Citizen Pinoy is a public service program that serves the need of our Filipino audiences for information on the various possibilities, issues, and problems of immigration.

Annually, 45,000 Filipinos move to the United States leaving behind their families and loved ones.  CITIZEN PINOY takes part in reuniting these immigrants with their loved ones the fastest way possible, through stories learned from our guests and guidance from our immigration expert.

CITIZEN PINOY is hosted by leading immigration attorney, Michael J. Gurfinkel who is very experienced and well-informed on laws, events, and issues confronting Filipinos in the USA.

Co-hosting the program is veteran news anchor Gel Santos-Relos who, for the last two decades, has won the admiration and respect of Filipino viewers via her many public service programs on ABS-CBN.

Each episode of CITIZEN PINOY is filled with heart-wrenching and heart-warming stories of separation, sacrifice and salvation.  Ultimately families are reunited with their loved ones through the assistance and expertise of Atty. Gurfinkel.
The program is taped before a fully-packed live studio audience who participate by asking their immigration questions to the attorney.  E-mailed questions are read and answered as well.

Across the globe, The Filipino Channel has more than two million viewers daily.

CITIZEN PINOY airs nationwide in the United States on TFC  (The Filipino Channel) on Sundays at 6:00 PM (PST) with replays on Tuesdays at 11:00 PM.  CITIZEN PINOY airs across the North American continent and also in Asia, Australia, Europe, and the Middle East.
