Catholic Charities, Immigration and the USCCB

Catholic Charity Helps Immigrants Become Citizens

Catholic Charities says it is expanding efforts to help immigrants become citizens.

The organization held a naturalization workshop Saturday in Wilmington attended by 27 families.

Catholic Charities says the workshop was made possible through a $10,000 grant from the Catholic Legal Immigration Network Inc. which will also be used to expanding outreach in Delaware and on Maryland's Eastern Shore.

The Catholic Legal Immigration Network was started in 1988 by the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, who have been calling on Congress reform the immigration system.

Catholic Charities spokeswoman Paula Savini says the agency's mission is to help naturalize immigrants so they can hold jobs with confidence and live in security.
