US Citizenship Rates Increase Under Trump
US Citizenship Rates
US citizenship rates have escalated in the face of Trump’s strict immigration policies. With plans to crack down on illegal immigration and reduce legal immigration to the United States, the Trump Administration has instilled fear among thousands of people who already live in the US. With this fear in the background, many people have decided to become American citizens, partly to assuage the anxiety regarding their immigration statuses. After President Trump was elected, the Sacramento field office of U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services witnessed a spike in the number of naturalization applications. The office currently represents 23 counties in California, and it received 4,674 naturalization applications from January to March of this year. From October to December 2016, it only received 3,557 applications. The numbers in California as a whole have increased tremendously. From January to March 2017, field offices throughout the state have received 64,580 applications. From July to September 2016, they only received 50,193 applications.
These numbers highlight the importance of US citizenship. After all, once an immigrant becomes a US citizen, it becomes nearly impossible to take that away. What has benefited numerous individuals is the number of resources available to immigrants who need advocates. People tend to forget that there are plenty of immigration clinics, advocacy groups, and legal services available to immigrants who need support. Over the past several months, we have seen the Trump administration on one end of the immigration debate and a plethora of immigration advocates on the other. These advocates are the ones protesting at courthouses, drafting local policies to protect immigrants, and speaking at immigration forums in order to have immigrants know their rights. At sanctuary cities throughout the country, there are policies that have been established so federal immigration officials cannot questions immigrants about their immigration statuses in schools. Judges and immigration lawyers throughout the US are speaking to the media to reassure immigrants of their rights and relieve their worries regarding immigration.
Yes, the Trump administration has taken a firm stance on immigration, and yes, people are getting deported. But, America is still unified. America is still protecting their immigrants. People throughout the country continue to assemble under the umbrella of immigration advocacy, and this shows America’s strength. This resembles the America we have always known and seek to know, and this will not change.

After initially having a very bad experience with one of their immigration consultants and after posting a negative review on Google I was immediately contacted by the Managing Director to reschedule another consultation to try and provide me with a more positive experience. I have been impressed by their attention to customer service as a result of this and I appreciate the initiative that they have taken to turn my negative experience into a positive one. My second consultation was a great experience, I spoke with Brian about my Canadian PR application and he was able to give me great advice and was extremely helpful. He answered all my questions and explained the process of how to apply and was very patient with me which I really appreciate.
Great law firm with great staff. My lawyer Rania did a great job for my Canadian work permit and my daughters study permit. You are great in your work. And my Para Legal officer Alicea, you are just amazing. They did not rest until my job was promptly and properly done. Always there to answer my calls, reply my emails promptly. She tried her best and the results were amazing. I recommend visa place if you need the best immigration job. Many thanks to Rania and Alicea.
Great firm on top of their game. Worked with us til the end to ensure my parents visa was approved and guided us along the way in a professional manor. Natalie is awesome. Majority of our communications were via email, but the responses were immediate. I would greatly recommend this firm. Thank you for all your hard work and help. My family and I do really appreciate it.
