2009 Illinois – Official Finding – Margarita Del Pilar Fitzpatrick

Margarita Del Pilar Fitzpatrick is a native and citizen of Peru who became a non-citizen permanent resident in 2004. When she applied for a driver’s license, Fitzpatrick also filled out a “Motor Voter” registration form on which she falsely claimed to be a U.S. citizen. She subsequently voted in the 2006 federal election. In 2007, while applying for naturalization, Fitzpatrick acknowledged to immigration officials that she had registered and voted. Fitzpatrick’s application was denied and she was ordered removed from the country because of this violation.
