A 101-year-old Dominican woman became one of the newest United States citizens on Tuesday.
Braulia Fabian, 101, took the oath of allegiance to the United States at a homebound naturalization service in New York City. Fabian, who is from the Dominican Republic, became a permanent U.S. resident in 1990.
She lives with a son in the Bronx and has 12 grandchildren, 28 great-grandchildren and 11 great-great-grandchildren. Her 102nd birthday is next Wednesday.
