Arizona detective resigns over resident status
This undated photo provided by the Arizona Department of Public Safety shows Arizona's state police agency detective Carmen Figueroa. Figueroa recently resigned from her post following the discovery that she was in the United States illegally after being brought from Mexico at a young age, the agency said Wednesday, Dec. 11, 2013. Figueroa, apparently was told by her family that she was born in the United States, though she was actually born in Sinoloa, Mexico, Department of Public Safety spokesman Bart Graves said. Figueroa worked for DPS in southern Arizona and was with the department for 10 years. (AP Photo/Arizona Department of Public Safety)
