Every week, we bring you practice
interviews, quizzes, resources, and the latest news that help you
for your US citizenship interview.
Today we are going to listen to
Francisco Pinedo a teacher and administrator from Soledad Adult
School. We are going to
practice the 9th interview from my new book, US Citizenship
Bootcamp. This interview focuses on the
vocabulary related to military service which can be a difficult conversation. Just as a person was a good soldier in the country of their birth, so can the same person be a good citizen in their chosen country, the United States.
Also, we depart a little bit from the interview script to have an extended conversation about registering for the Selective Service, a potentially problematic topic for men who come to the United States when they were young. At the end of the interview, we include further comments about Selective Service in English and Spanish.
Note from SSS.gov:
"The Selective Service System has not now, or in the past, collected or shared any information which would indicate a man's immigration status, either documented or undocumented."
"The Selective Service System has no authority to collect such information, has no use for it, and it is irrelevant to the registration requirement."
"Consequently, there is no immigration data to share with anyone."
