ASIA has a new multilingual resource in English, Burmese, Chinese, Karen, Korean, and Nepali on its Citizenship and Immigration Resources page! If you know of any elderly legal permanent residents, or legal permanent residents with a disability, who might benefit from this information, please email or print and distribute these flyers to them.
One of the general eligibility requirements of becoming a U.S. citizen stipulates that the applicant must be able to speak, read, write and understand the English language and have knowledge of U.S. government and history. However, this eligibility requirement may be a prohibitive obstacle for legal permanent residents (LPRs) who are elderly, low-income, low-literate or illiterate, limited English proficient (LEP), and/or have a disability.
ASIA has created these information sheets in English, Burmese, Chinese, Karen, and Korean to provide information regarding options available to vulnerable LPRs pursuing their pathway to U.S. citizenship.
