    Default Restrictions on Getting a Security Clearance That Negatively Affect Immigrants

    Brief background: 23yr old, born overseas, citizen and grew up in the United States. Attended college and graduated. Immediate family are all U.S citizens expect for mother who doesn't want it because the process is too cumbersome for her.

    The problem: The individual wants to work in the intelligence community and find as much success as talent, effort and knowledge will allow. However, Intelligence community has strict policies that prevent anyone with "immediate" family who are not U.S citizens from gaining jobs, security clearances or advancing. This applies to individual since his mother is not a U.S citizen nor will she ever apply to become a citizen (despite being eligible for the past 7 years). Individual finds policy unfair since it bases his ability and candidacy on the actions of another (In this case his mother).

    The Question: Is such a policy lawful? Does individual have ground to challenge such a policy?

    Unfair and illegal are two different things.

    if you are considering entering the intelligence field, you surely must understand the intent and purpose of such a rule. If not, then you are really not suited for the intelligence field.

    Oh good Lord.

    Of course it's legal.

    It should be obvious why.

    Incidentally exactly how cumbersome is it to naturalize?

    I know the real problem. It has nothing to do with your mom. You need your own theme song. Maybe something like this

    keep that on your mp3 player and whenever you go to speak to anybody about becoming an agent, play that in the background.
