ASIA and U.S. Citizenship & Immigration Services present information session on citizenship
CLEVELAND – Asian Services In Action (ASIA), in partnership with United States Citizenship & Immigration Services (USCIS), held a free information session on becoming a U.S. citizen this past Saturday, March 24, 2012. Twenty-one participants from ASIA, USCIS Cleveland District Office, and local immigrant and refugee communities attended the session.
USCIS Community Relations Officer Guevara gave a presentation on the naturalization process, the naturalization test, and the rights and responsibilities of U.S. citizenship. Officer Guevara also held mock interviews.
“I believe the session was very informative,” said Eunice Park, an immigration attorney for ASIA’s Immigration Legal Services Program. “Two lawful permanent residents who already filed their N-400 applications volunteered to participate in the mock interview with a USCIS officer, which helped them to practically prepare for their actual upcoming citizenship interviews and tests.”
This citizenship information session was conducted as part of the Northeast Ohio Citizenship Integration Program (NOCIP) and was made possible by a grant from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.
