On my N-400 application (for citizenship, based on marriage to a U.S. citizen), there is a question about "Have you ever been detained?" I put yes, though it was not an arrest, simply a stop at a border patrol checkpoint to verify my status because I left my green card at home. This actually happened twice over the course of a few days. As soon as I could, I obtained my green card via FedEx. As for my citizenship application and interview, I received a notice that I needed to bring the records of detainment with me. I have requested it, but it could be ages before I get anything, and my interview is next week on April 8th. Do you think that this will affect my chances of being recommended for approval for citizenship?
If you want to visit or move permanently to the US, you'll want to learn about your different immigration options.
In order to become US citizens and enjoy the benefits that citizenship grants, immigrants must go through the naturalization process.
