Immigration and Nationality Act (8 U.S.C. 1448(a)) is amended to read

is an individual with a disability, or a child, who is unable to 
understand or communicate an understanding of the meaning of the oath. 
If the Attorney General waives the oath for such an individual, the 
individual shall be considered to have met the requirements of section 
316(a)(3) as to attachment to the Constitution and well disposition to 
the United States.''.
