Citizenship classes planned for Mac

To qualify for naturalization, candidates who are married to a U.S. citizen must establish at least three years of residency, coupled with at least 20 months of physical presence during the past five years. For candidates not married to a U.S. citizen, the requirements are five years of residency and 30 months of physical presence.

In either case, they must be at least 18 years of age. They must demonstrate speaking, reading and writing ability in English, a command of civics and history basics, good moral character and a willingness to swear allegiance to the United States. And they have to show they haven’t been out of the country for more than one year at any one period since coming to the U.S.

Pre-registration is required by May 29. There is a $10 textbook feel.

To register or get more information, contact Kane Ransom at or 503-472-4020, ext. 213.

Our local organization, UNIDOS Bridging Community, values its collaboration with Lutheran Community Services in co-sponsoring these citizenship classes! UNIDOS will provide the volunteer teachers and assistants for the classes.
We also thank McMinnville Cooperative Ministries for their enthusiastic support of this project.
It's great to see these three groups working together for the benefit of a stronger community. Thanks all!
