New Americans Campaign: Citizenship mega workshop

Get the assistance you need to apply for citizenship, deportation relief or work permit

Miami… (August 14, 2014) Continuing the series of citizenship workshops started last year with the New Americans Campaign, NAC, Catholic Legal Services of the Archdiocese of Miami and its partners are proud to announce a new joint DACA-Citizenship workshop scheduled to take place on Saturday, September 13, 2014 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Florida International University’s College of Law, 11200 SW 8th Street, Miami, FL 33199.

At the workshop, NAC will provide assistance to complete the citizenship application to anyone eligible. A coalition of legal service providers and volunteers will be assisting eligible legal permanent residents, those who have been legal residents for five years or more, become U.S. citizens by completing the naturalization application.

The legal service is completely free, however, there is a USCIS $680 application fee. USCIS may waive the $680 fee if you receive food stamps, Medicaid, or SSI. To apply for the fee waiver applicants must have the letter of benefits in English from DCF and/or the Social Security Office.

As part of the mega workshop, eligible applicants may also get free immigration consultation, Dreamer Clinic, from DACA, Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, and receive help to apply for deportation relief and work permit. Requirements: have arrived in the U.S. before age 16, be 15-30 years old, have been physically present in the U.S. since June 15, 2007 to present, have a High School Diploma, or GED, have had no convictions of crimes, significant misdemeanors, or multiple minor misdemeanors.
