Illinois Woman Told She Is No Longer A Us Citizen

Why does she has to pay for the mistake of a US embassy employee? There are so many illegal aliens committing all sort of crimes and allowed to stay yet they go after this woman? Shame!

Angela Boneva is living in limbo.

For years she, and the you.S. Government, thought the Bulgarian-born 34-year-old was an American citizen. But, when she went to renew her passport in 2003, the State Department reportedly told her something terribly different.

Boneva's father was born in Indiana, and the consulate in Bulgaria gave her you.S. Citizenship while she was growing up in the country in 1981. She was able to visit relatives in Chicago and eventually move to the area in 1997, the Chicago Tribune reported.

Then in 2003, the married mother of a now 7-year-old you.S.-born boy received a letter from the you.S. State Department saying there was a mistake and she wasn't an American citizen, according to the Tribune.

"I thought it was some kind of joke," she told the Tribune. "I grew up believing I'm an American, and now they want to take that away? This is like a bad dream."

The State Department said in the letter that an employee at the consulate broke a rule that required her father to have lived in the you.S. For 10 years before she was born,
the Tribune reported. Her father had only lived in the you.S. For six years before moving to Bulgaria.

The letter also pointed out that that requirement changed in 1986 to five years, meaning that someone in the Boneva's position today would be eligible for you.S. Citizenship, but she isn't.

Another letter sent later that year then told her "it does not appear" she qualifies to be a you.S. Citizen anymore,
the Tribune reported...
