    Fears of Trump drive immigrants to become citizens
    "There is fear of a Trump presidency," said Maria Ponce of iAmerica Action, a Washington-based immigrant rights group that is teaming up with other organizations to help those seeking citizenship — part of a national campaign called "Stand Up To Hate." They've sponsored naturalization workshops from Washington state to Nebraska and Massachusetts.

    Nationwide, naturalization applications are up 14 percent in the last six months of 2015 compared with the same period in 2014, according to the government.

      Only legal immigrants are eligible for naturalization, so if people are filing their naturalization paperwork it means they're here legally and have nothing to worry about.  It's the illegals who need to get a back up plan.

    Actually  an accountability to  the actual written laws of US. immigration  it's what's driving this  surge . Is it not ?    And why exactly shouldn't those who are here illegally  run to register  their illegal selves?   I actually hope it continues  and yet    , public opinion  lays waste to all  regulation , excuses all  law breakers these days ,  hey , the attitude of America today ;  Laws  , ? Who cares !

      Illegals can't  become citizens just by filling out some paperwork.  Only people who have green cards, certain visas, asylum seeker status, etc can apply for it.

    Even if you are here legally it is not just a matter for paper work.  It took more over ten years and $5000 just to get a green card. I have 2 more years before I can even apply for citizenship.

    In the mean time , because of our laws  , an illegal alien  can cross the border freely , unchecked , get housing , get  health care , get a job , get credit ,  get  a drivers license  , get an education , get a vote  . get financial  aid AND , can and  will complain about the paperwork  and  bureaucratic process .

    Welcome to America !

      Obama, budgeted to give each Central American illegal minor $17,613 that crosses the border this year. That's more than Americans get on Social Security, according to reports.  How is that suppose to make poor American minors and their families that are struggling feel? 

      $1.3 billion for illegal millennials
      $2.1 billion for refugees

      All the while we have Americans living in poverty, and many homeless including children.  Is it any wonder that there is a Trump phenomenon happening as people are awakening.  People who actually pay taxes would rather see most of that money poured out in Harlem (inner cities need the help), and I know Trump would...that's one of his visions to make Harlem a great place to live. 

      If, I was an African American, I would be very disappointed with Obama for doing as little as possible to help us.  While supporting black extremist groups.

      IMMIGRATION REFORM THAT WILL MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN
      https://www.donaldjtrump.com/positions/ … ion-reform

      When politicians talk about “immigration reform” they mean: amnesty, cheap labor and open borders. The Schumer-Rubio immigration bill was nothing more than a giveaway to the corporate patrons who run both parties...

        Those who elected an entirely un -Americanized  leader , Pres. Obama , should be ashamed of themselves for  how  OWO he is ,( one world order) .   Never before has the American voters been so slack in maturity , never before have  we been so P.C.in vetting a candidate .  You are getting exactly what you deserve .

          Can you please define "un-Americanized"?

            Not a good word, sorry ,Pres.  Obama has no love of one country , no patriotism ,no  American values or  desire for any of these .  He is a one world leader and his smug ego centricity and  attitude towards not only America  but in the very way that  he lectures the rest of the political world .  His ego places him consciously at the worlds podium  , not simply the American presidency !    He is not a patriot .

            He would far rather that he was elected king of the world .   I want a president who loves America .

              Wow, you just see what you want to see.  You have made statements like this before, and I have asked you to provide actual evidence before, and you never have.  In this short post, you stated that

              Obama doesn't love America
              Is not patriotic
              Possesses no American values
              Has no desire for any of the above
              Is a one world leader
              Is not a patriot
              Would like to be elected king of the world

              Yet, no substantive evidence is ever forthcoming.

              As far as being placed conspicuously at the world's podium, that is the case with any American president.  Soon, it will be someone else at the world's podium, representing America.

                There are some obvious facts conveniently ignored  by the naive left ,  Some would rather that   the other countries  not want Trump as our leader  for instance , than  have one that they can  exploit  in economic trade  deals , political strategies , nuclear proliferation , etc.   Just why do you think that many other countries don't want Trump for instance ?

                They fear him ,  Respect is created by  a certain level of fear .
                The open faucet of our southern border  immigration  will be the  next 9/11 similar  occurrence.
                Why do you think that  LEGALLY  immigrated American citizens  support controlling our borders , because they  paid their own way legally ,maybe ?
