Educational Forum: Immigration -- Learning the Basics.
Immigration Info The U.S. immigration process can be complicated and confusing for immigrants as well as most Americans. To provide an understanding of the American immigration system, the League of Women Voters of San Joaquin County will be presenting the first in a series of education programs on our American immigration process on Saturday, April 29th beginning at 9:30 a.m.

The program will be held at the Health Plan of San Joaquin County Building, 7751 S Manthey Rd., French Camp, adjacent to the San Joaquin General Hospital. Free parking is available.

The first program, Immigration -- Learning the Basics, will provide an overview of the immigration process and will address the following issues and more:

  • What is the history of the immigration system?
  • What is the purpose of a green card and a visa, and the time frame to get them? What is the path to citizenship?
  • How long does it take to become a citizen and what does it cost?
  • What is the process for a family to go through the immigration process? Is it different than for an individual?
  • What is the vetting process?
  • What is the process for refugees and what about political asylum?

The purpose of the League of Women Voters is to promote voter registration and participation in government through education. This program is an education forum only. No immigration services will be available. The program is free and open to the public.

Coffee and refreshments will be served beginning at 9:30 a.m. and the program will take place from 10 a.m. until noon.

Presenters will include staff members from Catholic Charities Diocese and from the Sacramento office of the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (formerly the Immigration and Naturalization Services).

Come join us to learn more about our American immigration system. For more information, contact Susan Mora Loyko, smloyko@gmail.com
