Our client fell victim to the act. She had been passing through a parking lot of an Illinois shopping mall and was approached by a voting booth representative. Asked if she is registered to vote, our client stated she is not a US citizen. The representative asked if she is married to a US citizen, and if so, she is able to vote due to that status.
Our client wished to become a U.S. citizen after years of holding her green card (permanent resident status). We were therefore retained to help her legally become an American. To achieve that end, we completed and filed an N-400 Application for Naturalization to the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (also known as U.S.C.I.S., a branch of the Department of Homeland Security, commissioned to examine and appropriate immigration benefits).
