Becoming a Citizen: A Newcomer's Guide. 1.
Michael, Jean
A bilingual pamphlet containing practical law-related information for recent Russian Jewish immigrants to New York City, this document discusses the process of becoming a United States citizen. Following a very brief description of the Newcomer series, 10 questions are listed, each followed by an answer. Questions asked include how to obtain a green card; the difference between a refugee, a parolee, and an immigrant; rights and responsibilities of refugees; how to help additional family members come to the United States and responsibilities involved in bringing relatives to this country; when to apply for citizenship; how to apply for citizenship; the rights and responsibilities of a United States citizen; the rights of refugees when traveling outside the United States, and the documents necessary for travel once permanent residency is obtained. A final page, titled "Where to Go for Help," lists the addresses and phone numbers of the United States Immigration and Naturalization Service and the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society, Inc. (CBC)
