They found out the day she did it. She was questioned further, still insisted that she was an American citizen, and when it was found out that she wasn't, she was jailed and fined. This is a perfectly reasonable action on the part of the border guards and immigration officials, I think.
Therefore, her marriage to an American citizen, and all her laudatory volunteer work, occurred after she was convicted of an immigration offense and ordered to leave.
Most people with a criminal redord would have a hard time getting citizenship in America.
