Naturalizations and Deportations Both Hit Record High

World Journal, Posted: Nov 10, 2008

NEW YORK The U.S. Immigration and Naturalization Service reported Thursday that both the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) and Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) set a high productivity record this year. The World Journal reports that USCIS processed 1.17 million naturalization cases, which is 50 percent more than the number of cases that were processed last year. The time that it takes to process naturalization paperwork has been reduced from upwards of 18 months to about 10 months. USCIS expects the time will be shortened to five months next year. In the 2008 fiscal year, ICE deported 350,000 undocumented immigrants, which is a result of the Bush Administration's beefed up immigration law enforcement after Comprehensive Immigration Reform failed in Congress.
