Title: Woman stuck in Mexico after renouncing US citizenship
Article: Even though Brenda Vazquez was born in Texas, she told Customs and Border Protection officers at the U.S.-Mexico border in February that she wasn't a United States citizen. Almost four months later, Vazquez is trying desperately to return to Texas, claiming that she was forced to sign a false statement denying her citizenship. Vazquez's troubles began when a mistake on her birth certificate provoked additional questioning at the border. After "seven hours of intimidation," she swore she was born in Mexico, and her driver's license and birth certificate were confiscated. Vazquez's attorney says her situation isn't unique and warns Americans abroad to never "sign anything stating that they are not a citizen." http://now.msn.com/now/0604-woman-citizenship-lie.aspx
I am surprised by this. I wonder what the mistake was. Also the attorney saying that her situation is not unique. Kinda freaks me out. I want to go to Africa in two years.
