While nation struggles with immigration new citizens sworn in

While much of the nation is divided about what immigration reform should look like, it is important that immigrants realize that the discussion has not changed the fact that for those who meet the guidelines, United States citizenship is still an option. This is illustrated by new Americans who recently swore their allegiance to the United States.

The naturalization ceremony took place as a part of the Miami Beach Centennial Celebration. As a way to celebrate the 100 year mark, 100 immigrants took the oath. The new citizens are from 25 different countries including:

  • Cuba
  • Argentina
  • Brazil
  • Czech Republic
  • Iran
  • Spain
  • Germany

There are of course many things that are necessary to qualify for U.S. citizenship. In addition to having a good grasp of American history and the English language, applicants must have a continuous physical presence in the country and good moral character.

While some people’s route to citizenship is clear and smooth sailing, others will have to address tings in their past. For example, immigrants who face obstacles due to factors such as criminal records, child support, lacking comprehension of English or the history or government of the U.S. might still be able to find a way to become a citizen. Depending on the specific circumstances surrounding the issue, an immigration lawyer may be able to see beyond the issues.

Even those who do not think there is any way for them to become a citizen could benefit from working with an immigration lawyer. This is because that individual can sort through the facts to determine whether the necessary factors are in place.
