On May 23, 2008, Nick became a United States citizen. Even though he looks and talks like one of us, he’s secretly been living the life of an alien for the past up-teen years. He even had a green-card proving his alienship. Once a judge threatened Nick with deportation so deep down he’s always known that he needed to trade in his alien-roots and jump on the American citizenship bandwagon. Just in case. Last summer before the huge increase in fees, he sent in his paperwork to begin the lengthy process. The process entailed tests, interviews, gathering a ton of records, fingerprints… you name it. Now, nearly one year later, Nick turned in his green-card, chanted the Pledge of Allegiance, and was handed his pretty certification of U.S. citizenship. He’s not an alien anymore. Welcome to America, Nick!
