Press Release

Washington, D.C. – On Saturday, June 3, 2017, the Office of Congresswoman Colleen Hanabusa will partner with the Hawaii Chapter of the American Immigration Lawyers Association, Hawai‘i Immigrant Justice Center at Legal Aid, Speaker Scott K. Saiki, and Volunteer Legal Services of Hawai‘i to hold a Naturalization Workshop at the Hawai‘i State Capitol.

 

All participants must be pre-screened lawful permanent residents.  Those interested should call the Hawai'i Immigrant Justice Center at Legal Aid at (808) 536-4302 on or before May 19, 2017.  The following restrictions apply:

 

  • Eligible lawful permanent residents will receive free legal help to complete the naturalization application. All participants must be pre-screened for eligibility before an appointment time will be scheduled with a pro bono attorney.
  • Participants are responsible for paying all fees and postage associated with the application.
  • Space is limited to the first 40 eligible applicants.

 

Congresswoman Hanabusa:  I look forward to working with the Hawaii Chapter of the American Immigration Lawyers Association, the Hawaii Immigrant Justice Center and Volunteer Legal Services of Hawaii on this significant community service project.  It is important that we, as citizens of a nation born of immigrants, continue to assist those legal permanent residents who choose to become U.S. citizens through the naturalization process.  I also want to thank Speaker Saiki and the Hawaii State Legislature for making the Hawaii State Capitol available to our group of volunteers on Saturday, June 3, 2017.
