The Process Of Becoming A U.S. Citizen

Posted: Updated:

KENNEWICK, Wash - A common complaint when it comes to illegal immigration is that people should just become legal citizens. But, many don't know what a process that actually is. 

First, several forms must be filled out through U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services. 

Then, someone must apply for a Green Card and get fingerprinted, which costs almost four hundred dollars per person. 

After five years, they can apply for citizenship.  They must pass a test in English and again pay a fee.  That costs another four hundred dollars.
