Federal immigration office will open in Nashville for first time, Memphis staff will get more help
"Nashville will soon have its first federal workers devoted to helping immigrants become citizens, according to staff in U.S. Rep. Jim Cooper's office."
"At least four new 'citizenship interviewers' will begin working out of Nashville, said Greg Hinote, Cooper's chief of staff. At least four others will beef up the staff in the Memphis office, the only existing immigration service office in the state."
"The effort to establish a federal immigration office in Nashville has been going on for more than a decade, according to congressional staff members and immigration lawyers."
