(RNN) - New U.S. citizens are still being welcomed by former President Barack Obama.
Letters of welcome and congratulations on becoming a newly naturalized citizen still carry Obama's signature and not that of President Donald Trump.
According to a spokeswoman for Citizenship and Immigration quoted by The Arizona Republic, it's not uncommon for a new president to take a few months to get their own paperwork finalized, but generally during that time no letters are sent rather than one bearing the predecessor's name.
Trump has been president for three days shy of six months and has yet to nominate candidates for hundreds of government positions.
