  • Like being left at the altar

    an encouraging headline from this morning's (11/22) edition of the Austin American-Statesman: "INS puts citizenship on hold for hundreds"

    Some excerpts: " A directive issued by the Immigration and Naturalization Service calling for better documentation of background checks is delaying the citizenship of hundreds of would-be Americans, including 306 Texas residents who had been scheduled to be sworn in today in San Antonio."

    ".....Jaime Case, executive director of the El Buen Samaritano social services organization in Austin likened the situation to being left at the altar. 'It's a very painful reality,' Case said. ....

    ..."Applicants in Chicago also were told not to attend ceremonies this week. Across the country, an estimated 10 percent of would-be new American citizens have received notices that their swearing-in will be postponed."

    ....."Federal officials declined to discuss the specifics of the new measures and would not release a copy of (John)Williams' memo. They would also not say why some people's files contained the required documentation while others did not."

    This is truly a sad state of affairs and one wonders what will be next?

      This is a great thing and I don't care if you like it or not. We need less foreigners here.
