LOS ANGELES – Lawyers for a South Korean-born AMERICAN Army specialist who sued after the military discharged her saying that they were granted citizenship.
Yes Ji Sea filed a lawsuit last month asking for a response on her citizenship application.
The American Civil Liberties Union Foundation of Southern California, says they received notification Friday from the Ministry of Justice that its request is approved.
The sea came to the U.S. as a child and enlisted in the Army in 2013 in the framework of a special programme for foreign citizens who want to serve in the U.S. army.
The 29-year-old is scheduled to be sworn in as a U.S. citizen on Aug. 24.
On Tuesday, a federal judge told the government they have three weeks to rule on its request or explain the delay to the court.
