Free Webinar: Reducing Barriers to Citizenship
from National Partnership for New Americans
Webinar on Reducing Barriers to Citizenship:
New Research and the Need for a Partial Fee Waiver
January 8, 2015 – 4pm ET / 1pm PT
The National Partnership for New Americans (NPNA), along with key allies, invites you to an important webinar right after the New Year focused on reducing the barriers to citizenship.
There are roughly 8.8 million lawful permanent residents in the United States who are currently eligible to apply for citizenship, yet the number of those naturalizing has been less than 800,000 for the past five consecutive years. In 2013, a mere 8.9 percent of eligible immigrants applied for citizenship.
This webinar will present the first-ever analysis of who those immigrants are by income, ethnicity, and education shedding light on the serious issue of how the cost of citizenship has become a systemic barrier for low-income immigrants, particularly Mexican immigrants, to become U.S. citizens.
