Bayonne city officials announced, next week in city hall there would be an information session on citizenship and immigration issues.
A nonprofit organization, we are one New Jersey, is organizing this event. In Hudson County, it aims to provide assistance to immigrant workers so that they become United States Citizens and enjoy the rights of citizenship.
The city spokesman Joe Ryan said, on March 19 info session will be held in city hall at Bayonne’s Dorothy Harrington City Council Chambers at 630 Avenue C. The session time starts at 6 p.m. and would end at 8 p.m.
Bayonne Mayor Jimmy Davis in his statement said that, the nonprofit organization is expected to explain the US President’s execution on immigration and how eligible residents can prepare for it. It will also discuss the services, which it offers concerning citizenship and related immigration issues.
The mayor also thanked the organization for coming to Bayonne.
As per the non-profit organization’s report, Hudson country is home to 93000 legal permanent residents. And they are eligible to become U.S citizens, but may lack any of these, financial resources, English language skills or time. And hence their dream of American citizenship is not fulfilled.
The non-profit organization also provides guidance on U.S citizenship application and Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) application. It also provides assistance on renewal, notary services and makes understanding workplace rights.
Ryan further added that, the non-profit organization’s goal is to build stronger communities by educating and engaging new Americans to become participants in democracy. They provide services at low or no cost. Those who are interested can contact the non-profit organization through phone or email.
On June 15, 2012, Obama Administration implemented Deferred Action Policy.
