NEW YORK, United States (CMC) — United States Congresswoman Yvette Clarke is urging Caribbean nationals who want to file immigration applications and petitions in the U.S. to submit them before Dec. 23, when several fees will increase.

“Citizenship confers enormous benefits, such as the right to vote, that allow people an opportunity to enjoy the full blessings of American life. It relieves and protects those lacking citizenship status, resident foreign nationals, from the fear that any interaction with the law enforcement officials or the court system could result in deportation proceedings and a forced separation from loved ones,” said Clarke, the daughter of the Jamaican born Councillor Dr. Una Clarke.

“Citizenship makes it possible to fully enjoy the fruits of one’s labor. As the daughter of parents who came to the United States from the nation of Jamaica and the representative of a community that includes immigrants from around the world, I am hopeful that individuals who are eligible to apply for citizenship will complete the required paperwork and submit their forms before fees increase on December 23.”

She said that her staff stands ready to assist interested individuals by inquiring about the status of pending applications as well as provide references to local organizations that assist in completing the application process and paperwork.
