From page A4 | May 08, 2014 |

FAIRFIELD — Representatives from the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services will host a free information session June 7 at the Fairfield Civic Center Library.

The workshop is part of a federal initiative to help immigrants understand the naturalization process and become familiar with free educational resources and materials, according to a press release.

Government staff will discuss citizenship eligibility and residency requirements and offer information on the application process. Representatives will also demonstrate the citizenship interview and offer sample questions from the citizenship test as well as an overview of U.S. history and civic principles.

The two-hour session starts at 10:30 a.m. at the library, 1150 Kentucky St. For more information, call Sharon Rummery at 415-987-0191.

    I've got a ''Los familiios grande racista Mexicanos'' living next to me. You can hear their threatening and profane words and see their written comments at YouTube.com Sewer Soon City - Rights violated, Citizens Not Protected. Oh yeah, and of course, the government of traitors does nothing and says its all my fault.

    In other words, the rats and government of traitors are actively aiding, abetting and promoting illegal immigration. This is what Congressman Garamendi is doing to us!

    So do the tax payers pay for these free classes? I find it hilarious that not only do the illegal immigrants come here and collect all the welfare and section 8 and then Solano County just passes out food stamps like its nothing! Not including the free college education they get for being an illegal!. It's kinda disgusting!. Waste of money and time trying to teach a small group about legalization when you have 100 if not 1,000's of people jumping the borders daily!.

    Not to mention all the gang shootings etc how do we make it stop ? Seems if you are against immigration you are labeled a bigot which is do wrong. I have a grandson who is half Hispanic and a daughter who is half black and half white . I'm not a racist. When I go to the mall especially on a Sunday I feel like I'm in a different country not America!

    Try the same crap in Mexico and see what happens. It's almost impossible to get a job without a expensive permit. The citizens can actually arrest you and tune you in. It's in their constitution! There's no handouts for Americans. If you cross their southern boarder see what happens to you!!! I'm against this illegal crap with Canadians also on our northern boarder. It doesn't matter what way you sneak into this country, or what race you happen to me. Just raise taxes up a little more to cover all these taxes, what's the big deal right, while the jobs flee some more. Half the population doesn't even pay Federal taxes. If you pay, and then get it all back in a refund, and some even more, you aren't a taxpayer!!! How that's even remotely fair??? At some point the government will run out of money to steal from people to pay for all thee free handouts.

    Screen name ''In The Hood'' you have a God given right to express your displeasure and contempt and you must aim it squarely at the politicians and their protectors, the cops. You and your pals should show up unexpectedly at Local Governing bodies public meetings and hurl your angry words at them. I don't care if you don't vote or are a rat Democrat. You are a citizen and you have unalienable rights. You must act and soon before its too late.
