Staff Attorney Represents Muslim Man in Citizenship Delay Hearing
January 9, 2007
CAIR Chicago Staff Attorney Heena Musabji represented a Muslim man, unjustly delayed in obtaining citizenship, in federal court. He has been waiting 2 years and 5 months since he was told he passed his citizenship interview.
The Department of Homeland Security points to the FBI name check not being completed as the reason for the delay. The attorney representing the government has assured us that this individual’s background check has been expedited, and once the FBI name check is complete a decision will be made on his application.
