Citizenship at Risk: New Obstacles to Naturalization. Report 2.
United States Catholic Conference, Washington, DC. Catholic Legal Immigration Network, Inc.
This report focuses on "at risk" immigrants in the United States. This second report in the series focuses on obstacles to immigration. This series does not seek to advance specific policies or reforms. It intends merely to relate the stories of newcomers in the confidence that they will speak powerfully for themselves. This report outlines the myriad of ways in which the naturalization process is threatened, and urges a more clear-headed and fair approach to protecting and administering immigration laws. The following topics are addressed in this report: denaturalization; the backlog; customer service; fee increases and the availability of fee waivers; elderly and disabled applicants; good moral character; the naturalization test; and denials. A glossary of terms is appended. (Adjunct ERIC Clearinghouse for ESL Literacy Education) (KFT)
