMINAL you dolt.

    • Red

      You don’t actually know all that for a fact. Just because she SAYS her mother deceived her and the authorities, doesn’t make it a fact. Every time an employer submits a W-2 (at year end) to the Social Security Administration it is validated against a database. If it doesn’t match the SSA’s records, they contact the employer for a correction. That means someone, somewhere applied for a SSN using forged documents, else the SSN would be rejected. That is the way the system works.

  • marmo

    I agree, when a person contributes to society as she has, she should receive her citizenship after doing the studying to get it, take the oath as she already did I am sure for the highway patrol, re-instate her to her job. its the free loaders that should be sent back to mexico.

        I came to this country legally. went to Vietnam as a non citizen. received a top secret gov. clearance that most Americans cant get to guard stuff that few people ever see. got out of the service in 69 and wanted to be a police officer. a no go because I wasn’t a citizen. I started my paperwork while in the military and it took till 1983 for me to get it because we were giving fast-track to all the Vietnamese that came over. so in short I did it right almost died from wounds received in combat and I had to wait 15 years to get my piece of paper. why is she so special.

    It seems that Joaquin Castro works for the China Imperium including India and their satellites countries like Mexico. Human Traffic between DIF Mexico to CPS San Antonio of Mexican, children from India and Chinese children. Allowing investment of American and Mexican mafias in San Antonio. Shame on Joaquin Castro. The true will come soon.
    Calderon and his wife controlled DIF Mexico, the only entity similar to Child Protective Services in USA and with legal authority to USCIS (Immigration), Calderon and his wife were the only taking decision of adoption in Mexico through the States, instead of help many children to legalize their situation in the States, they used them as a personal business, each child more than 15,000.00 USD, they were coming from China, India and also Mexican children to be given in adoption in the States, no body (Mexican, Mexican American families), even the personnel in DIF Mexico knows that DIF is the only legal entity recognized by USCIS to do that. Only my estimates annually with Chinese children are more 200 million dollars http://firstlightforum.wordpress.com/2012/10/25/why-the-jews-sacrifice-babies-and-eat-gentile-blood-in-the-matzo/ , but it was only a personal business of Calderon and Fox that no Mexican or Mexican American was beneficiated.

        ACraig – How is the SGM telling the truth an indication of poor schooling? To have reached his/her rank as an enlisted member the education requirements are at least that of a Masters. I’m thinking you must be an Obama supporter at best or a commie at worst!

          That’s a bunch of lies dude, you don’t need a Masters to be SGM so don’t lie to people.

            TTH True you don’t need a Master but the military education and experience rivals that of a Masters, if not surpasses a Masters. Last I checked most colleges that offer a masters program didn’t require conducting business while under fire and still make a time line, one of the many reasons that big business is looking for SNCO’s such as SFC, MSG/1SG’s and SGM’s.

      Great point. BTW, why would you think Obama has had a background check?

      • PaC SGM (R)

        For the job description of CINC and being able to call for a nuclear strike package one would assume it would be a pretty high clearance.
        But you bring up a good point obviously someone dropped the ball.
        Just to get a secret clearance you go through a pretty intensive back ground check proof of good character, Credit check, SSN for advance clearances they go pretty far back into your past along with a polygraph in some cases.
        Not sure as far as AZ goes but one of my men I served in Iraq with recently got a job on the NJSP and used me as a reference, the questions that the investigators were asking were pretty intense.
        IMHO they either had some false documentation or someone knew.

    • Guest

      Because we all know the background vetting is exactly the same for people who are running for President as for people who are becoming police officers right? lol you are in charge of people in the military? Man I’m glad I got out. BTW becoming a sgm and earning a masters is apples and oranges, I seriously doubt the person who wrote this sentence could get through the first semester of community college. That is why they the college educated. Keep thinking Obama is a foreigner, it makes you look soooooooo smat.

      • PaC SGM (R)

        Obviously the vetting would be more through for the CINC, that is the point, now why don’t you tell us again when you made SGM and everything you learned in your vast experience as an “enlisted man” there high speed.
        Better yet let us know what fortune 500 company that you run and your hiring practices.
        You strike me as someone that either couldn’t make the grade and bounced or you were bounced out on the TDP having issues with any one of a higher rank. I have seen a lot of “former” service members with your attitude and every one was an unfortunate failure and had someone else to blame for their failure to adjust to service.

    Now this is a shame. No fault of her own. This is the type of hard working dedicated person that deserves to allowed to remain here, get her citizenship, and go back to work as a trooper

    • TexasTemplar

      she can’t get citizenship. She must be either a legal permanent resident alien or apply from her home country for citizenship. There is no provision for other. ANY attempt to subvert the laws is illegal and fraud.

  • Kevin

    Even though she is an illegal alien, I have more respect for her than most others. At least she goes to work every day & PAYS TAXES!!!!

  • 1tiredVAtaxpayer

    Ok, no way should she get a fast tracked visa – why because then she would sponsor the very person who broke the law in the first place her mother – the mother should have to return to her country. We do not need work visas here in the US – why because we have MILLIONS of people out of work right now that they should be given to AMERICANS first. Stop the free wheeling. I know an entire family who waited over 10 years in their native country until their visas and sponsorship was APPROVED before they came here. They did not jump the boarder. Sick that so many jumped the boarder popped out kids to “get the kids to be citizens” and then use the kids to stay here. If there was two parents on drugs that were to go to prison they would not – just not sentence one because of the kids – nope the kids would go into foster care – well that is what should happen to the kids of the people who broke the law to come here that want to say their kids are Americans this is all they know – well ok that is the law – but that does NOT give you a free pass to staying – kids can either go with the parents or go into foster care – parents choice. Although NO free medical or college expenses on our tax dollars.

  • Gene Pratt

    I think this is the type of person who after all these years as a decorated officer of the law should be granted AMERICAN citizenship as she is working hard and making a difference, the kind of ILLEGALS I hate are the ones obamanation is trying to bring into our country, the illegals who would make the crime rate go up and who want to rape our women or sodomize our boys, these are the sick dogs we dont need, this lady is at least setting an example for others and like our forefathers should be allowed to become a citizen and be a police officer if she wants as she has a sense of being useful instead of collecting welfare, etc, I say let her take the citizenship test and become a legal citizen, it is not her fault and I respect her for doing a job that is really hard and being a good cop, PERIOD!!!

    • TexasTemplar

      An illegal alien resident CANNOT even apply for citizenship, much less take the test. There is NO LAW that allows for that.

  • 1tiredVAtaxpayer

    oh and people who are American citizens whose parents come here illegally – KNOW – they are not stupid. They are smart they dodge and have a hand out. I also firmly believe anyone that has a parent that was illegally here in this country should not be provided a clearance of any level. The seed of deceit is there. They know their parent is here illegally and should not have access to classified information at any level. Why should they be rewarded for failing to abide by our laws.

    • Michelle

      WHAT HANDOUT????? SHE HAD A GOD DAMN JOB!

  • Guest

    Do you people have any idea what she had to go through in the way of a background check to even join the state patrol? I’m sure that 80% of the people commenting here could not pass the background check. I think the whole thing is really sad. She has proven her alliance to the U.S.

    • Michael B

      Immigration law doesn’t care about “allegiance,” If she was born outside of the country to parents who were not US citizens, she’s an alien.

  • Michelle

    hey Marie, your ignorant, and a racist. Did you even read the god damn article or just running your hateful mouth after hearing she was from mexico? And whoever said illegals know,what if she came into the country as a child and was never actually told she was not a citizen? How exactly would she know? The LAW didnt even know. What is she supposed to do? Say, “well im 18 now and not white, id better check and make sure my entire family, the people im supposed to trust with my life were not lying to me my entire existance and make sure im not an illegal.” Simpleton

    • Michael B

      In order for her to apply for the job as a trooper, she needed to present a birth certificate and social security card.

      It’s possible that her parents bought her fake documents when she was 5 or 15 without telling her… but quite odd.

    • TexasTemplar

      yes, that’s EXACTLY what she should have, or any other reasonable person, would have done.

  • 7citizen7

    Making exceptions for the law is what Obama is good at—exempting so many people from Obamacare, exempting people from being prosecuted for criminal behavior, etc. Din’t we become angry with the teen that killed 4 people in a wreck while he was intoxicated and got a sentence of probation and spending time on a luxury ranch in California rather than go to jail?? Well, if that happened, then when a law is a law, it should be for EVERYONE, no exceptions. It is sad that this young lady’s parents lied to her. I truly feel sorry for her and I have a heartfelt “thank you for your service” in my heart. However, she is here ILLEGALLY. She needs to go through the proper channels to gain her citizenship. Yes, in her case, hopefully those proceedings will be expedited so she can take the oath of citizenship very soon.

  • Chris Liberal

    Cool!! I’m guessing that there weren’t enough fully qualified “American” applicants that the Arizona government was forced to hire this “illegal alien” who was willing to uphold the law and lay her life on the line, in order to keep the citizens of the state of Arizona safe. lol

  • ndfinnlander

    Didnt know she was illegal? Ya sure and I dont know that my ancestors came thru Ellis Island either. One more wetback excuse. Round them all up, send them back and put armed guards every 1/4 mile on the border with shoot first and ask later orders. WE ARE BEING INVADED WHICH IS AN ACT OF WAR!!!

  • Paul Mileski

      She can’t. Only lawful permanent residents can become US Citizens. She must leave the US and apply for a visa from whatever country she was born in.

  • Ann Hertzog Repine

    Back up…. how does one get into the police academy without showing their birth certificate? or a drivers license?

As a Mexican, I do understand the anger these illegals playing the emotional blackmail card cause.

  • Christoph Harvey

    What kind of background check does the state of Arizona do. She might be an upstanding person but what about the next oversight. Like a wanted criminal from another country using false ID.

  • Mike Barry

    Who
    the hell did her background investigation? He should be fired also. How does it
    take 13 years to discover that a trooper is here illegally? Didn’t she ever
    take a DHS training class that require a security clearance? There has to be
    more to this. Now ever one of her arrests that resulted in a conviction can be overturned because the arrests were, technically, illegal. Someone’s head should roll for this.

  • Jerry Hernandez

    You would think working so long she would have applied and become naturalized citizen but she failed to do so. She gets no sympathy from me. She knew she was illegal and could have done something about it. It’s laziness!

    • Michael B

      It’s possible that her parents lied to her, and that she never knew she was carried over the border as a small kid. There is no procedure for an illegal to apply for citizenship.

  • Dave

    I don’t understand how she couldn’t know she was not here legally, but we simply need more information than this article gives. All it says is they gov’t found out because her brother applied for a passport and that’s when they found out he had a sister who was a state police officer. . They didn’t know he had a sister before that?? So her brother is in the military, and is legal, but his sister is not?? Are their parents still her illegally?? Much more information is needed with this story to have a reasonable discussion here.

  • Dave

    So after everyone found out and she resigned, was she deported or allowed to live here indefinitely like all the other know illegals in this country? Obviously her parents are here illegally if she was here illegally. Are they going to be deported any time soon? I agree that at least she was a productive member of society, but the whole thing is just odd that no one knew for so long, and then her brother simply applies for a passport and all of this comes to light. The story is missing some key information.

  • James Patrick Boone

    How is it that she “didn’t know.?” Wasn’t there some point in her life where she was required to provide a birth certificate? Well, maybe these days you can just have someone fill out the application for you, and put an “X” for your signature.

  • Gale Lett

    Oh well, so she’s here illegally, not her fault, she didn’t know until recently. Besides Obama is president and he’s not a U. S. citizen either. What’s good for the goose and all that.

  • Jose CUnha

    …sad, she may have been a good deputy. We need to focus on reforming laws to give these people a FAIR way to resolve their status, fair for them, and fair for those who are obeying the laws. We need to help the ones who are here living productive lives and contributing to society. This should be our first concern, not the legions who continue to flood in only to further tax our resources and contribute nothing.

    • women 99

      WE DO NOT NEED TO REFORM THE LAWS. WE NEED TO ENFORCE THE LAWS.
      She could always join the military and gain access to citizenship as her brother did. OUR LAWS ARE FINE JUST ENFORCE THEM

      • Jose CUnha

        Respectfully disagree. I think we need to protect our borders, stop this kind of thing from repeating itself. Not only for cops but for students, and certainly in instances like the one in California where an illegal has been licensed to practice law. Its ridiculous. No consequences for breaking the law blatantly for years, and now he represents it? But we can certainly make some fair allowances for people who have come here and been contributors and not a burden, even if we penalize them harshly with increased taxes and restricted rights for a while for breaking the law and not paying taxes. They should have to make amends, otherwise the law itself becomes a joke. But what do we benefit from ruining the lives of someone like this officer, while welcoming scumbags who do nothing but sell drugs and get on public assistance with open arms? My opinion, anyway.

  • lancelot

    Illegal IS still illegal. How can she give any sort of tickets or arrest anyone? Her validity would be challenged in court. ANYONE she has EVER arrested can now come back and get re-tried. This is NOT a good thing at all!

  • Safariamerica

    Ireally feel bad that her family has put her in the position and it’s her brother, too. They were raised as if they were US citizens. The law is the law. Her parents should be held responsible for the “lie” but these kids do have options if they have a good attorney. Or they could go back by their families origins and become community examples and do mentoring to improve living conditions in their parents native country. Not all illegals are Mexican, too. They come from all over the world! I get so tired of illegals being cited as being Mexican. Some people really need to do more research on illegal aliens. If you want to understand the situation education is the key. This history also proves that children of illegals can and may not have a clue about their status. They can and do make their lives by becoming productive employees. It will be interesting to see if exception is granted through the legal process.

  • Alasha12

    What’s so amazing about this story and the subsequent comments listed below is that . No one talks about the investigator who did the background . How is it possible that people can expect someone who clearly broke the law should benefit from that idea . Is it possible that someone can simply assume they are American how is that possible . I say it all the time we as African Americans and those that are Caucasians fight this imaginary fight against one another with hate in the middle and this allows all types of people to come here and take benefit of what is offered in this country . I watch it everyday simple things . Like I watch how in Brooklyn NY if they catch African American people going through recycling bins on private property they get arrested of fined . But here in queens they rampantly do it without persecution that is just a small example but it is important. Another example is how recently in New York you had a crack down on the use of welfare benefits being used for cash . Yet the only ones busted on camera were those if Chinese decent . Yet everyday you see in my community the abuse of those same benefits by the Jewish community . But you will never see that made public . Also there are several parks and areas where African Americans are told you have to leave the park or face prosecution but yet a part of Flushing meadow park is continuously over run after dusk by Hispanic people yet the police do nothing but if you speak up you are called a bigot or worse . So there is a lot if issues that happen everyday . So I appeal to the commenters lets come together to find solutions so that we are not divided any more

      Yeah, we took ‘half of Mexico’, the half with the good roads!

      Fact is that the vast majority of Mexicans and Mexican-Americans, even long established families, came here after the Yankee took over the Southwest and created its thriving economy.

  • liv and luv life

    It’s to bad the government in Mexico is so corrupt and does not care about their own people, that’s why most of them come here, they work for sub standard wages and take the jobs Americans refuse to take because lazy Americans would rather make more on sucking the rest of us dry by being on welfare, which is coming out of the other of us who work hard to make a living. Who then is the real culprit here? I am not siding with the people on the other side of the border however, but we all need to think about this before we condemn some one.

    • osamaba bin mooch michelle

      YES!! This is one BIG part of the problem. Last year the gov implemented new minimum wage that amounts to 80-90 cents AN HOUR !!!! IMAGINE THAT!!! Less than a dollar an hour for an 8 hour day of work. When they got paid per day it was lest than 10 dollars a day!!!!! It’s no wonder they are soooo motivated to be here!

      • osamaba bin mooch michelle

        Their reasoning was most people work like 12 freaking hours a day so hourly they stood to make more than the less than the 10 dollars per day salary. A tiny fraction more given they would get paid hourly for their usual 10 to 12 hour days. INCREDIBLE!!! There were several riots over this insult but as usual in the end they grinned and bared it at the end of a military assault rifle.

    Another truth for you people, most illegals do pay taxes. The media under the control of our corrupt govt will never spill out the truth. The media is a powerful asset for control. I had found documentations in PDF files that states that, although that document is pretty old.

    • M_Young

      Most illegals are in low paying jobs. The pay some taxes, but not enough to cover the cost of the services they consume. I guy flipping burgers at McDonalds (in California, McDonalds employees are always Mexicans) doesn’t make enough to pay for his 3 kids in the school system. Having a teen, living at home, do the job (as was the case 20-30 years ago) makes more fiscal sense.

  • Barth Massey

    They should allow her to keep her job while she studies for her Citizenship Test. She’s the type we want to keep. She has proven to be a loyal person to America and has an outstanding work performance in her law enforcement job. Why would we want to send her packing…She can be my partner any time. Wait I retired almost two years ago after more than 32 years in law enforcement and eleven years in the Marines. Yes, if I was still on the job I would want her as a partner. I hope the bureaucrats can work this out so she can be reinstated and become an American Citizen. Semper Fidelis.

    “Alien?” She looks like a homosapien to me.

  • disqus_xmiicUE99w

    What documentation did she provide on her application OR does Arizona not require proof of citizenship or any other documents required of the American citizens….

  • gezzr

    When I first read this several weeks ago I couldn’t quite figure out where/how I stood on this… After time to think about it I can honestly say, KUDOS, to this young lady for having a moral compass and conviction of purpose to “resign” knowing that she had inadvertently committed a crime. Hat’s off to you lady!!!

    • women 99

      can you read? The article says the Law requires all police officers to be a citizen?
      Maybe you can’t read!

      • gezzr

        Lady you need to re-read my comment again… Let me spell it out for you again… THE FACT that when she found out she was not a CITIZEN and had inadvertently broke the LAW SHE RESIGNED! I’m sorry that I blogged something that taxed your reading comprehension!

    • Peoriaboy

      What a way to deliver something like a suitcase b–b just a trusty lady that lied to get on the force and the next thing you know there is three hundred thousand folks gone because no one checked and all of these heart felt folks such a great person.

  • fitzzz

    Good example of why we need profiling
    and need to do background checks
    If employers hire illegals , they should be forced to pay heavy fines

  • Bellaire Boy

    Can anybody in this discussion spell or use grammar correctly? Just reading these posts makes my skin crawl.

    • MisterManReturns

      The Internet has given a voice to the ignorant.

  • scottbutane

    She is a criminal and should be prosecuted.

  • C@ctu$Dave

    So sad that there still people like Marie. Probably has no education and making minimum wage. Because if Marie had any wisdom in her, she would know that Mexicans were here in the Southwest before most Europeans came into the United States through Ellis Island which started in 1892. Marie just look around you, the names of some of the largest cities in the US have Spanish ( Mexican) names. It wasn’t a pilgram that gave them their names. As for Carman, She should bereinstated and given the opportunity the apply for citizenship. But you have to consider is happen in Arizona, and you have people like Sheriff Joe, Russel Peirce , Gov. Brewer and Marie living in the Great State of Arizona, Land of the Brave, Home of the Mexican.

  • dugsterdiver

    Undocumented

  • rdoering

    She’s definitely proven herself, can’t she just apply for citizenship and get her job back? It seems extreme to force her out of her job when she could become a citizen and continue serving society in a positive way.

  • Allen Watkins

    She needs to go to prison where her fellow criminals are, then thrown back to mex.

  • mjnellett

    I agree with Mr Bettes, Let Ms Figueroa get her citizenship papers (expedited) and let Arizona give her job back. Arizona might even consider getting her a green card and retaining her in the offices as a civilian worker UNTIL she gets her citizenship papers. Her dilemma was created by her family NOT disclosing to her the truth about their status. She did the honorable thing and resigned. Not ALL illegals are looking for a free ride and this lady has proven it by her exemplary job ratings. Speaking of obeying the law have any of you haters called Obama yet and told him how you feel about obey the law???

    • matt

      She would need to get a green card to legally work……

  • jed_hoyer

    deport her. americans wouldn’t be allowed to work illegally in mexico so we should be the same way.

  • Robert Dee

    Her Mother and the people who hired her should serve jail time for this.

  • zeke

    These are the kind of immigrants USA needs. Let her stay and keep her job. However, deport her Mom and Dad back so fast it’ll make their head spin!

  • Patrick Henry

    what was she using for a SS number? how was she doing her taxes???

    • matt

      The IRS wasn’t harassing her, just the citizens….

  • John Cate

    If she honestly didn’t know, then for crying out loud, let her become a U.S. citizen and then give her job back. She sounds like the kind of immigrant we WANT in this country–one who comes here and actually contributes something positive to our society.

  • Doug

    Ya”ll ought to get over yourselves. The reason that the illegals are here is they do all of the crappy jobs that our “citizens” do not want to do. I know a vintner that was in the middle of a farm workers strike. He said that the growers thought that they could just hire some local people to do the harvest. Allot of young people came to do the work. It took just 2 days for them to decide that it was better to give the workers their demands. The “citizens” were so bad that some growers almost lost money. The farm workers have a better work ethic that the lackluster “citizens.” I do not like the illegal aliens but they are a part of our economy because they do the jobs that our “citizens” do not want to do or refuse to do

    • M_Young

      Only 2% of illegals work in agriculture. The rest do jobs that Americans will do, or jobs that shouldn’t be ‘jobs’ at all (30 year old men washing cars or mowing lawns is a loser for the economy when they have 3 kids in the school system).

      BTW lots of people are willing to pick wine grapes and it isn’t particularly hard.

    • matt

      I know plenty of roofers, rockers, laborers who lost their livelihood due to illegals working for slave wages. As far as the vintner you know I bet he was paying slave wages……. I guess slavery is alive and well in America; only it’s the Mexicans…

      • Doug

        Sorry for your friends. The vintner was paying wages that were comparable to the standard. It is just the Mexicans were so much better that the kids that were hired to replace the workers If they had kept the sub workers on alot of the crop would have been wasted because the rate that the subs were working would have lost a portion of the crop that was not financially viable. the subs did not have the ability to perform their jobs as good as the experienced workers. It was better to give in to the demands of the workers so as not to loose money with the whole crop

  • smitty6398

    Here’s a chance for {youknowwho} to use that PEN in a way I believe the majority of Americans would agree with

  • ebola131

    Whose Social Security number did she appropriate?
    Mail fraud, tax fraud, SS fraud….the years add up.

  • Bambucha

    She has been working, probably paying taxes, probably an asset to the community. These are the type of people that America needs. If it is proven true that she had no knowledge of her status, she should go through citizenship proceedings and become a citizen. Her mom however, needs to be expelled, fined, then probably the daughter and son may sponsor her back into the U.S. legally.
    If anything, the son as a legal member of the Armed forces is afforded citizenship for serving. He may then legally sponsor the mom, and temporarily the sister, until she settles the citizenship paperwork. Carmen was an exemplary officer before becoming a detective, she can do it again.

  • orihime

    Poor officer, I hope things work out for her. It’s not like she committed perjury on purpose…..

  • barb patton

    I would rather trust her than the illegal alien – and muslim to boot – squatting in the white house

  • oldfuzz695

    Justice tempered with mercy. If we don’t have it, we are all lost souls. Military service gets you citizenship. Day in and day out, she most likely was exposed to more danger than most soldiers. Award her citizenship and her job back.

  • David

    Not all mexicans are bad I have alot of mexican friends here in USA I dont look at their skins but whats inside (their hearts)thats what count

    • matt

      yep…..

    • gobnait

      This has nothing to do with skin color or ethnicity. We live in a civil society wherein all people are bound to obey its laws. End of story.

  • VO142857

    Because of it’s stoopiid anti-immigration stance, Arizona lost a good public servant.

    • matt

      Without citizenship or a green card, she cannot legally work in the United States….. Nothing to do with Arizona…..

    • Tim Kern

      …and because she illegally held the job, an American didn’t.

  • Douglas W. Rodrigues

    If she thought that she was an American, then she has the mindset of an American. I hope the “system” gives her a break.

  • shawn duncan

    didn’t they do a background check on her when she applied for the job.

  • Peoriaboy

    Ya I heard the president called her and tried to convince her to have her records sealed,I guess she didn’t respond fast enough or didn’t have the money.

  • jdws

    I really can’t believe all the comments. This is sad to see that our own society is this harsh. Not all of the mexicans that come here illegally are liars and thieves nor do they deserve to be treated as such. Most are some of the hardest workers and in this case this officer proved it. And Marie, for you to say they need to die then say respect and love and bring God into the mix just shows you’re ignorance. You should be ashamed of yourself and when you die god will judge you just as harshly as you judge the mexican people. You are far from perfect so the fact that you think you can judge them just shows how misguided you truely are. If i belived in a religion i would pray for you but i don’t becuase people like you hide behind it and use it to justify all you’re actions. People like you are the true currupt.

    • matt

      Not all Mexicans are bad but if you believe in God or smaller government you are evil???? Show your ignorance……..

      • jdws

        Thats not what I said so it shows your ignorance because you want to put words in my mouth.

    • gobnait

      She is not a child and certainly would have had to provide a birth certificate to attend school, get a SSN and a dr lic. and if she knew, then she willfully and deliberately committed fraud. No one is exempt from the rule of law.

    • Tim Kern

      “Not all of the mexicans [sic] that come here illegally are liars and thieves…” No, but they ARE all criminals.

      • jdws

        I’m not saying that they’re not breaking the law all i said was not all of them can be depicted as horrible bad people. If that was the case then the opinion of other people from other countries that the American person being lazy, belligerent, hostile, and uncontrollable then fits every American in the United States but thats not true because there are still some that that bust their ass to make a living while others are lazy breaking the laws some more severly than coming into the country illegally. Half the jobs they do most americans don’t want to do because they feel they are above it. And not all mexicans are criminals. Honestly if you want a history lesson heres one for you everyone knows. The only true natives in the United States are the Native Americans. Everyone flocked to “the New World” for a new start just like Mexicans. They leave because of the mass killings,kidnappings, and corruption only to come here and find it here to the difference is they can get a job.

  • Captainbob Surfdawg

    one look at her and you can tell she’s a wet back alien…is everyone this dumb in arizona ?

  • john4637

    Sad that the criminal acts of parents can place their children in such tenuous positions later on. This also goes to show just how deep the tentacles of illegal immigration may be rooted in American society.

  • George Hilliard

    Oh, the webs we weave when first we try to deceive.
    I wonder if we can make it right, for her. We seem to be good at tracking down the ones that aren’t hiding.

  • GaryGuillermo

    Deport her.

  • M_Young

    Being a police officer is a prized position — good job secuirty, benefits, and fairly decent pay. No matter how good a job she did, this lady took that job away from an American citizen who likely would have done just as good a job. He or she is the person whose story is never told.

  • PESully

    If she truly has a very good record, then let her get her citizenship and get her job back….she should not be held accountable for the “sins” of her parents.

  • TIRED OF IT

  • 11B20

    I’ll bet she was better at her job than those born here

    • gobnait

      Apparently not. She surely swore an oath to uphold the law- ALL Laws. she can say she never knew but then answer the question: how did she obtain an SSN, a driver’s license and a background check?

  • TryThinking1956

    Looks like I just stumbled on to a Ku Klux Klan website, huh? Can’t believe so many lying crackers are in one place. Pieces of racist, motherless shyt, all of you.

    • Buzzina Bethie

      “Cracker”? Who is the racist here?

    • Tim Kern

      What’s race got to do with anything? You mean, if you’re from a privileged race, you get a pass? Dude, THAT’s racist.

  • magic1114

    I’m against illegal immigration but this case merits a second look. If she was indeed unaware of her status as an illegal due to her parents bringing her here at an early age then I believe she’s due to at least a partial pension for her years of service. She earned it and she DID put herself between the public and the dirt-bags that inhabit that state. And don’t go off on me good people of Arizona; that’s just a generalization of the low-lifes that live in ANY city. Anyway, the state needs to review her service and act accordingly…

    • matt

      She has NO green card; all of the citations that she wrote to these so-called dirtbags need to be thrown out, they are invalid.

  • Liberty for All

    ONLY OBAMA and HOLDER CAN NOT HONOR LAWS THEY ARE BOTH ILLEGAL ALIENS .

  • ExposeThem

    How does she not know she is here illegally? Did she have a birth certificate? Was it a real one from her native country? Was it a fake U.S. birth certificate? Did her parents lie to her? If they did, they should be prosecuted.

    • Tim Kern

      If she hadn’t been a trooper and was found carrying a gun as an illegal, this would be a very different story.

  • Humanitarianism

    I don’t get it – she never applied for a passport? When I was 16 in AZ I had to produce my birth cert. to get a drivers license – don’t tell me she doesn’t have one. Even in school I believe you produce something to get your vaccinations and enter public school to say you are legal – green card or something

  • disqus_ZBc5CQd4k5

    So Much For Back Ground Checks !!!

    “Bart Graves, DPS spokesperson tells the News 4 Tucson Investigators “We believe the affidavit and information she gave us at the time. And, she was under the impression that she herself was an American citizen.”
    And the Social Security number she put down belong to?????

  • PESully

    While y’all crying about how sneaky she was or is. What about the human resource folks in the AZ state police who hired. Should they be fired,too? After all they should have vetted her.

    • Tim Kern

      YES, they should be fired. They’re taking pay for a job they’re not doing.

  • carl

    Sounds like Oboma.

  • sJames6621

    Note the pix of Cruz – he’s the new ranter like Joe McCarthy

    • Defiant

      Interestingly, if you’ll look up Joe McCarthy, you’ll find that he was correct about the vast majority of those he accused. There STILL is a TON of evidence vindicating him. MANY of the accused were subjects in CIA investigations and couldn’t be interfered with without endangering those counter-intel operations. Don’t believe me…look it up.

  • sJames6621

    note all the anti obama Bs on the right – this is a repub website. Why do repubs most of whom claim to support life want to kill off obama care, which eg would prevent only god knows how many people dieing from eg cancer because they couldnt afford to get tested early

    Repubs whose base is the biible belt south – want to destroy Obama

    bringing America into the 21 century re every other western democracy – guaranteed medical care for all at an afordable price

    I guess the Koch brothers 50-$60 billion net worth isnt enoough and they want more corporate tax breaks etc

    Repubs who made major cuts in food stamps – who let the economy collapse – Bush

    Why IMO – repubs get major contributions from the wall street banks – the wealthest people in America who also stole tarp money for bonuses for a job well done – the really 2nd great depression

    • gobnait

      Just so you know, the Koch brothers don’t even make the top ten in political donors. They are number 37 on the list. The top six groups donate largely to Democrats. http://www.open secrets.org.

    • Defiant

      LMAO! Sorry…I couldn’t read past the second sentence: “…Repubs most of whom claim to support life want to kill off obama care…”
      Which uses our money to pay for abortions. THAT’S why, brainiac! Not to mention we aren’t Socialists.

  • tjpride

    I feel a bit sorry for her, but blame her mother, not our laws. Nobody forced her mother to come here illegally. And for every illegal turned police officer, there are far more illegals turned criminal, so using this story as an emotional appeal for immigration “reform” is a bit pointless. Bottom line, the large majority of illegals are uneducated, would pay very little taxes even if legal, and over their lifetime will use far more taxpayer money than they contribute in taxes or reduced labor costs. Not to mention they compete with minorities for jobs. Illegals are a drain of hundreds of billions of dollars annually, and the Dems (and GOP sell-outs) actually want to make that worse by bringing in more of them.

    I’m fine with streamlining the immigration process, btw. But we MUST focus on educated immigrants, especially in areas such as nursing and manufacturing. And we should be reducing immigration from countries that are terrorist and crime hotbeds, and increasing for countries that are friendly to the US. And we should secure our borders, and start deporting the illegals who are statistically unlikely to contribute to the US over their lifetimes. In the case of this police officer, I’d put her in the “valuable” pool and fast-track her immigration, but she’s an exception.

  • bubba2001

    Does this mean that all the arrests she made will have to be thrown out in court?
    *ONE* Illegal Alien in this country is one too many!
    We simply cannot have any Illegal Aliens in this country anymore.

  • Jack Frost

    That’s nothing…. consider the illegal alien in the White House!

  • Jtoro

    So tell me Tea Partiers: Does this woman’s service and loyalty to the US count for anything here? Or does she get tossed to coyotes and back to mexico to wait 25 years for readmission? My take, our community is better with someone like her here contributing, and we gain nothing by being hard @$$es about this.

    • Defiant

      Nope. She’s out until she does it right. You Libs think you’re all so intellectual. You can’t expect an impartial system if you decide on a case-by-case basis to whom the law will apply. Get your heads out of your arses.

      • Jtoro

        So Mr Defiant, tell me this, you have a picture of the Gipper as your profile pic, but he allowed millions of criminals to be come non criminals by being arbitrary in applying immigration laws. Seems you have some conflicted priorities. How can you support a politicians who doesn’t support every law the US has, to utmost?

        Now maybe we can agree that the immigration system as it stands now, could be much more efficient. IE that it shouldn’t take lazy government union workers years and years to process visas and applications from people who we want to be here? I mean can we start with saying that there are alot of things we could do make the “legal way” not so burdensome?

        Because at the end of the day, I want more taxpaying, law abiding citizens in society not less. At the rate we are producing uneducated, welfare dependent, “birth right Americans” our country is going to fall apart very quickly. I would much rather have one illegal immigrant like her, than the millions of Americans who are trash. I dont care about where they were born.

  • john nice

    An illigal state trooper.” Oh i dont know i was illigal” start by providing a valid birth document honey.

  • DockyWocky

    This is an indication of just how serious a problem this illegal alien stuff has become. This should have been picked up back in the beginning and is a monument to liberal stupidity. As far as the cop goes, she’s earned her citizenship and ought to be allowed to stay and keep her job.
    Obama needs to be fired, and anyone else who keeps this illegal alien thing like a joke.

    She has earned U.S. Citizenship. After 13 years a trooper and a life of BELIEVING herself American with no reason not-to. How does she know her mother is telling the truth now? At any rate, she IS American, she has been effectually naturalized…more so than a few civics classes and a test will. Sending her to Mexico? If not, give her the job back with back-pay.

  • don3345

    I do not buy the statement that she did not know she was illegal. At some point in time her family had to have told her to lie or to be careful about certain inconsistencies in their paperwork or lack of papers, unless they had fraudulent papers, which would expire and need replacement, so she had to have known.
    She played the system, that’s all. She probably was soft on the hispanic community and allowed illegal aliens to get away with crimes by ignoring those laws as well. it was not Politically Correct for anyone to say so,is all.

  • dennis shelton

    Hilarious that this bigoted knuckle head infested state that is SOOOOO down on ILLEGAL ALIENS had an ILLEGAL ALIEN out running up and dpwn the highway ARRESTING U.S.CITIZENS!!!!!! Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha !!!! What a screw up for Arizona who now has to go back into all the court records and take another look at her reports which were filed by an ILLEGAL ALIEN! Ah ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ! NOW THAT”S FUNNY!

    • Defiant

      LOL! cut back on the thousand “ha’s” It just betrays you as a lunatic Liberal.

  • dennis shelton

    She’s been placing people under false arrest for 13 years posing as a CERTFIED PEACE OFFICER. NOW that the State of AZIRONI has found out that she is not born here her word in court is in jeopardy. Ha ! The ones that should pay for this are the ones that will pay for this .The goofball tax payers of Azironi who are the bigots that voted the government bigots into office in the first place! Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha . Keep wasting your money knotheads!

  • RustyDog

    Good “Lord” the deluge of racist ranting’s makes me want to run screaming to my gun safe, It was not her fault she was brought here, apprently she has done a good job while on duty & knows what the laws are, give her a break, I would be willing to bet that she does whatever it takes to abide by those laws. Most likely she has helped deport many illegals who did clearly come her without the correct paperwok.Without quality law enforcement people, we will rapidly decend into a chaotic society, not unlike the posts I am reading here.

    • Defiant

      LOL! Listen to yourself! She deported illegals so she, an illegal, should be allowed to stay? Isn’t that pretty unjust for the people she helped deport? The law must be applied in a uniform basis! Come on! Does anyone know how America is supposed to work anymore!? Do you understand equity in the eyes of the law?

  • rwspangler (LinkedIn)

    Actually sad. We are a nation who believes hard work will get you a life. She worked hard, let her fix it and continue. She obviously was an asset to the AZ community, why break it?

    • Defiant

      When you begin to enforce the law on a selective basis, it becomes a tool, or even a weapon, of persecution. The law is the law. Break the law, suffer the penalty.

      • rwspangler (LinkedIn)

        I’m not saying she shouldn’t have to apply. To break the law you must have intent which she did not have. She has shown proper responsibility and should be assisted to regain her post to protect and serve the country as she and her brother have demonstrated thus far.

        Further, this shows a positive side of latinos, or is that the real issue here?

  • Defiant

    She did the right thing.

  • mercantilist

    Enforcement would have stopped the immigration crime, But the blame is on the parents.
