In the past few weeks, we have seen naturalization interviews being scheduled on short notices at local USCIS offices and if the applicant passes the interview, he or she will be sworn in as an U.S. citizen right away.
If you are a MAVNI soldier waiting for BCT or background checks, and has not yet applied for naturalization. Please do not hesitate to contact an experienced immigration attorney to file your naturalization application, or alternatively contact The American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA) Military Assistant Program.
在 INA§329 的军队公民申请计划下，MAVNI预备役军人，但BCT的日期被延迟或取消，也可以有资格入籍。换句话说，只要服役一天就可以使得外国国民有资格入籍。我们的办公室已成功帮助许多MAVNI预备役军人提交申请公民文书。如果您的BCT延迟，您可能仍有资格成为美国公民。
While Military Accessions Vital to the National Interest (MAVNI) is in the limbo and Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) DREAMers are facing an uncertain future, this week, U.S. Representative Jeff Denham (R-Turlock) re-introduced the Encourage New Legalized Immigrants to Start Training Act (ENLIST Act). The ENLIST Act applies only to undocumented immigrants who were under the age of 15 when they were brought to the U.S. by their parents prior to 2012. They have to speak English, have a high school degree, as well as passing other strict military requirements. However, it does not guarantee applicants would be accepted into the military.
Denham’s bill was introduced in 2014, and again in 2015, but never passed. The ENLIST Act is not to incentivize more illegal immigrants to come to the United States because it only applies to people who are already in the U.S.
本周，美国代表Jeff Denham（R-Turlock）重新介绍了“鼓励新的合法移民开始培训法”（ENLIST法案）。 ENLIST法案仅适用于2012年之前由父母带到美国的15岁以下的无证移民。他们必须说英语，具有高中学历以及通过其他严格的军事要求。 然而，它不保证申请人将被接纳进军队。
