Marisol Valles Garcia earned headlines for her bravery when, at just 20 years old, she was the only applicant to be police chief in a violent, Mexican border town. Now she is in headlines again, as she has apparently fled across the border to the United States and claimed asylum. The Mexican town, Praxedis G Guerrero fired Garcia Monday for being absent without leave. U.S. Customs confirms she is in Texas. "She will have the opportunity to present the facts of her case before an impartial immigration judge," an official tells Reuters.
