Walter and Jean Clancy adopted Christopher in 1982 from Mexico.
Jean Clancy claims she took Christopher to the INS office in 1986 to fill out the paperwork making him a U.S. citizen. While completing the form, she says, a supervisor told them that Christopher was already a citizen.
Jean Clancy says the paperwork she had already filled out was kept at the office. The INS says it has no evidence of the visit.
In 2000 Christopher was convicted on three burglary charges and sentenced to five years.
The INS decided Christopher Clancy is not a U.S. citizen. So after he did his time, he was transferred to a federal detention center to await deportation.
