Hey guys, this is a question about how much foreign influence affects security clearance. Here is my case:
I am gay, and my husband-to-be is applying a job that requires Secret-level clearance. I am pursuing a PhD in engineering in the US. But the problem is that I am a Chinese citizen, and my family do not know that I am gay yet. My boyfriend and I got engaged before he applied his job… I know it’s complicated…All my family connections are Chinese (except an uncle-in-law, who is a naturalized US citizen), but none of their jobs are related to any intelligent agencies or high-level governments of PRC. My question is:
Should my background be a deal-breaker to the security clearance of my husband-to-be?
I am still planning to provide as much information of my family as I can to help to obtain his security clearance. I am worried that my famil.y will be contacted, interviewed and told that I am gay, so will this happen?
Thanks — so much — to whoever can give any answer/suggestion
