The Path to U.S. Citizenship

How to become

a citizen

The County of Los Angeles proudly welcomes immigrants from all parts of the world, and values their many contributions that have enriched this country and preserved its legacy as a land of freedom and opportunity.

Deciding to become a citizen of the United States is one of the most important decisions in your life, demonstrating a real commitment to the U.S. and loyalty to its Constitution.

In return, you are rewarded with all the rights and privileges that are part of United States citizenship.

All County of Los Angeles Public Libraries can assist with locating material on citizenship and immigration. The County Library proudly hosts two US Pathways for New Americans Centers. These centers will provide additional information and resources to help in the citizenship and immigration process.
