U.S. Citizenship – New Programs
Hot on the heels of its successful outreach programs in Los Angeles and Chicago, the USCIS has most recently partnered up with Nashville, Tennessee to help permanent residents in their journey toward U.S. citizenship, by strengthening the citizenship education efforts in Metro Nashville. Currently, Tennessee is one of the highest ranked Southern states of immigrants. Thousands of immigrants and refugees settle into Nashville and Middle, Tennessee to begin their new lives in America. The goal of the partnership outreach programs is to facilitate immigrant integration into the community. One way the partnership has sought to achieve this goal is through seeking the help of the Nashville Public Library and creating the “New American Corner” program. The “New American Corner” is an integration resource for aspiring immigrants. The program is held in five public libraries and four community centers where resources such as English as a Second Language classes and classes to prepare aspiring citizens for the naturalization test and interviews. The immigrants, without undue financial burden, learn how to write and speak English at an accelerated rate and are well prepared for the naturalization process. The instructors distribute aspiring citizens with naturalization material like the Constitution, Bill of Rights, and important dates in history for aspiring citizens to not only successfully pass the naturalization test, but to also understand the history of the United Stated and the rights and responsibilities given to them as United States citizens.
As the partnership between the USCIS and Metro Government continues to grow, the program will establish a platform of information for all aspiring citizens. This will include providing immigrants with information about: (1) the most current U.S. Citizenship information, (2) false immigration service scams, (3) naturalization information sessions in the community, and (4) the various naturalization requirements for aspiring citizens who want to get permanent residency through EB1 or EB2.
Through the USCIS partnership in Los Angeles, the rate of aspiring citizens who have passed the naturalization interview and test on their first attempt has increased substantially. This in turn helps immigrants integrate in their communities more easily and feel more connected and at home in the United States. While the programs the USCIS is implementing are extremely successful with helping immigrants learn the fundamentals of gaining citizenship, it is nevertheless imperative to seek qualified legal assistance in order to choose the best visa option available for your respective needs. The application process is often overwhelming due to specific requirements and numerous nuances.
