American Finally Receives Proof of Being...American

"It took nearly 15 years, numerous appeals to lawmakers and a battalion of guardian angel lawyers, but Cerrina Foster finally has a country to call home — and the paperwork to prove it.  Friday, the 14-year-old stood in a federal office, raised her hand along with 12 other people and pledged her loyalty to America.  Lots of immigrants do this every year to become naturalized citizens, but Cerrina’s case is different: She’s always been an American citizen; but she never had a birth certificate." - Barbara LaBoe, Longview Daily News, May 23, 2014.
