ABSTRACT
The article presents information on the method of naturalization law in operation in the U.S. as of April 1922. When an alien has received his certificate of arrival, he digs up his two witness and appears before the naturalization examiner in the district in which he lives. The naturalization examiner examines the candidate as to his fitness to become a citizen. Ninety days after this preliminary examination, which is a total farce in many cases, the alien again digs up his two witnesses and appears in court to be made a citizen of the U.S.
