Four tips for your naturalization interview

Becoming a naturalized citizen of the United States is within your reach. After completing your application for naturalization through the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services, you likely did not just sit back and wait. Ideally, if English wasn't your native language, you practiced and studied to improve your skills. You may have read and studied for your citizenship test or taken a class to help you prepare. The last hurdle is for you to nail the interview.

Does your child qualify for automatic acquisition of citizenship?

Having a child can leave you feeling overjoyed at the prospect of having a new life become part of your family. Of course, childrearing in any form can have its complications, and when your child's birth took place outside of the United States, you may wonder what impact that detail could have on his or her citizenship. Because immigration and citizenship concerns can often prove complex, feeling uncertain is understandable.

What you should know about the naturalization process

The path to citizenship can be one fraught with challenges and difficulties. There are complex legal matters at hand, and the process can be difficult to understand and navigate. Your application for naturalization could come back denied for no clear reason, but knowing your rights and how to protect your interests could ease some of the difficulty of this process.

Naturalization: a sometimes complicated process in Texas

Perhaps you're one of many Texas residents who came to the United States from another country. Hopefully, you're among those whose border crossings were peaceful and arranged well in advance, not conducted in dire circumstances while fleeing from imminent violence, poverty or danger. Either way, no matter if you've been in this state for a year or several decades, if you're hoping to apply for citizenship, you might be concerned about a number of issues.

Kids may become citizens when parents are naturalized

Under U.S. immigration law, an individual must be 18 or older in order to apply to become a U.S. citizen. Even though children are not allowed to apply for naturalization, they may automatically become citizens thanks to automatic acquisition of citizenship rules.

Trailblazing a path to citizenship

El Paso Independent School District Trustee Susie Byrd was aware of Border Patrol agents that once stopped students and teachers near Bowie High School located across the border from Mexico. She also knew of a past cheating scheme in the district that denied immigration students their educational rights by forcing them out of the district or stopping them from enrolling.
