Residents get closer to U.S. citizenship during free clinic

On Saturday, April 21st Catholic Migration Services and New York Lawyers for the Public Interest (NYLPI) teamed up with volunteer lawyers from law firms throughout the City for a day long naturalization workshop in Brooklyn. Attorneys assisted eligible green card holders with the application process at no cost, making the process accessible for low-income New Yorkers. The path to citizenship brings with it numerous benefits like the opportunity to vote, petition for family members, and receive the ultimate relief from deportation.
