Citizenship a 'smash' for badminton champ

Tony Gunawan is not a celebrity in California, where he resides, but in his native Indonesia, he is a household name. The man is a two-time world champion and Olympic champion in badminton, a sport with a rabid following in East Asia. Now Gunawan is an American, having successfully completed the citizenship and naturalization process and he hopes to represent the United States in the London Olympics.

California's own 'Dream Act' provides initial hope for many

Recently, California immigrants who were brought into the United States illegally by their parents were given a bit of hope from 'The Dream Act.' Many hope it will be the first step towards acquiring citizenship for many immigrants.

Celebration of acquired citizenship by Mexican Immigrant

Those who were born in the United States have always known the joy of citizenship. But for those who were born elsewhere, came to this country and later acquired U.S. citizenship, that joy does not always come easy. Many find that it can be daunting, both legally and emotionally. This was the case for one man in California.

Workers without green cards the focus of San Diego E-Verify program

Thousands of people come to the United States to find work every year. But in order to do so, many workers come into the country illegally, despite not being eligible for a green card. There has been much discussion on Capitol Hill over the past few years on this issue, and a new immigration law has been proposed that will require employers to verify that their employees are legally permitted to work in the country. California, like many other states, has begun to investigate whether the newly introduced E-verify measures are reasonable.

Two men arrested in green card forgery ring

Becoming a U.S. citizen can be a long and difficult process. Many foreign nationals come to the U.S. on temporary work visas, but removal of conditional residences status prevents these people from acquiring green cards, without which they cannot legally stay in the U.S.. Because of this, immigrants sometimes resort to other methods in order to stay and maintain the only life that they have known. Unfortunately, these methods do have legal risks.

A hard path to citizenship for undocumented immigrants

Few options are available to people who want to become legal residents who arrive without documentation from Mexico to California for work and, or business related purposes. Many immigrants come to California seeking cheap labor jobs. They often come here alone hoping to become legal residents, and they often arrive without documentation, thereby needing to acquire citizenship.
