US Citizenship: The Next Step for Miami Immigrants

US Citizenship: The Next Step for Miami ImmigrantsTuesday, April 7, 11am-1pm – The Carol Room at the Archdiocese of Miami, 9401 Biscayne Blvd, Miami Shores

Join New America Media for a roundtable discussion with Miami area ethnic media, immigrant advocacy organizations and recently naturalized citizens on the role of ethnic media in the citizenship campaign of 2015. How many Miami-Dade immigrants are eligible to apply for US citizenship — and what would happen if they did? How do changes in US-Cuba relations and Haitian family visas affect Miami immigrants? What are the major hurdles that prevent immigrants from becoming citizens, and what can ethnic media do to address them?
