Was Route To Citizenship Too Easy for Bomb Suspect Faisal Shahzad? - AOL News

The Journal, citing an unnamed source, reported that Shahzad was granted an H-1B visa for skilled "specialty occupation" workers in April 2002. He stayed in the U.S. for three years on that visa while he earned an M.B.A. The newspaper said it was not clear what company sponsored his visa, as would be required under immigration laws.Shahzad reported on Oct. 20, 2008, that he had married Huma Asif Mian, a U.S. citizen. He became naturalized as a U.S. citizen six months later, taking an oath of allegiance in which he said he would "absolutely and entirely renounce and abjure all allegiance and fidelity to any foreign prince, potentate, state or sovereignty of whom or which I have heretofore been a subject or citizen."
