    Arrest of ex-governor is an embarrassment

    I have never been embarrassed to be a U.S. citizen, but the incident that occurred in Arizona to that state’s 96-year-old former governor, Raul Castro, by our U.S. Border Patrol is a major embarrassment. We Americans have many faults, but the mistreatment of former Gov. Castro goes beyond a fault.

    He wasn't arrested. He was detained for a vehicle inspection and let go.
