Pass Bill Amending Law for Women Who Married Aliens

Download PDF for this date

The Cable bill amending the Naturalization law in favor of women who married aliens and lost their citizenship by marriage or residence with their husbands beyond the prescribed limits, has been adopted by the House.

The Cable bill permits such women to reenter the United States as non-quota immigrants and allows them to obtain immediate restoration of citizenship by appearing before a court of the proper jurisdiction and taking an oath of allegiance without delay or other formalities of any kind except proof of their identity. The bill now goes to the Senate and if passed there, will require only the President’s signature to become law.
