Hi Dorothea,

How long have you been living in the USA as a green card holder? How long do
you plan to live here in the future?

I was in a similar situation and that was one reason why I decided to become
CH-US dual citizen. Now, I am free to leave and return to the USA whenever I
want and do not need to worry about permits, etc. anymore. If you are eligible,
I would suggest you to consider doing this step. If the current government
stays in power, things only get worse for aliens living in the USA.

The following link allows you to determine for yourself, whether you are or
when you will be eligible for naturalization:

Best regards,
Peter Buerki
