A Filipino woman faked her own death and stole her sister’s identity just to apply for a passport. Unfortunately, she is now about to lose her U.S. citizenship. Identity theft is a serious crime.      Ads  Sponsored Links  A 43-year-old Emilita Arindela, of Mount Desert Island, was sentenced to 10 days in jail for making a false statement on her passport application in federal court in Maine. It’s unclear if she will be stripped off of her American citizenship by federal authorities but it is more likely to happen.  Prosecutors say Arindela was already married when she married an American man in 2000. She moved to the U.S. in 2002 and later became a naturalized citizen, using her sister’s name. Arindela left her second husband and married another man in 2007.  Arindela’s lawyer says his client escaped an abusive marriage in the Philippines and has been a obedience to the US laws.

In spite of the rising prices of commodities and services and others due to the high inflation rate, many Filipinos believe that the country is on the right track. Just recently, the new minimum fare is being set to P10 while the minimum wage remains stuck. That is what the latest SWS survey indicates.      Ads      Sponsored Links   The latest survey shows that from 70% in the second quarter of this year, the statistics went up to 75%.  On the other hand, only 22% believed the Philippines is in the wrong path while 3% of the 1,500 respondents did not give an answer during the conducted survey.  Malacañang welcomes this result as a vindication that the administration is doing their job the keep the country on track.  “PRRD emphasized in numerous occasions that as government workers, we are here to serve the people. Our objective as public servants is thus being able to perform our respective duties well,” Presidential spokesperson Salvador Panelo said.  “Therefore, we treat the results of this recent survey not as an accolade but as an inspiration for our men and women in the government as they persist in carrying on with their roles in the service,” Panelo added.  According to the presidential spokesperson, the strong public appreciation would further engage the Filipino people in supporting the Duterte administration in building “a nation where all Filipinos can experience comfortable and decent lives under a trustworthy government.” Filed under the category of commodities and services, high inflation rate, Filipinos, minimum fare, minimum wage, SWS survey
