Assisting people in becoming citizens of the United States has been one of the most rewarding experiences Ive had since becoming a Member of Congress, Green said. This event gives us a chance to help our legal residents achieve their dream of becoming a U.S. citizen. We not only provide a service, but more importantly, we increase community awareness about the importance of U.S. citizenship.
