Court: Applicants wrongly denied US citizenship

Tuesday, 24 September 2013 11:13 Published in National News

BROWNSVILLE, Texas (AP) - A federal appeals court has ruled that immigration officials wrongly denied U.S. citizenship to a man who spent more than two decades trying to prove he was an American.

The case revealed a 1978 legal error that has resulted in an untold number of people being turned down for citizenship they were entitled to receive.

Sigifredo Saldana Iracheta was born to an unmarried American father and a Mexican mother in 1964 just south of the Texas border. He was deported at least four times. At one point, he was detained for nearly two years as he sought permission to join his family in the U.S.

For decades, the government has cited Article 314 of the Mexican Constitution, which supposedly deals with out-of-wedlock births. But the constitution has no such article.

Calls for action surround Navy sexual assault case

Tuesday, 24 September 2013 11:12 Published in National News

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) - The case of three former U.S. Naval Academy football players accused of sexually assaulting a female midshipman at a crowded off-campus house is bringing fresh criticism and calls for greater accountability on academy leaders.

As the entire military faces scrutiny about how sexual assault cases are handled, some are focusing on the training ground for future military leaders as a natural starting point for addressing problem.

Sen. Barbara Mikulski, D-Md., wants to create a commission, partly to examine how well superintendents are addressing sexual assault.

The academy, meanwhile, is putting a greater emphasis on training to prevent sexual assault. It also has sent letters to people who open their homes to midshipmen to help the school stop students from renting or leasing off-campus homes.

Man accused of plot to shoot up Salt Lake mall

Tuesday, 24 September 2013 11:11 Published in National News

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - A 42-year-old Salt Lake City man faces a terrorism threat charge after police say he plotted a mass shooting at the City Creek Center mall.

Jail records show Jack Harry Stiles was booked into the Salt Lake County jail on Monday and remains there on $1 million bail. It's not clear whether he has an attorney.

West Valley City police say they were tipped off to the plans by a Salt Lake County hospital crisis worker, who said Stiles described detailed plans to "kill as many people as possible" on Sept. 25, which is the anniversary of his mother's death.

Police say Stiles later told them he wanted to gun down people at the mall during lunch before shooting up a movie theater and wiring a bomb underneath a public bus
