BOISE, Idaho - A Romanian national who had been living in Idaho has lost her citizenship over immigration fraud.
The U.S. Attorney's Office says 36-year-old Simona Rus was sentenced yesterday to two years of probation for unlawful procurement of U.S. citizenship based on a fraudulent marriage she entered in 2003. U.S. District Judge Edward Lodge revoked her citizenship and canceled her certificate of naturalization.
Rus pleaded guilty in November.
Rus was among a group of eight Romanians facing deportation for using fraudulent marriages to gain citizenship. She owned a cleaning business in Ketchum.
