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.

is fear mongering actually helping?
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 !
Funny isn't , Not! ..........So many people hate America and yet , cross the borders every single moment just to suffer like the rest of us I suppose ?
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

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 ?
