Green Card Holder from Palestine Naturalized After Suing Trump Administration
We just turned a green card holder from Palestine into a U.S. citizen after suing the Trump administration in District Court. Our client filed for naturalization through other counsel in 2015. He was previously charged with marriage fraud. After not being scheduled for examination for more than two years, he contacted us to see what could be done. After several inquiries to USCIS were ignored, we filed a Petition for Writ of Mandamus and Declaratory relief in District Court. A few weeks after serving the petition on the U.S. Attorney, our client was scheduled for a naturalization exam. One month later, our client was approved for naturalization and has now been sworn in as a U.S. citizen.
