FBI background checks into immigrants seeking citizenship in the United States should soon only take 30 days to complete on average, a federal official says.
Jonathan Scharfen, acting director of U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, said during a visit to Boston this week that prospective U.S. citizens will soon no longer be forced to endure years of waiting for such background checks to be completed, The Boston Globe said Wednesday.
Official: Faster immigration inquiries due
Good news.

You got that right. We don't need any corners cut.

Agreed. I recently posted an article where the applicants were demanding that a law be passed that allows them to come in before the FBI completed their background checks.

I hope that isn't their solution to "faster service". I'm still a huge proponent of a temporary moratorium until we clean up the millions of tons of trash that floated over from SOB.

I think stomping on the nutz of those who go the illegal route will accomplish the same thing....

I agree that maybe it will encourage more poeple to go the legal route but I also wonder if it is gong to be so quick if everyone will checked out as thouroghly and people who shouldn't pass by the system will.
