Rosario Marin

American Secretary of the Treasury Rosario Marin

Rosario Marin was the 41st Treasurer of the United States from August 16, 2001 to June 30, 2003, serving under President George W. Bush. She is the first person to assume the post since William Clark who was not born a United States citizen. She is the only U.S. Treasurer ever born outside U.S. borders or territory that would eventually become part of the country and is, therefore, often referred to as the only foreign-born Treasurer of the United States.

GOP Faces Uphill Climb With Latino Voters In Key Swing State Of Colorado
Huffington Post - over 2 years
BOULDER, Colo. -- Minutes before presidential candidates took the stage at Wednesday's Republican primary debate, an evangelical pastor stepped to a microphone and told of being brought into the U.S. illegally by her mother, and how she didn’t deserve to be vilified by politicians who neither understand nor care for her struggle for a better life. “My mom and I were taken to a deportation facility,"said the Rev. Vanessa Guzman, also a real estate agent from Lakewood, a nearby Denver suburb. "For a week I stayed there, with enough clothes that could fill a trash bag. And we were sent back to Mexico. But my mom es una luchadora. And she went back to the United States and she knew that this is the place she called home.”  Guzman, now pursuing a masters of divinity degree at Denver Seminary, explained that she had a higher calling. “This is where God lands," Guzman told The Huffington Post following her speech. "God is with the people that are being oppressed. Right now, these ...

National Council of La Raza : Valuing the Home Care Workforce
Huffington Post - over 4 years
By Scott Einbinder, Bend the Arc: a Jewish Partnership for Justice, and Delia de la Vara, Vice President, California Region, NCLR In a recent Los Angeles Times article, Chris Megerian mis-characterizes the Obama administration's proposal to extend basic federal labor protections to home care aides as contrary to the needs of people with disabilities. In California, nearly a half-million workers provide services and supports to elders and people with disabilities through the In Home Supportive Services (IHSS) program. Many more provide support to families who pay privately for assistance for their parents and grandparents who can no longer manage on their own. These home care workers are part of a national workforce that, according to the national nonprofit PHI, numbers at least 2.5 million, and is the fastest-growing workforce in the country. By 2020, this workforce is expected to grow to 4 million workers, larger than the number of teachers educating youth in grades K-...

Communist rebels kill 4 soldiers in Philippines
Fox News - over 5 years
Suspected communist guerrillas have killed four unarmed, off-duty soldiers in the southern Philippines in the latest flare-up of the 43-year insurgency, military officials said Monday. At least 10 suspected New People's Army guerrillas opened fire with M16 rifles on the soldiers in the rural outskirts of Davao city late Sunday afternoon, initially killing three soldiers, regional military spokeswoman Maj. Rosa Maria Cristina Manuel said. The rebels dragged another soldier to a rice field and fatally shot him. Troops found his body on Monday, she said. "Army soldiers were deployed to rescue him because we thought they would just hold him. But they apparently executed him in the field," Manuel told The Associated Press by telephone. The soldiers were traveling on motorcycles on the way back to camp from a public market when they were attacked, she said. The attack was staged in Davao city's Paquibato distric...
