Non-citizen U.S. troops have filed a class-action lawsuit over the naturalization process.


On April 24, 6 U.S. troops filed a class-action lawsuit after being blocked from an expedited naturalization process. To qualify for the expedited process, servicemen must provide Pentagon certification that they have served honorably. Previously, this certification was available one day after starting their service. In 2017, the Trump administration changed the requirement, making non-citizen troops wait 180 days to receive the certification. According to the lawsuit, the change in policy caused a 72% drop in military naturalization applications.
