I was pleased to see your coverage of the naturalization process, through which U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services officers adjudicate applications for U.S. citizenship ("Naturalizing people like herself," Sept. 30).
What was not mentioned, however, is that the new citizen featured in the article, and other members of his family, all attended preparation classes offered through the Baltimore City Community College Citizenship Program, which aided in his case's positive outcome.
BCCC offers free classes for this purpose both on campus and at convenient neighborhood sites throughout the metropolitan area. During the BCCC program's 15-year existence, approximately 1,300 students have been naturalized, of whom we are all very proud.
