From the article:

Quote:
Meyer, whose story was first reported in the Victorville Daily Press, applied to become a naturalized citizen and continued with her life: raising her children and attending two local colleges to earn degrees toward her goal of working in the justice system as a forensic nurse.
I'm still not following why she didn't know she wasn't a citizen.

No one forced her to plead guilty. By pleading guilty under the law she's admitting to committing the crime. Throw her out...

This is The United States of America and we have laws. Love and respect our Country. It is an honor and a privlidge to live here. We are soooo lucky to be here. By the way my last immigrant relative came here 100 years ago and the others over 100 years. I am so sad to see what is happening here.

How did she get a social security number? When I was 16 I went to get my social security card and had to bring my birth certificate and proof that my parents were/are American citizens. How did she get past that?

How is she legal Yeah? I mean, she wasn't born here. Her parents were not citizens. Did they become citizens, and then that makes her a citizen?
