This month, we focus on immigration for CUNY TV’s show highlighting the best and brightest of the CUNY system, “Study With the Best.” First is a profile of Citizenship Now!, a free program for all New Yorkers to help them with questions about applying to be a citizen. We profile Henry Lee, who was born in China, and was a forensic scientist on the O.J. Simpson trial (among many other famous trials - JonBenet Ramsey, etc), and runs a forensic science institute in Connecticut. We also profile a swimmer from East Germany who immigrated here, a NYC Service Fellow originally from the Dominican Republic, and the English Language Institute of Queens College.
