The Asian Pacific American Legal Center (APALC) will host a free citizenship application assistance workshop for many Los Angeles County residents on Wednesday, April 18, 2007. The event, which begins at 6:30 p.m. and ends at 9:30 p.m., will be held at Alhambra Adult School, 101 S. Second Street , Room D-101, Alhambra , CA 91801 . Appointments are required; interested applicants should call APALC at (213)977-7500 x217 (Cantonese, English, Spanish).
“Immigrants work hard to support their families, learn English, and contribute to our communities,” said Yoshida. “We are concerned the proposed fee increases may prevent qualified immigrants from achieving the highlight of their immigration experience.”
APALC citizenship outreach coordinator, Cevadne Lee, added, “We suggest that immigrants who are qualified for citizenship now to consider applying sooner rather than later,” this is because USCIS said the fee increases may go into effect in June. “The workshop is a great place to get help with applying for citizenship.”
