|Under the new law, appropriated funds may not be used to pay compensation to non-citizen employees with duty stations in the continental United States, unless they qualify under one of the following exceptions:• lawful permanent residents (i.e., green card holders) who are “seeking citizenship as outlined in 8 U.S.C. § 1324b(a)(3)(B);”
• persons admitted as refugees or granted asylum who have filed a declaration of intention to become a lawful permanent resident and then a citizen when eligible; or
• persons who owe “allegiance” to the United States (e.g., nationals of American Samoa, Swains Island, and Northern Mariana Islands, and nationals who meet other requirements described in 8 U.S.C. § 1408).
Non-citizens may be interviewed and considered for future employment. An offer of employment can only be made if the non-citizen candidate is a lawful permanent resident who is ‘seeking’ U. S. citizenship. A lawful permanent resident ‘seeking citizenship’:
• may not apply for citizenship until he or she has been a permanent resident for at least five years (three years if seeking naturalization as a spouse of a citizen),
• at which point he or she must apply for citizenship within six months of becoming eligible, and
• complete the process within two years of applying (unless there is a delay caused by the processors of the application).
