Woman obtains US citizenship at the age of 106

Most California residents have goals in life they hope to achieve. As many people get older, they may begin to think that they will miss out on reaching those goals. However, even people of older ages can work toward making their dreams come true, especially if those dreams involve obtaining citizenship in the United States.

It was recently reported that a 106-year-old woman became a U.S. citizen on election day. The woman was born in El Salvador and eventually moved to the United States. She became a permanent resident after she received sponsorship from one of her sons. She stated that both she and her husband had wanted to become citizens, but sadly, he died before he was able to reach that goal.

The woman stated that she took the citizenship oath both for herself and her husband. She also encouraged others to pursue this dream even if they are older because she was able to become a citizen at her age. The report also noted that despite her advanced age, the woman is not the oldest person to become a naturalized citizen. In 1997, a 117-year-old immigrant was naturalized.

Pursuing citizenship is a long and difficult journey. However, as this woman's case shows, it can be achieved. If individuals living in California would like to take the necessary steps to further their paths to naturalization, they may want to enlist professional help. Immigration attorneys can provide reliable information to interested parties and also ensure that those parties take the steps necessary to reach their end goals.
