OI 319.1 American institutions of research.
Before determining whether recognition shall be extended, evidence similar to that required to support an application on Form N-470 shall be submitted, and a check of the Records Branch of the FBI and CIA shall be made unless (1) the institution is a recognized and well-known school, institute, college, university, committee, commission, foundation, society, organization, business concern, or corporation, or (2) the activities of the institution are connected with a program or project of the United States G
overnment; furthermore, even in such an instance, when there is any indication that the nature and activities of the institution may possibly involve a security question, such as propagandizing, the check shall be made. So that the list of American institutions of research in
8 CFR 316.20
may be supplemented, the regional commissioner shall forward a copy of each decision on that issue to the Assistant Commissioner, Naturalization.
OI 319.2 Employment by organization disseminating information.
Section 319(c) contemplates that the principal purpose of the employment organization be the dissemination of information abroad, but is silent as to whether the services of the employee of such an organization are to be performed within or outside the United States during all of the required period of five years. ACcordingly, an employee of a qualifying organization is eligible or benefits of section 319(c), notwithstanding that part of the five-year period of employment includes services that were perfor
med within the United States.
