REDWOOD SHORES, Calif–Sharon Arlanza Yost is suing the US government for 2 million dollars for negligence, false imprisonment, and causing emotional distress after she was detained for several months in 2010 and 2011, and threatened with deportation because she was accused of being undocumented.

Court records show that Yost is claiming that US immigration officials made a mistake when she was arrested on May 14, 2010 on what her legal counself call a “purported, but baseless belief” that she was undocumented and subject to deportation.

Courthouse News reported that Yost pleaded guilty to possession of methamphetamine when she was arrested in 2010.

When Yost produced a certificate of US citizenship, the government alleged that the document was fraudulently obtained, but records show that Yost came to US as a child and granted full US Citizenship when her mother Candelaria Arlanza married US Navyman Richard Allen Yost.

Yost’s complaint was filed in October and the government’s answer is due by December.

    Procedures usually takes quite awhile. Along with having the right and proper documents.

    We do things to our ownself. Whatever I did in the past. I did to myself. And I don’t blame others for my own mistakes. I’ve done my crime and did my time. You chose to do drugs not I forcing it down your throat! You would travel several hours just to get your high. So please don’t blame me. With your surgery its from your work. I was not in the picture when it happened. I did my time because you guys said I did all those to you guys. Its okay. Because God knows it was your choice not mine. So good luck with all you do. I don’t want part of it. Baka ako nanaman ituro nyo . Someone has to pay right. To clear yourself from your family you have to blame somebody. I’ve already took the blame for you and did time for it. San naman this time you take responsibility for your own action.
    God bless you and your family. Stop lying to them and yourself!.

    She’s done a lot of things to people and used my friend for money and a place to stay, last I heard she was a prostitute. I guess now she’s Looking for a easy payday and the lime light. You forgave yourself but yet you did not think twice on apologizing to the people who were kind enough to help you instead you left them all broken. Just because your typing and throwing god in your sentences does not change who you are, we know your hiding and trying hard not to look bad in front of all the people who will read or see your article, we know who you are and frankly your a known crook who does not deserve a reward. If you somehow do get paid our government is not doing their job. They had every right to keep you in jail. Remember Karma is a bitch.

      I’m sorry for all of those who’s hating. I’m not trying to clean myself from anything. And if saying things about me that is not even true. Will make you feel better then that’s on you. Prostitute? WOW! #9 of the Ten commandment of the Holy Bible. “Thou shalt not make any false witness against thy neighbor” Basically it clearly says don’t talk bad about othersy. You’re absolutely right karma will get you back 10x worst or 10x good. I know who I am and what I’ve done wrong. I know who’ve helped me and those who’ve stabbed my back. My karma is good because I know I’ve done good to people and GOD knows who I’m from head to toe. GOD never left my side that is why I am still standing today. He is my reason to say and will continue to say, “My life is worth saving”. So if anyone else wants to say bad things about me. Sky is the limit. Just know that all your negative words will not hurt me because with GOD I know where I stand.
