For reals?

Nice SNAFU here by the State Department. This woman has spent her life thinking she was an American citizen.
A State Department spokeswoman, Adriana Gallegos, declined to discuss Boneva's situation, citing confidentiality laws. She sought to clarify the overall matter in an e-mailed comment, saying, "We don't revoke citizenship; we revoke documents." But she declined to elaborate on what that means for Boneva.
What the heck is that supposed to mean? You don't revoke citizenship, just documents. Sheesh.

My mom deals with ICE for work on a daily basis and in her opinion the only thing dumber than their rules are their employees.

Hilarious. Sad commentary, but hysterical.
