New Immigration Law Counts Period of Serving as a Translator toward Naturalization
On December 28, 2012, U.S. President Barack Obama signed HR 6223 (PL 112-227). The law amends Section 1059(e) of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2006 to clarify that a period of employment abroad by the Chief of Mission or United States Armed Forces as a translator, interpreter, or in a security-related position in an executive or managerial capacity is to be counted as a period of residence and physical presence in the United States for purposes of qualifying for naturalization.
