Thread: Immediate Citizenship

  1. #1
    Guest
    My nephew became a Legal Resident 1 1/2 years ago. He joined the United States Marines in October 2003. On July 3, 2002, Mr. Bush signed an "Expedited Naturalization Executive Order" authorizing all Armed Forces members, serving in support of "The Fight against Terrorism",to become United States Citizens without having to wait the normal three years for members of the Armed Forces. Fortunately for him, he did not have to go. My question is for those individuals knowledgeable about immigration matters, Can he apply for citizenship based on the executive order below signed by President Bush on July 3, 2002?


    Expedited Naturalization Executive Order
    Executive Order Expedited Naturalization of Aliens and Noncitizen Nationals Serving in An Active-Duty Status During the War on Terrorism


    By the authority vested in me as President by the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America, including section 329 of the Immigration and Nationality Act (8 U.S.C. 1440) (the "Act"), and solely in order to provide expedited naturalization for aliens and noncitizen nationals serving in an active-duty status in the Armed Forces of the United States during the period of the war against terrorists of global reach, it is hereby ordered as follows:

    For the purpose of determining qualification for the exception from the usual requirements for naturalization, I designate as a period in which the Armed Forces of the United States were engaged in armed conflict with a hostile foreign force the period beginning on September 11, 2001. Such period will be deemed to terminate on a date designated by future Executive Order. Those persons serving honorably in active-duty status in the Armed Forces of the United States, during the period beginning on September 11, 2001, and terminating on the date to be so designated, are eligible for naturalization in accordance with the statutory exception to the naturalization requirements, as provided in section 329 of the Act. Nothing contained in this order is intended to affect, nor does it affect, any other power, right, or obligation of the United States, its agencies, officers, employees, or any other person under Federal law or the law of nations.

    THE WHITE HOUSE,
    July 3, 2002.

    He joined October 2003? I don't get it, do you mean he will join October 2003?

    As soon as he is out of bootcamp, he can apply for citizenship.

    Thank you for the correction.

    My nephew joined on October 2002. Does that mean he is eligible to apply? He's been out of bootcamp since mid February 2003.

    Thank you,

    Juan

    What is he waiting for then?

    Tell him to go his Military Personnel Flight (this term might only be used in the AF, and USMC might have other term for personnel filing) and start the process. Is he waiting for the tech school to be over?

    Thank you, Bushmaster. Are you in the Air Force by any chance.

    I will be filling out his N-400 and his G-325 Authobiographical Data. Are there any other forms that he needs to fill out.

    Do I need to include the Execute Order signed by Mr. Bush along with the N-400 and G-325?

    Thank you,

    Juan

    No I am not in the Airforce, I will be Army hopefully, but I do know that USMC will take care of everything. He needs to get the naturalization guide from his personnel command. Without that you will not know what to do. And also the personnel staff is going to file the application.

    Thank you, again Bushmaster. I am prior Army. I spent 5 months is Saudi Arabia during Desert Shield/Desert Storm.

    The information that you have provided is definitely helping and will help a lot in getting my nephew naturalized.

    Thank you,

    Juan

    Nice meeting you Juan, what did you do in the Army?

    Also please keep in touch about the entire natz. process of your nephew... I'd like to have an idea on how long the process would take. I am assuming a year of course depending on the office.

    You can reach me at this forum...

    your nephew should be eligable for naturalization by now. He'll just need some paperwork from the military that he's active duty in good standing (like Bushmaster explained to you already), military legal aids assist with the paperwork that needs to be sent off to Washington (and which can take a long time to be processed). Good luck!
