Immigration Paperwork Screw Things Up.

Ten thousand marriages have been delayed because the Department of Homeland Security has failed to come up with a new visa form.

And, millions of poor and disabled Americans will have trouble getting medical care starting July 1, 2006, due to new Medicaid proof of citizenship requirements.

Elsewhere, citizenship requirements have removed large numbers of married women from state voter rolls, because identification requirements like birth certificates weren't matched to the married names and marriage licenses weren't promptly available.
