Fourteen Muslims sue U.S. government over lengthy citizenship application delays

Fourteen Muslims who have been waiting 2 to 5 years for their applications to be processed, are alleging that the US government has stalled their citizenship applications with indefinite background checks. In a lawsuit filed in February 19th in Florida’s Middle District federal court, the plaintiffs do not allege religious discrimination. However, they say that the CIS’ expansion of FBI background checks required for naturalization has ensnared several Muslims.
