Press Release

(Baldwin Park, CA) Yesterday, Rep. Grace F. Napolitano (CA-32) hosted a free immigration fair at St. John the Baptist Catholic Church in Baldwin Park to help guide people through the immigration and naturalization process. More than 300 people met with immigration experts and representatives from federal agencies.

“America is a nation of immigrants. It is our past, our present and our future. Immigrants have made our country prosperous, the envy of all,” Napolitano said. “If you work hard, play by the rules, and successfully make it through the citizenship process, you can join the long line of Americans who immigrated here and helped make this country great.”

Napolitano was unfortunately not able to attend the fair due to ongoing budget negotiations in Washington. The following service organizations provided help and guidance at the fair:

·        US Citizenship and Immigration Services

·        605 Citizenship Project

·        County of Los Angeles Dept. of Consumer Affairs

·        Catholic Charities of Los Angeles
