Persons from foreign countries seeking United States citizenship or legal residence will find this all-new guide an invaluable aid in helping them find their way through the lengthy requirement process. The author, an immigration attorney, presents a brief history of immigration to America and follows with a detailed discussion of the nation's ever-changing immigration laws. She describes the legal rights, benefits, and obligations that apply to temporary and permanent residents, and discusses grounds and procedures for deportation of undesirable aliens. A major section of the book presents basic requirements for U.S. citizenship, then takes readers step-by-step through the naturalization process, with explanations of a petition or application, forms to fill out, fees to pay, steps involved in filing an application, and following-up procedure to attain citizenship.
