My personal opinion is anyone wanting to become a US Citizen and reap the benefits of being an American Citizen should take tests to enhance their knowledge of America, and finally take an Oath of Allegance before being accepted, just as with the Ellis Island era.

Unfortunately, that ship has sailed!

Hmm, sounds like that's exactly what she did.

I don't care who she's related to. She's here illegally and using public assistance without paying into it. Arrest her and kick her the hell out. If she wants to immigrate here she can do it the right way like every body else.

The way things are going in this nation; said 'sunken ship' (Rule of Law, revision of our immigration laws to favor educated and/or English speaking legal immigrants of any race/ethnicity, etc.) may wind up being replaced by an updated model.
