Last year, Queens resident Augusto Noguera was appointed to an administrative role in Paraguay's consulate in NY, apparently "as payback for supporting [its President Fernando] Lugo and other candidates in last year’s elections," according to the NY Times. Only, it turned out that Noguera was an illegal immigrant—he's currently "locked in an immigration detention center in Arizona," caught last month at the border carrying someone else's passport. The publisher of newspaper El Mirador Paraguayo laments, "We want qualified people with sensitivity to the needs of Paraguayans abroad, not political appointments. It’s more than embarrassing. We’re sad. Coming from one of the most corrupt countries in the world, we’ve lost the capacity to be embarrassed."
