Naturalization Saga: Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals      


In May 6, 1919, Dr. Thind petitioned for Citizenship at the US District Court of Oregon. In November of 1920, the District Court of Oregon granted Dr. Thind his citizenship.

However, the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals reviewed the case and sent it to the US Supreme Court for review. The Supreme Court later rescinded Dr. Thind's citizenship, stating that Dr. Thind was not a white person according revised statues. Below are a series of documents of the proceedings on the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals regarding Dr. Bhagat Singh Thind's saga for US Citizenship.
