USCIS Promises to Better Educate Employees About Immigrants’ Right to Non-Religious Citizenship Oaths - Washington, D.C.

Discriminatory treatment of an atheist seeking an alternative citizenship oath led to the most recent in a series of letters AU has sent to the Director of the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services, objecting to repeated violations of immigrants rights and requesting better training and education of USCIS officials. We received a reply directly from the USCIS Director agreeing with our position and promising to better educate USCIS employees about the legal requirements surrounding alternate citizenship oaths.
