I found the naturalization discussion (and class action complaint) provided in your recent issue to be very interesting. I noticed in the class action complaint, that quite a few of the denied natz. applicants could possibly be determined to be "nationals" from Iraq--albeit perhaps not, (as most/all were refugees or asylees...) Query if INA Section 331; 8 CFR Part 331 is a statutory bar from naturalization if a person is adjudicated to be a "national or denizen of countries with whom the U.S. is presently at war, unless their loyalty is fully established upon DHS investigation." The USCIS/INS naturalization pamplet lists "crimes against persons, and crimes against property," as temporary bars also. If arrest or admission of the crimes or elements is sufficient, or an attempt to not disclose these facts is sufficient, it is of course, more complex. Other's opinions?
