Gunman kills 13 at NY state immigration center

Sad day for the US Immigrant community. A gunman opened fire on The American Civic Association a center where immigrants were taking a citizenship exam Friday in downtown Binghamton, killing 13 people before apparently committing suicide.

The American Civic Association helps immigrants in the Binghamton area with naturalization applications, according to U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services. The association describes itself as helping immigrants and refugees with counseling, resettlement, citizenship, family reunification and translators.

Our prayers with the victims’ families
