Have you personally ever seen an illegal immigrant with a misdemeanor in domestic violence be granted citizenship?

Kenosha, WI |

I just would like to know if you personally have ever seen a person with a misdemeanor in domestic violence be granted citizenship. I am not including details, but I just want to know if it is possible. Thank you.

No. Only permanent residents can be granted citizenship.

If your question is about being granted permanent residence, then you're going to have to clarify whether you're asking about a person who was arrested or a person who was convicted, and also what particular charge you're talking about - otherwise, your question (which I believe I've seen asked before) is really too vague to answer here with anything more than "maybe". Good luck!

Depending on the circumstances, yes it is possible. And yes, not only have I seen it, I have done it before.

Illegal immigrants are never eligible to file for citizenship.
