Poll Question  

Part 8.3 of the revised Form N-400 asks you to list all trips of 24 hours or more an applicant has taken abroad in the past five years."

True or False? You do not need to list trips more than five (or three) years ago because by statute the applicant for naturalization need only demonstrate trips outside the United States for her/his statutory period of continuous residence.
