Napolitano Holds Immigration Clinic
(BALDWIN PARK, CA) Yesterday, Rep. Grace F. Napolitano (D-El Monte) held a free immigration clinic with California State Senator Dr. Ed Hernandez (SD-22) and California Assemblywoman Blanca Rubio (AD-48) at St. John the Baptist Church in Baldwin Park to help guide people through the immigration and naturalization process. More than 150 people met with immigration experts and representatives from agencies at the annual event.
“Immigrants of all ethnic backgrounds, educational levels, and socioeconomic statuses have come to America for freedom and opportunity, and they continue to drive our nation forward,” Napolitano said. “It is critical that we respect their rights and protect their identities from notarios and others who seek to defraud them. We are grateful to the lawyers and experts who helped attendees better understand the immigration and naturalization process and to all of the volunteers who made the clinic possible.”
The following organizations provided help and guidance at the clinic:
- U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services
- Catholic Charities
- Legal Aid Foundation of Los Angeles
- LA Voice
- American Immigration Lawyers Association
- Mexican American Bar Association
- LA County Bar Association (LACBA)
- LA Law Library
