How Hard Is It To Become A U.S. Citizen?

All too often, immigrants give up on the prospect of becoming a United States citizen without even trying. They believe that they are not eligible, or that the naturalization process is too difficult. Becoming a U.S. citizen may not be easy, but it is possible, and the rights and opportunities that come with citizenship make it worth the effort.

U.S. green cards

Green cards allow immigrants to become legal U.S. citizens. They provide immigrants with citizen rights and work eligibility. Obtaining a green card is not always an easy or straightforward process. There are many prerequisites and criteria that you must meet before you can receive a green card.

ID cards used for a lot more these days in some cities

Municipal identification cards issued by a growing number of U.S. cities to make it easier for immigrants living in the country illegally and poor people to open bank accounts and access social services are now being used as passes for anything from pharmacy discounts to free museum memberships.

It is commonly assumed that someone who does not have citizenship in the United States does not have any rights. This is false, however, as the 14th Amendment guarantees the right to due process of law to all people within states' jurisdiction. This applies to any person, citizen or not. Many undocumented immigrants face the risk of deportation simply based on the color of their skin on a daily basis, a fact that was proven with the targeting of Latino males in Chicago in early August.

Are U.S. Courts Picking On Immigrant Children?

Most agree that immigration law is complex. To make matters more challenging, the law is constantly in flux. Even now, President Obama's immigration reform plan is tangled up in the Supreme Court. In a recent article released by CNN, Senator Patrick Leahy takes U.S. immigration courts to task for allowing children to represent themselves against federal prosecutors in deportation cases.
