By Elliot Spagat and Sophia Tareen   SAN DIEGO (AP)—The head of the agency handling citizenship and visa applications was surprised when he faced blowback for cutting a reference to the U.S. being a “nation of immigrants” in its mission statement.

10/30/2020 6:15:48 PM

Dear Editor, The OPSMA does not often weigh in on political candidates, but in this case feels compelled to make an exception regarding Aaron Starr. In a recent mailer, Starr’s lead points included “Fund Public Safety...Aaron believes we should fund law enforcement…” The OPSMA takes exception to Mr. Starr self-portrayal as a supporter of public safety. His actions and words have told us otherwise. In a public forum last month, we caught Mr. Starr presenting gravely misleading per capita public safety cost comparisons between Oxnard and other cities in Ventura...
