CASA de Maryland helps green-card holders become citizens. More than 210,000 green-card holders live in Maryland and the greater District of Columbia area. Since 2011, CASA de Maryland has partnered with multiple financial and nonprofit institutions to boost naturalization rates among the region’s green-card holders. Every year, CASA helps more than 1,200 people from over 50 countries of origin apply for citizenship and 95 percent of them become citizens. CASA provides a full variety of services that lawful permanent residents need to have a successful application, from in-house immigration attorneys to citizenship classes, financial education, mentoring, and translation services. With the current federal administration now threatening to prevent immigrants who might require public assistance from obtaining green cards, CASA is leading advocacy efforts to prevent implementation of this new rule.
