The process of Naturalization for foreigners to become an American citizen can be a difficult one. One local resident spent four years working through the requirements.“I can get a U.S. passport, vote in a federal election, serve on a jury and pay taxes,” Elbia Slatton. “Not everyone can become a member of another country, but my journey to become an American has been a truly gratifying experience.”Slatton was born and raised with her three siblings in a small town located two hours away from the border of Eagle Pass, Texas.
