WNYC: Want to Become a U.S. Citizen? Prepare to Wait Longer

WNYC reports that, while USCIS states that citizenship applications take approximately eight months on average to process, many attorneys in the New York area are reporting that it is taking two-to-four times that long. Katie Tichacek, a USCIS spokeswoman, stated that the delays are caused in part by a 24 percent increase in naturalization applications since last fiscal year, while also acknowledging that more applicants were being interviewed since President Trump signed an executive order in March that purported to make the nation safer by, among other things, barring Muslims and refugees from coming to America.
