In response to the coronavirus pandemic, all naturalization ceremonies and interviews have stopped, and USCIS has not indicated that it will consider any remote alternatives. So far, tens of thousands of immigrants have been affected, and postponed ceremonies and interviews continue to pile up. For each day USCIS remains closed, 2100 immigrants will run out of time to vote in this year’s election. Advocates have noted that there is no reason why ceremonies and interviews cannot happen via video conferencing, since many other government processes do.
