In 2011, CLINIC and seven national organizations received a multi-year and multi-state grant to increase the number of eligible Lawful Permanent Residents (LPRs) to become U.S. citizens by assisting them with the naturalization process through the development of innovative approaches and technologies and exchanging best practices.
As I have just returned from my time in the Holy Land with Bishop Dominic and the grand gathering of members of the “Neocatechumenal Way,” and the double canonizations of now Saints John XXIII and John Paul II, I turn to the opening words of St. Paul’s letter to the Romans (written short years before his own martyrdom in Rome c. AD 64-67) where he says “To all in Rome, beloved of God and called to holiness, grace and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.”
On February 4, 2014, USCIS released its long-awaited revision of the Form N-400 (Application for Naturalization). A draft of the new form was published in the Federal Register for comment on December 20, 2012 and again on March 20, 2013. CLINIC submitted comments on the draft together with the American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA) on February 15, 2013. The comments are posted on the CLINIC website at https://cliniclegal.org/resources/revisions-to-application-for-naturaliz....
