Abstract/Citation: Establishes procedures implementing an administrative naturalization process as provided for by recent changes in the immigration laws. The rule streamlines the administrative naturalization process since the courts are now removed from routing decisions approving applicants for naturalization. As a result of this rule, application for naturalization will be processed within the Immigration and Naturalization Service, with the role of the courts limited to administration of the oath of allegiance in some circumstances, and judicial review of administrative denials.
