Citizenship Workshop in Stamford, CT

On Saturday, March 16 in the city of Stamford, Connecticut with the participation of an immigration official and a qualified lawyer in immigration processes, we held the workshop “Overcome your Fear of the Citizenship Exam”  The number of assistants at UCONN was 27 people, who lived a full simulation, in which they interacted with our Volunteers which had been previously prepared for this Workshop.

In the workshop, we worked on fundamental issues such as knowing what to expect on the day of the interview, the questions of Form N-400 and, similarly, the hundred Civic questions. Mira USA Volunteers served as immigration officers.

The workshop began with an introductory talk and the order of the day, continuing with the presentation of the Immigration agent. Once this was completed, the realistic simulation was carried out, working with groups separately.

Once the review and teamwork were completed, we proceeded to work individually with each person, seeking to experience in the most real way, what it would be to be in front of an immigration officer in the final interview.

At the end of the workshop, a qualification was given to each person, seeking to identify flaws that could be improved for the day someone has to present themselves in the real interview. The simulation was a great help, since after completing it, the migratory process lawyer was able to identify and help to answer the concerns and fears that the assistants had, allowing them to become familiar with the terminology and procedures that could be presented that day, as well as respond with confidence in the best possible way to an official.

The workshop was held from 10 am to 2:30 pm, where people from different parts of Connecticut and Westchester New York participated.
