"We hope this can be a yearly event," adds Leyda Becker, International Communities Liaison for the City of Bowling Green, "this is an effort to recognize that our citizen base is becoming more diversified, many foreign-born immigrants and refugees are eligible to pursue naturalization and become active members of our community who want to exercise their rights."
The City of Bowling Green
has worked with the various community partners who have been actively involved with immigrants and refugees through Citizenship classes and helping to process applications for naturalization.
"The process of naturalization is not simple, the eligible applicant has to submit an application to USCIS that has a costly fee, pass a citizenship exam, complete an interview process and pass a thorough background check," explains Becker
who became a US Citizen in 2011.
The Reception for New Americans joins nationwide efforts to better integrate immigrants into American communities.
On November 21, 2014, President Obama established the White House Task Force on New Americans
that has launched an integration strategy for the federal government, including goals and recommended actions to build welcoming communities; strengthen existing pathways to naturalization and promote civic engagement; support the skill development, entrepreneurship, and protect new American workers; expand opportunities for linguistic integration and education; and strengthen federal immigrant and refugee integration infrastructure.
