U.S. Sen. Mazie Hirono was sworn in as Hawaii’s junior senator on Jan. 3, 2013
(Mar. 24, 2016) — The junior U.S. Senator from the state of Hawaii, Mazie Hirono, is a naturalized citizen, according to her official biography.
Hirono, who ran against former Hawaii Governor Linda Lingle for the seat in 2012, makes no secret of the fact that she was “an immigrant” naturalized as a U.S. citizen in 1959, which coincided with the admission of Hawaii to the union as its 50th state.
Hirono was born on November 3, 1947 in Fukushima, Japan to a Japanese father and US-citizen mother who apparently did not lose her US citizenship.
The Senator’s life story states that her mother, Laura, left an abusive, alcoholic husband in Japan to return to her native land with her two young children.  Mazie was seven years oldat the time.
Hirono attended the University of Hawaii and eventually Georgetown University Law School.  After working as an attorney in the office of the Hawaii Attorney General, Ms. Hirono decided to enter public service and successfully ran for the Hawaii House of Representatives, serving seven consecutive terms.  She also served as Hawaii’s lieutenant governor from 1994 to 2002 under Gov. Ben Cayatano.
On November 6, 2012, the Wall Street Journal’s “Japan” section reported that Hirono, who hadserved in the U.S. House of Representatives from January 3, 2007 to January 3, 2013 from Hawaii’s Second District, had won the U.S. Senate seat vacated by Sen. Daniel Akaka, who retired.
