Maybe someone ought to plug in the computers.

This is out and out incompetence.

Another day -- or is that 4.5 months -- in hillbilly America. I hope she sues. Bunch of damned bigots.

It's not incompetence. This was deliberate.

Committed the heinous crime of being alive in Arizona while brown. It will be a good day when all those old white bigots there are finally dead and Hispanics make up the majority.

I hope she sues the county to within an inch of their lives.

I agree. I would need indisputable proof of the incompetence to believe that.

Was this incompetence or malice? ... Trick question. It was both!

You have to be a drooling f***ing moron to be so malicious to a random innocent citizen. In other words, Arpaio and co.

Oh, and here's more from the link:

By this time, ICE had lifted its immigration hold on Torres, a move that helped force [Deputy County Attorney] Strange's hand.

How Oberly, a former ICE agent notorious among certain local immigration attorneys, came to be involved in Torres' case is a twisted plot that would give Franz Kafka a migraine.

Even the feds in charge of this stuff didn't bother to check Vital Records where her birth certificate was easily available to them. I expected this kind of mental laziness from Maricopa officials, but the ICE as well?! Whisky Tango F***tards!

Locking up a citizen is bad bad juju. I don't what will happen here but the immigration people I used to know spoke about such things with great reverence. There will be some discipline and a false arrest lawsuit, methinks

It is racism.

She has the exact same birthday I do.

I'm not surprised this stuff goes on. I am using somewhat similar events for a storyline in an immigration centered novel I am writing which takes place in Arizona.

However, in my story the U.S. citizen is shot and killed by a minuteman patroller after being mistaken for an illegal. He (The U.S. citizen) is near the border because he is looking for his daughter, who has allegedly been taken by drug smugglers.

I hope she sues too. This is disgraceful.
