    She lied on an affidavit when she applied; it`s a felony in most states. Charges should be filed. As for deportation? I`m not sure without knowing all of the circumstances, but I would lean to deportation; as she is now a known felon.

    Additionally, the person/s responsible for her background check should also be held accountable; possibly reprimanded.

    If she`s so interested in enforcing laws why would she do something ILLEGAL!

    I think this case demonstrates the non black & white nature alien status can be. She was brought here as a baby and may have believed she was a citizen herself. All indicators point toward an exemplary officer in service. Is it really a felony? She personally didn`t make the decision to come here illegally.

    Agreed. And she has more than proved her value to the community. It`s not like she is sponging.

    From the reports I`ve seen she`s always thought she was a citizen and has an excellent record, so I don`t see a need for charges.

    She did the honorable thing in resigning. But if the facts hold up, and has proven to be an asset, I don`t see why she can`t be given an expidited chance at citizenship and get her job back.

    This is the exception the proves the rule, though. I`m all for mass deportation of illegals who knowingly break the law.

    I don`t believe she thought she was a citizen. She knew her status. Even if brought here young her parents would have taught her how to "cover up".

    If I lied on my job application {Are you legally allowed to work in this country check yes} then I would be fires. Why should illegals get a free pass just because they successfully broke the law for a long time?

    Her parents knew what they were doing. They knew their kids were illegal and they brought them up anyway in a land they can`t have legal status. Blame them, not the law abiding people.

    dognose82, "Additionally, the person/s responsible for her background check should also be held accountable; possibly reprimanded."
    Blame Affirmative Action. If their quota of hispanic or black women is low, they tend to not look so closely at the candidates to make sure they pass.

    lol so the entirety of your post revolves around complete speculation as to what she knew in direct contradiction with the facts as they are presented?
    Thanks for that insight, champ
    Murrica! Screw immigrants!

    ReBoot, she had to prove identity, get a drivers license, go through the education system. All of that would require documentation. Where`d she get all that? Someone had to make that poo up. Seems likely she knew, she got caught, we`re done.

    lol way to repeat yourself. Gerry. So you know all the facts of her situation?
    Yeah, thought not. But keep pretending to have insight. It`s a good laugh.

    If her parents faked a birth certificate and told she was born in the US then she might well have legitimately believed that she was a US citizen. Once a birth certificate is accepted then other documentation follows.

    Gerry, best way to get a kid to `cover up` is not to let them know there is anything to cover up. At no point did I ever tell my daughter that since she was 18 months old we have been in the witness protection program. That would have been silly since kids can`t keep secrets. Learned that the hard way.

    It seems rather unlikely that, if she knew she had no legal staus, she would choose law enforcement as a career. The article refers to a `confrontation` with her mother.

    Her brother is serving with the US military. Does that require citizenship? He drew attention to her while applying for a passport, which does suggest to me that he thought she was a US citizen.

    Seems the law can be flexible and take delusional factors into account if the perp is a rich 16 year old white kid who killed four people. Hey, we all did stupid things, right? Let`s not be too harsh. He blieved he was immune to consequences and so should not face consequences.

    But a Hispanic woman with an exemplary 13 year career in law enforcement? Gotcha, bitch. Feel the Law.

    How could you possibly imagine that I would have the faintest idea of what you are talking about or how it would be relevant.

    Hang on, was one of those OJ Simpson. I think I got that. Can I have a biscuit?

    It`s easy to blame "mean old men" like me, but the villain here is the parents who set their children up for this kind of failure. All that work wasted. It IS her parents who initiated this situation. Not ICE, not State Government.

    But, given her record I would not mind seeing her on a fast track to get legal status.

    lol ReBoot - what you said is funny coming from someone in a country that would throw her out faster than we would. Hell at least we allow anchor babies, but Canada still deports them even if they`re born there, unless at least 1 parent is an Canadian.

    Perhaps you should be more of an agent for change up there. Loosen the rules up a bit, like in the US. Nah, if you did there`d be a flood of those damn Americans swarming up there steeling your jobs. Can`t have that.

    Given her record, I would say knock the penalty down to a misdemeanor and give her the citizenship test, and all that guff.
    Once successfully passed, reinstate her career.
