The Trump administration takes another step to improve the country’s vetting protocol.
On Monday, the Department of Homeland Security said it plans to require more people to undergo in-person interviews before granting them citizenship.
The groups specified are those already in the U.S. on business visas as well as refugees hoping to sponsor family members to join them in the country.
The new procedures include more in-depth questioning as a means to screen for underlying security risks and fraud.
Officials say the latest measure reflects the administration’s commitment to upholding and strengthening the integrity of the country’s immigration system.
