A Texas judge was recently placed on unpaid leave after it was discovered she was not a US citizen.
Judge Young Min Burkett has 90 days to become a citizen.
She may keep her job after lying about her citizenship for years.
Her rulings will stand.
You can’t make this stuff up.
Waco Trib reported:
Officials in South Texas have placed a municipal court judge on unpaid leave after it was discovered she’s not a U.S. citizen.
Corpus Christi Mayor Pro-Tem Lucy Rubio told the Corpus Christi Caller-Times that Judge Young Min Burkett was placed on leave for 90 days with the intention that will be enough time for her to obtain citizenship.
Rubio says the city never asked during the qualification process to become a municipal judge whether Burkett was a citizen, and says Burkett never tried to deceive or misrepresent her background.
