An information session on naturalization is being conducted by U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services in Tucson this Saturday, Sept. 19.

The event, held at the Tucson Field Office, is part of a larger initiative "to help immigrants better understand the process by which legal permanent residents or 'green card' holders apply for U.S. citizenship," a release said.

USCIS personnel discuss the naturalization process step-by-step, providing information about eligibility and residency requirements, application forms, fees, the background security check and processing times.

Participants can see sample questions from a new test that becomes mandatory Oct. 1. They'll receive an overview of U.S. history and civic principles, watch a mock naturalization interview, and learn about USCIS electronic services, including the on-line appointment system InfoPass.

Attendees are encouraged to reserve a seat ahead of time by sending an e-mail with their name to http://Tucson.Info">Tucson.Info@DHS.gov, or registering in person during normal office hours at the Tucson Field Office. Those with reservations will be seated first. Doors open at 9:30 a.m., with the first session at 10 a.m.

"USCIS is committed to helping immigrants in our community to obtain the benefits for which they qualify," said Tucson Field Office Director Al Gallman. "This information session is one way in which we can open our doors to help applicants understand the immigration process."

The Marana capital improvements improvements are expected to take years to complete as Marana finds the best plan of action to complete the projects and fund the improvements. Do you think this is a good idea?

The town of Marana is looking at ways to do capital improvements to the oldest neighborhoods in Marana. Over the next few months the town will survey older neighborhoods and see what amenities they need and form a plan to make sure neighborhoods have paved roads, sidewalks, adequate drainage, lighting and even pocket parks. “We want to make sure that every neighborhood has a base standard for infrastructure,” said Marana Town Manager Gilbert Davidson. The improvements are expected to take years to complete as Marana finds the best plan of action to complete the projects and fund the improvements. Do you think this is a good idea?

How do you feel about a potential memorial art project to honor our community’s bravest men and women?

During the Jan. 20 town council meeting, a vote was unanimously passed to look into the feasibility of a “Memorial Public Art Project,” at the request of Oro Valley resident Dick Eggerding to potentially be placed somewhere in the town to honor military veterans and first responders. Though no concrete plans were then ready to act on, there was a show of overwhelming support for such project from residents and staff alike during the council meeting. In an effort to poll to community at-large, The Explorer would like to know how you feel about a potential memorial art project to honor our community’s bravest men and women.
