Staff Writer, LOS ANGELES:- The tasks of distributing citizenship to qualified immigrants have been delayed in the US, because of the COVID-19 situation and the announcement of furloughing more than 13,000 employees of the US Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS).

The citizenship distribution works were stalled for months due to the pandemic and only resumed in June, 2020. More than 64,000 qualified immigrants received the citizenship in June, 2020.

As for the Nepali-Americans, more than 50,000 Nepalese have received the US citizenship so far, while more than 150,000 Nepalese have received the resident permits or the Green Cards.

The citizenship distribution events these days are not huge and are mostly organized in small groups to maintain social distancing and avoid further spread of COVID-19, as it has been observed.
