Miami ceremony welcomes over 150 new U.S. citizens

Over the recent Presidents' Day weekend, more than 150 people became American citizens at a ceremony in a Miami auditorium. The new citizens had come to the U.S. from 27 different nations -- the largest group was from Cuba. The ceremony was one of many throughout the U.S. conducted to mark the holiday.

The immigration interview is a critical step towards citizenship

One of the most important steps in the naturalization process is the interview with a representative of the Bureau of U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services. It is critical to be as prepared as possible for this meeting. In this post we'll run through a few things an applicant should and shouldn't do during the interview.

Getting the help you need to acquire citizenship

Immigrating to the United States is a lifelong dream for many people from countries without the opportunities available in our nation. Other times, visitors become so taken with the allure of life in America that they simply decide to stay, if possible. Our country is built upon a strong foundation of immigration; it is how so many of our families came to be here in the first place. While America still remains open to immigrants, the process is often quite a bit more difficult than people interested in relocating expect.

Proposal made to strike 'alien' from immigration laws

Immigration is one of the more contentious and political subjects in the U.S. People form hard and fast opinions about this issue based on their own experiences and changing minds can be an extraordinarily difficult task. Changing the laws is even more difficult.

Differences between US citizens, lawful permanent residents

The topic of immigration has long been a contentious one in the U.S. Despite the fact that this country was built on the idea that it should be a place for "huddled masses yearning to breathe free," immigration continues to be a thorny, complicated issue. Too many people see the issue as a black-and-white one: people are either citizens or living here unlawfully.

Applying for a fiancé visa

A foreign-born individual who would like to come to Florida in order to marry a U.S. citizen may be able to qualify for a fiancé visa. Before a fiancé visa can be issued, the foreign person's fiancé must file Form I-129F, Petition for Alien Fiancé. Once the petition is approved, the foreign fiancé will receive a K-1 nonimmigrant visa so that they can enter the United States.

Permanent residency for children of foreign diplomats

Special citizenship rules apply to individuals born in Florida or elsewhere in the U.S. to foreign diplomats who are officially assigned to the United States. Children of foreign diplomats, that is, are not considered U.S. citizens at birth even if they are born on U.S. soil. They may, however, be eligible for a green card as a permanent resident.

International adoption and visa requirements

When a Florida couple intends to adopt a child from a foreign country, the couple will need to make certain they have sought and obtained the required visas for their child. Children who are being adopted from abroad are required to enter the country on an immigrant visa.

Miami feels impact of surge in minor immigrants

Miami is one of 10 cities to which immigrant children crossing the Mexican border are being sent. With thousands of minors involved, the situation has reached a level that is reportedly stressing agencies involved in providing services during this immigration influx. Although the arrival of unaccompanied minors to the United States is far from a new concern, the numbers arriving in the last two years have increased dramatically. The majority of the children involved in the recent surge are from Central America. In some cases, they cross in groups, and in others, they cross with assistance from adults who are considered to be migrant smugglers.
