A detective for the Arizona state police resigned this week after it was revealed she isn't a U.S. citizen and had — perhaps unknowingly — misrepresented where she was born on application documents, officials said Wednesday.

Former detective Carmen Figueroa — who worked 13 years for the Arizona Department of Public Safety and once served as the state police force’s spokeswoman — had stated in a required written affidavit when hired that she is a U.S. citizen. She later told investigators her family told her she was born in the Unites States.

Instead, it turned out that she was born in Sinaloa, Mexico, and came to the U.S. as a young child and was living in the country illegally, NBC station KVOA in Tucson, the first to make the revelation, reported.

Figueroa may have used a fake or forged birth certificate, the station reported, but officials said that she was likely told that she was born in this country by her mother.

"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," Department of Public Safety spokesman Bart Graves told KVOA.

hopefully no charges will be pressed, she becomes a citizen and is able to get her job back.

How is that even possible? Isn't there records you are supposed to have, birth certificates, birth registrations, personal ID numbers and so on?

In Denmark, each citizen has a unique number we receive at birth to identify us throughout our entire life.

Sure, we have our social security #s.  With the rate of identity theft in this country I wouldn't doubt that this was forged or stolen as well.  :/
