Backlog of immigration applications for prospective citizens

The wait time to hear back on a citizenship application can vary. As of the end of 2017, there were 725,000 people waiting to become U.S. citizens, including over 30,896 in New Jersey. Many people are taking a second look at the current immigration process to understand the reasons behind this backlog.

Financial aid unrestricted by immigration status in New Jersey

Policy regarding what types of public services undocumented immigrants can access vary from state to state. Recently, a change to New Jersey law was passed that allows for undocumented immigrant students to apply for financial aid as students. Under the new policy, students will be able to receive loans, grants and scholarships regardless of immigration status.
