Citizenship Delay: Hear About the Issue from Government Representatives
May 18, 2006

Have you passed the citizenship examination and have been waiting for over 120 days?

Jerry Heinauer
Acting District Director of the Chicago Office of U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS)

Carol Hallstrom
Community Liaison for the Department of Homeland Security (DHS)

Federal Agents (TBA)
Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI)

Ahmed Rehab
Executive Director, CAIR-Chicago

Christina Abraham
Moderator / Civil Rights Coordinator, CAIR-Chicago
When: Thursday, May 18th, 6:30pm – 8pm

Where: Mosque Foundation
              7360 W 93rd Street
              Bridgeview, Illinois 60455

Representatives from DHS will explain some of the reasons behind the delays in processing applications for citizenship. They will explain what USCIS and the FBI can and cannot do in terms of these delays. Although they will not be able to answer questions about specific cases, they will have inquiry forms on-hand for anyone who wishes to file an inquiry on their case. Questions will be written out by members of the audience, and a mediator will read them out to the speakers.

Intake will be performed on-site for members of the community who wish to discuss their experience of citizenship delay to see how we can help.
