  • National Autonomous University of Mexico - Texas, offering a course in how to become a U.S. citizen.
  • UNAM’s status as a non-profit prevents it from offering consultation on anyone’s immigration status.
  • A satellite branch of a Mexican university in South Texas is offering a course in how to become a U.S. citizen.

    According to KENS, the San Antonio branch of the Mexico City-based National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM) plans to begin the course as soon as next week.

    "Midway through the course, students will also undergo a mock interview with an inspector from the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services "   

    The 30-hour course, taught by bilingual professionals from the school, will include lessons on American history and current events, civics, reading, and writing.

    Midway through the course, students will also undergo a mock interview with an inspector from the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS).

    The USCIS inspector is also a naturalized American citizen.

    “We work with an inspector who’s been through the process and is now part of the system. That’s going to be greatly helpful to the students—that they have someone who has seen how it works,” UNAM spokesman Jake Pacheco told Campus Reform.

    Pacheco emphasized that UNAM’s status as a non-profit prevents it from offering consultation on anyone’s immigration status; all it can do, he said, is educate.

    The school also offers courses in English as a second language, Spanish, French, and various subjects relating to the United States and Mexico.

    The school’s website declares that its mission is to support “the success of Mexicans in the United States through the development of linguistic and cultural competencies” and “bi-national understanding and integration.”

    The course, which will be taught weekly on Tuesdays from 6-9 p.m., will be available from February 11 through April 15 and will cost $110.
