Biden Admin Rolls Out 'Unprecedented' Campaign to Add New US Citizens; Biden to Push Millions of Immigrants to Apply for US Citizenship

Biden Admin Rolls Out 'Unprecedented' Campaign to Add New US Citizens:
President Joe Biden is launching an “unprecedented” attempt to encourage more immigrants to apply for U.S. citizenship, a U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services official said.
CNN first reported Friday morning on what it dubbed an “unprecedented effort” regarding the new initiative. “USCIS remains committed to empowering immigrants to pursue citizenship along with the rights and opportunities that come with it,” USCIS Acting Director Tracy Renaud told CNN in a statement.
“There is no greater testament to the strength of America than our willingness to encourage others to join us as U.S. citizens as we work together to build a more perfect union,” she added.
The report also included remarks from Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas regarding immigrants applying for citizenship.
“Becoming a United States citizen is a tremendous privilege,” Mayorkas said. --->READ MORE HERE
Biden to push millions of immigrants to apply for US citizenship:
The Biden administration launched a government-wide effort aimed at encouraging millions of immigrants to apply to become U.S. citizens, the Department of Homeland Security announced Friday.
Officials at its U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services agency debuted an inter-agency plan to make the 9 million lawful permanent residents who may be eligible to apply for citizenship aware and help them do so. The announcement was timed for the Fourth of July, when the United States celebrates its independence.
"New citizens, strengthened with the power and responsibilities that American citizenship brings, make our Nation better," DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas said in a press release. "This strategy will ensure that aspiring citizens are able to pursue naturalization through a clear and coordinated process."
The new move stems from President Joe Biden’s executive order earlier this year that called for the U.S. government to come up with and implement “welcoming strategies that promote inclusion, and citizenship.” --->READ MORE HERE
