Hello my name is ***** ***** I am delighted to answer your questions today. I have 35 years experience as an immigration lawyer.
In recent years the law changed and requires US Citizens returning from Canada to have a US passport. She cannot use a Canadian passport to return.
She will need to make an appointment with the US Citizens Services at the nearest US consulate and file a passport application there in order to return.
If she is in possession of a valid unexpired US passport, she has no problem returning.
If you tThiell me where her closest US consulate is in Canada I will provide you a link to how she can apply for an expedited passport if it is an emergency for her to come back and she is lacking a US passport.
This is not the old days of easy border crossing. Terrorism has changed that. In addition, the law requires all US citizens to depart and enter the US using a US passport. Since she didn't go through any inspection except on the Canadian side she was able to use her Canadian passport to enter Canada. But to come back she needs a US passport.
You will need to send her naturalization certificate to her in Canada for her to get her US passport.
