“Based on today’s immigration climate, we would like to encourage our Asian community’s eligible Legal Permanent Residents to apply for the naturalization otherwise they may face deportation should any mishap happen,” said Winnie Tang, President of NANAY CEDC. “Today, there is no guarantee as a green cardholder.”
“After December 23, 2016, the naturalization fee has just increased to $725,” said Khanya Moolsiri, Chairperson of Thai-American Association of South Florida. “Legal Permanent Residents can receive a Fee Waiver and may not have to pay any government fee if receiving public benefits or household income below 150% of poverty line. We will assist to apply Fee Waiver and complete their N-400 for their first step to become Citizens.”
