I think you mean green card not citizenship. You are not a citizen yourself, you are a LPR (Legal Permanent Resident). Yes you can file an I-130 for your mother and wait until the petition is approved and then again wait until the visa becomes available. But she is going to have to go back to her country of origin in order to process her paperwork unless she has protection under section 245i of the Immigration & Nationality Act (INA). Good luck!
