As part of the New Americans Campaign, Miami Dade College in partnership with Catholic Legal Services, will host information sessions to assist members of the community, staff and students to complete their naturalization applications.
During the information sessions, staff and immigration attorneys will explain how to apply for citizenship as well as eligibility requirements. Staff will explain how to register for naturalization. Participants should be prepared to complete the process at a Free Citizenship Clinic on March 19, at Marlins Park, which MDC is supporting. There will be more than 400 volunteers, including more than 150 attorneys at the Citizenship Clinic in March.
