This Land is Your Land, This Land is (Not) My Land, was written by a woman who emmigrated to the U.S. from Bosnia as a young girl. It’s sobering to think that many who come to the U.S. for refuge from terror, poverty and hopelessness in their homeland find conditions here in the U.S. to be intolerable as well.
It goes without saying that our President has only fueled the flames of hatred against immigrants and, I believe, all classes of people struggling to make a living, follow their non-Christian beliefs (and even Christian beliefs that espouse personal perspectives rather than condemning all those outside of one’s own), and get justice for the wrongs committed against them or security in their own communities.
I hope this article speaks to you as it did to me.

The Washington New Americans Program (WNA) connects immigrants and refugees in Washington State to the information and legal services needed to successfully naturalize and exercise their civic voice. In the interest of changing a flawed system, we also advocate to reduce the structural barriers that keep many from achieving U.S. citizenship.
WNA is a partnership between the State of Washington and OneAmerica, a non-profit advocacy organization dedicated to building power in immigrant and refugee communities. With the support of the American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA) and community organizations across Washington, we provide naturalization information and assistance with N-400 and I-912 forms. We organize approximately a dozen free citizenship application workshops around Washington State every year, and our affiliate organizations offer assistance in their offices year-round, by appointment.
