THE UNITED STATES NOW URGES ELIGIBLE JAMAICANS TO GAIN CITIZENSHIP!

Audrey Marks, Jamaica’s ambassador to the United States, says all eligible Jamaicans should ensure they become citizens of the United States in order to have all the privileges in the democratic process while they are residing in the United States.

She stated that many Jamaicans have been living in the US for decades and are not citizens, due to not wanting to give up their Jamaican passport. She assures that Jamaica recognises dual citizenship, So you can have both a Jamaican and a United States passport.

Marks states that in becoming a citizen, you’ll be able to participate in all areas of public life as a citizen of the United States which includes voting, and with that you can help to influence policy direction.

Jamaican Americans play multiple roles as public servants, health care providers, investors, consumers etc in the US. Survey shows that over one million Jamaicans and over three million people of Jamaican culture/background reside in the United States.

Jamaicans who attained citizenship and are involved in participating in policy making in the United States, are making a brighter future for their children and Jamaicans who hopes to one day become citizen and there is a need to continue strengthening the ties between the United States and Jamaica.

So Jamaican’s living in the United States need to straighten up themselves and become citizens, eligible Jamaicans of course. What are your thoughts?
