Pan-Asian Citizenship Clinic Targets Country's Fastest-Growing Immigrant Population

On national citizenship day, Asian Americans Advancing Justice - Los Angeles (Advancing Justice-LA) hosted their largest citizenship clinic of the year. Amid the Trump administration’s attack on immigrant communities, including the recent rescinding of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, Advancing Justice-LA urges eligible individuals to not delay in applying for citizenship.

How Do You Explain Hate?

For the past month, the students in my citizenship class have been learning about American civics in preparation for naturalization. In particular, they learned about all of the wars the U.S. has been a part of and the lessons that we have learned from them. They learned about the Civil War and the importance of equality when the northern states defeated the south and abolished slavery. They also learned about World War II and how entire nations had to come together to fight against hate and the Nazis in Germany.
