Response: You need to request the document through Freedom of Information Act ("FOIA"). You need to complete FOIA request form and specifically state on the form exactly what you are looking for. You would receive acknowledgment of your request in the mail along with information regarding the potential cost of the request and the
time it would take to provide the information to you. Click on the link below to download the form:

Response:
You need ask for a copy of her naturalization papers. The FOIA form is self-explanatory. You need to specifically describe the information that you are looking for. Here is the link once more to the FOIA form:
