This week, the New York Times reported on a spike in naturalization applications from Latino immigrants in Colorado and nationwide. Many applicants say they are motivated to become citizens in time for this year's presidential election, so they can vote against Donald Trump. Latinos, especially Mexicans, with permanent U.S. residency have historically lagged behind immigrants from other parts of the world when it comes to naturalization. Even though many Latinos are legally in the U.S., the majority never become citizens. Now, due to the upcoming presidential election, many Latinos are taking that final step. The naturalization process usually takes around five months, so applicants should be eligible to vote in elections this November.
