USCIS and Los Angeles team up for Immigrant Integration and Citizenship Awareness
U. S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) and the City of Los Angeles renewed the agreement that promoted immigrant integration and citizenship awareness for an additional year in April 2012. They first entered into a letter of agreement in January 2012 as a measure to strengthen immigrant integration efforts in Los Angeles by means of proactive citizenship awareness, education, and outreach activities. Under the agreement, USCIS and the City of Los Angeles have collaborated to:
- Distribute educational materials highlighting U.S. citizenship and the naturalization process at city facilities;
- Hold information sessions for permanent residents interested in learning about U.S. citizenship;
- Provide training on the naturalization process and USCIS educational materials to librarians within the Los Angeles Public Library system; and
- Broadcast USCIS informational videos on local Los Angeles public access television, among other activities.
As the second largest, and one of the most diverse cities in the country, Los Angeles is the first city to enter into an agreement with USCIS to strengthen and enhance local immigrant integration efforts. This partnership highlights the unique federal and municipal roles in promoting immigrant integration. The objective of this targeted outreach is to increase awareness of citizenship rights, responsibilities, and the naturalization process among eligible permanent residents.
