Here's a legal situation that's got me headscratching.

The Anchorage cop who wound up being an illegal alien from Mexico is pleading guilty to Federal Fraud charges for fraudulently using a real US Citizens name and SSN.

Now it turns out that that real US Citizen, formerly a citizen of Guadalajara, Mexico, was neighbors in Guadalajara with the illegal alien cops Mexican wife, back before she married the illegal alien cop. The Mexican female became a US citizen after marrying the illegal alien cop, and used his phony US Citizenship as the avenue to acquire her US Citizenship. And they have a kid born in the States.

So I don't think the illegal alien cop qualifies as a US Citizen, but is his wife still a legal US Citizen, having used him as her path to citizenship, or does her US Citizenship only become questionable once investigation begins into whether she was aware of or involved in helping pull off the scam in the first place?

And if their child is a US citizen, having been born in the US, does that allow the parents to attempt to claim US Citizenship all over again through their anchor baby?

Beats me.

Anyhow, here's the ADN link.


Sara, small world department-- my Dad's family is Welsh Quaker that stayed in SE PA (St Davids) that stayed in place until the 1960s. My Mom's family were PA Dutch from SE PA (Shamokin) who may or may not be Huegenots via Germany after the Edict of Nantes, Mom is currently tracking original documents so who knows?

And thanks for the book report, daddy. I should read up on those conquerors sometime.

Out late last night.  Or should I say until early this morning. Just now got the email and here you go -- daddy's bear. 


Obama said that there was no one more Irish than he is. Groan.

But it's true!

I was making no comment on the post's moral content only noting that, based on the avatar and previous posts with the same avatar, which were similar crude sock puppetry of cleo's various aliases, that cleo did not make the comment he was alleged to.


Reading everybody's genealogy stories from last night...

My "thrill of the chase" story goes like this. When we lived in South Carolina, our church hired a music director, from Arkansas, who became a good friend. (He's WonderGirl's godfather.) One time we got to be talking, and figured out that his ancestors and mine were from the English Catholic recusants who immigrated to Maryland in the 1600s and then to Kentucky in the 1780s and 90s. In 1855 Know Nothings lynched over 120 Catholics in Louisville, and he was descended from a bunch of families that moved to Arkansas in reaction.

A few years later I found my grandmother's genealogy notes, and looked up the 1850 census, and discovered that our friend's gr-gr-gr-gr-gr-grandparents were next-door neighbors to my gr-gr-gr-gr-gr-grandparents in Daviess County, Kentucky in 1850!
