I was Adopted by Americans, I am an American

Tara Ammons Cohen, a Washington state resident, is set to be deported back to Mexico due to an investigation into her citizenship. Cohen was adopted by US citizen parents when she was a baby and believes she is an American citizen. Legally, Cohen is not an American citizen because when she was adopted from Mexico at 4 months old; her adoptive parents never secured her citizenship. Cohen is very scared at the possibility of being deported to Mexico, as she doesn’t speak any Spanish and Mexico is a very unfamiliar place to her. Being deported would also mean that Cohen would leave her husband and three children behind in the US. The investigation into her citizenship began after she pleaded guilty and served time for drug trafficking. Cohen plans to keep fighting her deportation even it means going all the way to the Supreme Court.
