Issue Brief: Latinos and Immigration

Vulfov, Robert; Smith, Raymond Arthur

This issue brief discusses immigration and Latino population growth in the United States as they relate to the naturalization process for Latino immigrants. The Pew Hispanic Center states that language, financial, and administrative barriers are the main reasons for legal residents neglecting to seek citizenship. The main components of the brief address the naturalization process and why Mexican immigrants are the largest group of immigrants who live in the United States illegally.
