Citizenship Day

Posted: Updated:

PASCO, Wash.—More than fifty people around the Tri-Cities area received help in becoming American citizens Saturday.

A group called OneAmerica puts on Citizenship Day a few times a year in various cities.  They partner with lawyers to assist eligible legal permanent residents to become active members in our community.

The goal is to send clients off with a completed citizenship application by the end of the session. 

OneAmerica employees say usually the biggest challenge for applicants is coming up with the funds to pay for the $670 application fee.
