In the wake of new immigration laws being passed by the US Congress, an NGO run by an Indian lawyer would be hosting a 'Citizenship Day' to make immigrants of Indian origin "aware" of the laws and procedures to get their citizenship.

"In light of the recent immigration laws being passed through US Congress, the need for immigrants to get their citizenship is a pressing concern for citizens and non-citizens alike," said Anu Peshawaria, a Supreme Court lawyer and state bonded immigration specialist, in a statement.

'Seva', Peshawaria's NGO, would be hosting a 'Citizenship Day' on July 1 in Fremont, California to "teach people US citizenship laws and US Customs and Immigration Services guidelines".

Harsh Chabra, an attorney of Immigration and Business Services, would also be present on the occasion.
