That's just ridiculous. That man should be granted citizenship and given his job back.

Wow. If he did a good job let him go back to work!! At least he was working and doing good!

Wonder who conducted his background check!

This is simply incredible. Heads should roll inside Ankorage PD, and the feds (since APD is incompetent) should conduct a thorough investigation of what he might have been doing there--if not simply an illegal alien getting a good job. Something smells very fishy!

I bet he had a Hawaiian birth certificate too! The days of honesty are gone. Thank the politicians for it. Hey APD, my grandmother needs a job.

The fact that he lied is enough to doubt his credibility. End result - can anything he says or does ever be trusted again.
