Library to host free naturalization workshop

By From page A5 | May 28, 2014

FAIRFIELD — A free session is scheduled June 7 in Fairfield to help people who have questions about the naturalization process.

The informational session will take place from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at the Fairfield Civic Center Library.

It’s co-sponsored by the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services and is part of a larger agency initiative to help immigrants better understand the naturalization process, according to a Solano County Library press release.

Members of the public are invited to attend.

Federal officials will discuss specific steps in the naturalization process and provide information about eligibility and residency requirements, application forms, fees, the background security check and processing times. An interview demonstration will also take place.

Agency officials will make the presentation in English. Participants may bring their own interpreters if needed.

The library is located at 1150 Kentucky St. For more information, call 1-866-ASKUS or visit www.solanolibrary.com.

    Immigrants do pay taxes, Sam. Many are on work visas and want to become citizens. Why is that wrong?

    Its morally and loyalty / integrity wrong Jason to pay for moochers and parasite who enter illegally and then who vote for rat party for more. Sounds like the federal goons are having an illegal immigration amnesty meeting roundup and registry. The people's government should put all the interests of the people / citizens first,---especially the tax monies and not to comitt treason by passive acomodation or outright support of illegal immigration as a sort of communist social economic experiment in treasonous accommodation and public financing of same...California has turned into a lawless mess. I'm frankly shocked with what appears to be a total acceptance of rot...

    The reason people are angry, is that all the construction jobs in northern Ca have been taken over by low wage immigration works. All union labor jobs were taken over by low wage earners. So if Sam does not do the happy dance because our tax dollars are going to further this cause then too bad. Tax payer resources are going to hispanics. We are doing nothing for african american youth that are actually citizens. Not citizens because they were born here from illegal grandparents. No a lot of people do not like it.
