Ben Ndugga-Kabuye of the Black Alliance for Just Immigration explains why “Black people live in a world that doesn’t see them as human”.
Immigration is a topic that can inspire a number of different conversations. In this talk, Ben went on to explain some of the battles that people can face when living as an immigrant.
For example, a large number of immigrants are sometimes denied vital benefits.
In the US, when someone applies or petitions for immigrant benefits, the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) assesses eligibility. In some cases, part of that process includes collecting biographical information.
Until early 2017, form g-325a was used to assess biographical information. Today, applicants and petitions no longer have to complete this form when filing for immigrant benefits.
Although form g-325a is no longer used for immigration applications or petitions, understanding its previous uses can help people to understand the types of information that the USCIS can request to determine eligibility for certain immigrant benefits.
