Curriculum For ""I Like To Be An American!": Current Issues In U.S. Naturalization And Nationality Law"
In the Post-9/11 era, whether for reasons of patriotism, assimilation,
political activism, avoidance of hassles at the ports of entry, a desire to
sit on a high-profile Hollywood jury, or the wish to eliminate any future
exposure to grounds for detention or removal, many clients today are
seeking to gain the benefits of U.S. citizenship. Others are concerned
about the implications of dual nationality as a snare for NSEERS
enforcement, or about activities that will cause a loss of citizenship.
Still others want to shed U.S. nationality and return to the home country
or claim status as a U.S. national as a defense to deportation. This new
series will feature a panel of nationally renowned experts who will
comprehensively address naturalization, citizenship and nationality law
issues in detail.
