Resolving Immigration Problems In An Honest & Responsible Manner

Citizenship Archives

What are residence and presence requirements for naturalization?

Immigrants in San Diego who are seeking citizenship in the United States must understand the various requirements that must be fulfilled for naturalization. Some are basic, but no less important. Residence and physical presence requirements fall into this category. Those who have all the other requirements but do not meet the criteria for residence and presence could find themselves unable to be naturalized.

What are the citizen at birth rules for a child born in wedlock?

It is not unusual for people in San Diego, throughout California and across the U.S. to have a situation in which a child being a citizen at birth is a concern. There are certain general requirements for a child to be considered a U.S. citizen when they are born. For a child born in wedlock, it is important to understand the rules from the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). If the child was born of two U.S. citizen parents outside the U.S., the child is a U.S. citizen if, when he or she was born, both the parents are U.S. citizens; and at least on parent has lived in the U.S. or one of its outlying territorial possessions. If the child is born of a U.S. citizen parent and a U.S. national, the child will be a citizen if one parent is a U.S. citizen and the other parent is a U.S. national; and the U.S. citizen was in the U.S. or one if its outlying possessions for one year continuously.

San Diego-area immigrants celebrate new citizenship

In an area rich with ethnic diversity, El Cajon stands out. The city of approximately 100,000 sits just a few minutes northeast of San Diego. It recently celebrated its ethnically diverse population with a citizenship ceremony that transformed immigrants into U.S. citizens.

San Diego to help city workers apply for citizenship

Immigrants who work for the San Diego city government or at the airport are getting a nice, new benefit. Thanks to a partnership formed by the city, the airport, the National Immigration Forum’s New American Workforce and the Chamber of Commerce, legal immigrants will receive help at work in their efforts to become U.S. citizens.

The science of opposition to immigration

Here in San Diego, we are not only close to the border, we are near the center of many national debates over immigration issues. Not only would we be next to a wall, if one is built, but we have detention facilities here, as well as ICE offices and many immigration activists.

The fight for U.S. citizenship

He has twin tattoos: one of the Statue of Liberty and another of the Special Forces insignia. The proud veteran served two tours in Iraq, where he put his life on the line for his adopted country. Unfortunately, he was wounded while serving and sustained a traumatic brain injury. He also returned home with a diagnosis of post traumatic stress disorder.

Mayors condemn executive order

Showing that he intends to follow through with his campaign promise to restrict entry into the U.S. and deport undocumented immigrants, President Trump signed an executive order demanding law enforcement officials follow immigration laws. In adhering to these federal statutes, police officers would be responsible for jailing undocumented individuals so that they may be deported. Cities or counties that fail to obey this order would lose access to federal funds.

Muslim applicants see unexplained delays in citizenship approval

The process for becoming a naturalized citizen of the United States typically takes about six months. However, immigration attorneys in California and across the country are taking up the cause of the thousands of Muslims whose applications for citizenship have been funneled into a mysterious program which claims to investigate and root out potential national security threats. Many of these law-abiding residents wait years before their applications are accepted or bafflingly rejected.
