Foster Parents; Children left behind?
Part 4 of 4.
In part 3, we made suggestions that may assist with this scenario. However, before we continue we would like to repeat our question from part 3.
- Question; is it possible that deporting the visitors and keeping their children is the point. This is not a way to encourage application for citizenship, but it is discouragement in the truest form of reality, an introduction to big government involvement in thier lives. Send them home and keep their children?
In the publication, “Disappearing Parents,” notice that three of the high volume states are along the Mexican border. In figure three, in this report, you can see that the age groups of those coming over the boarders illegally are between the ages of 25-34, young people trying to better their children’s lives by finding work.
- Yet we find on another document, same website, that only 4500 took steps to become naturalized citizens. Why is that?
One last question. Foster Parent do you know the steps to advise someone on how to become a citizen of America. Shall we find out?
- 1. If you are not a U.S. citizen by birth, you may be eligible to become a citizen through naturalization. People who are 18 years and older use the “Application for Naturalization” to become naturalized. Children who are deriving citizenship from naturalized parents use the “Application for a Certificate of Citizenship.”
- 2. You should send your completed “Application for Naturalization” (Form N-400) to your INS Service Center. NIS usually will tell you where your INS Service Center is when you request Form N-400.
- 3. $225. You must pay your application fee with a check or money order drawn on a U.S. bank in U.S. dollars payable to the “Immigration and Naturalization Service.”
- 4. After INS has received your application, it will notify you of the location where you should get fingerprinted. For more information about fingerprinting. For more information, please see the section “Fingerprint”.
- 5. The time it takes to be naturalized varies from one local office to another. In 1997, in many places, it took over 2 years to process an application. INS is currently modernizing and improving the naturalization process. Within the next 2 years, INS would like to decrease the time it takes to become naturalized to 6 months.
- 6. You become a citizen as soon as you take the Oath of Allegiance to the United States. In some places, you can choose to take the Oath the same day as your interview. If that option is not available or if you prefer a ceremony at a later date, INS will notify you of the ceremony date with a “Notice of Naturalization Oath Ceremony.”
