Permanent resident Vs. Citizen
Posted Wednesday, October 7, 2009 at 9:34 PM
Does anyone know if the citizen requirement is "written in stone" or is it just a requirement to make sure the candidate does not have a language problem and/ or not enough background in the states ?
I have lived in the states for over 25 years (since 4th grade) and I am 3 years away from my citizenship. I am a permanent resident (Green Card), and since I have lived here most of my life a background check can be performed all the way to my childhood if need be.
If the citizen requirement is a must, is it the same for correction officers ? if so do I have any other options/ positions in Metro to do my 3 years until I get my citizenship ?
Thank you for your time and help.
