Smile Finally .... I am a US citizen

Finally I am a US citizen after being 10+ years in this country. This is one of my biggest fulfillments and it means everything to me. US is just not home anymore for me, it is my country.

I wish everyone the best and hope they get GC very soon.

Proud to be an indian-american and legal immigrant.

Good Luck!

Congrats man! Happy for you and your biggest fulfillment.

By any chance, are you originally from INDIA? If so, we're pleased to strike off one more suckup from our list of billion people.

Goodluck!

Good Luck!
Why are you so PROUD to be an American? Just be happy for it...its just your need so that you can live in this country for as many year as you want and of course its good achievement and i am happy for you, you just lived here for 10+ yrs and you forgot your Home country where you were born and gave you a good education with you had an opportunity to come here and make your life based on that..you should be PROUD of that country no matter where you go and what you achieve its all because of you Home Country

If you are form INDIA then you should say "Mera Barath Mahan" first and then "God Bless America"

Many Congrats!! to you on your American Citizenship Good Luck!!

I understand your frustration. Believe me I have gone thru the same.

When I filed for my I-485 in 2000, the PD was current for me for 23 months in row when it got approved. Can you believe this? PD was current for whole 23 months while I-485 was pending.

One of my goals is to help my future legal immigrants. Being a US citizen gives me vote voice and power. I am open to suggestions. I would like to help my fellow legal immigrants.

I know, the wait time is long, but it is worth it every bit.

Good Luck to everyone.

I don't have to tell anyone how I feel about my country-of-origin. Whatever I am, I am due to India.

One can take man of out India, but never India out of man.

Hmmm so you have been a victim of random processing too? The situation is a mess no doubt. But this random processing really hits where it hurts the most...

IF ONLY everyone who gets a GC approval or citizenship could work at the CIS for a year... a sort of community service.... All of the problems wrt the random processing will go away...

I am sure most people on this board can hit the ground running and don't require extensive training... unlike the present day IOs.

May I ask, who are you to strike anyone off?
BTW, I am applying for OCI.

Good Luck to you.
