US Launches Website for New Immigrants


The U.S. government has launched a new website designed to help new immigrants find information about federal government resources.

The new site, welcometousa.gov, is an initiative of the interagency Task Force on New Americans established by President Bush in 2006.

The website provides information on how to become a U.S. citizen, how to get a driver's license, and ways for new immigrants to find employment. Another objective of the website is to encourage immigrants and native-born Americans to engage in volunteer activities.

Most of the website is in English, but it includes links to new immigration guides in 11 languages, including Chinese, Korean, Haitian Creole, Spanish, French, Russian, Vietnamese and Arabic.
