Citizenship Applications in the U.S. Rise as Administration

Starting Oct. 1, 2016 to June 30, 783,330 legal permanent residents or green card holders filed applications, compared to 725,925 who filed during the same period last year. The surge in citizenship applications have been brought about by recent aggressive immigration policies by the Trump Administration.
Permanent residency can be revoked, and green card holders can be deported if they are convicted on charges such as aggravated felonies, drug trafficking and crimes of “moral turpitude,” which can be broadly defined. Each time a permanent resident leaves the United States, re-entry is at the discretion of an immigration official. Citizenship protects immigrants from deportation if they commit a crime, and gives them access to federal benefits and jobs that are restricted to citizens.
