CAIR-Chicago Appeals Denial of Nationalization
July 2, 2008
CAIR-Chicago PILI Fellow Munsoor Hussain filed a denial of a naturalization application after a Muslim man was denied citizenship for failing to appear at an update interview. The man had been waiting for notice of an update interview, but neither he nor his representatives, CAIR-Chicago, received any notice. Prior to this, the man had passed all of the necessary requirements, including having passed the interview and exam in 2005. Since then, his application has been pending the name check. CAIR-Chicago will continue to represent the man throughout the appeal process.
