On March 3rd, 2016, the law office of Yasser F. Sanchez joined La Libre Initiative to create a much needed citizenship fair in Mesa, Arizona. Yasser F. Sanchez worked with Matthew E. Brown, State Director of La Libre Arizona, to create a citizenship workshop to which over eight hundred people attended. More than one hundred citizenship applications were initiated at the event. In order to be able to help such a large group, Sanchez and Brown recruited and trained over fifty unpaid volunteers to assist legal residents in filling out their applications. In addition, Juan Moran, USCIS community liaison, held a two-hour question and answer period on the process of becoming a citizen.
Upon entry to the event, Moran remarked, “We have never had such a large event in Mesa. This is amazing.”
Brother Sanchez is a graduate of Brigham Young University’s J. Reuben Clark Law School. His practice is based solely on immigration and naturalization law.
Regarding his choice to partner up with La Libre, Sanchez states, “I wanted to work with a group that truly helped the Latino community. I saw the difference that La Libre was making in our community, teaching limited government, self-help, conservative principles and felt that I needed be a part of it.”
Sanchez believes that events like this one lead to people “learning how to fish,” as he puts it. “I believe that the Gospel teaches us to help our fellow man. It is even better when those who have been blessed teach members of our community how they can help themselves.”
