The Associated Press reported that the U.S. Government has delayed thousands of immigration court hearings for five years. While this move appears to be a concession to individuals in immigration proceedings, attorneys representing those whose hearings have been delayed fear it may affect their clients' cases if evidence is considered stale or circumstances related to the case change in the coming years.
The Huffington Post is reporting on a a veteran whose citizenship suddenly came into question almost 50 years after he arrived in the U.S. as a child. The story indicates that U.S Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) is reviewing his case. The Immigration and Nationality Act (INA) provides for veterans to apply for expedited naturalization in some circumstances, and if this individual's parents naturalized when he was under the age of 18 he may have derived citizenship from them.
