U.S. Sees Significant Increase in Naturalization for Immigrants

 Posted on December 08, 2022 in Immigration

In 2022 alone, over 900,000 naturalizations have occurred. While the Covid-19 pandemic temporarily slowed down the speed of naturalization and immigration in general, immigrants from nearly every country except China have seen a rebound in the rates of naturalization. Because of the many benefits that immigrants bring to American society, this is great news for both the naturalized immigrants and for Americans in general. 

In addition to increasing naturalizations, immigrants are getting more green cards, student visas, and tourist visas than ever. While it is true that the immigration process in America can be complex and difficult to navigate, you do not have to do it alone. Millions before you have done it, and you can do it, too. 

Student Immigrants Contribute Greatly to the American Economy

Immigrants who start off as students in American universities and who eventually naturalize and become American citizens are often among the most productive members of American society. A huge number of engineers, economists, statisticians, mathematicians, and scientists come from immigrant student populations, and international students often account for the majority of graduate students in these fields. 

Furthermore, a quarter of startup companies worth a billion or more dollars are founded by Americans who first arrived as international students. These companies provide enormous numbers of jobs, make America a leader in STEM fields, and drive the economy forward. Getting a job after you have been a student in an American university is often possible, and you may have more options for becoming a citizen once you have worked in America with a valuable college degree. 

There has hardly been a better time to come to America. If you are hoping to immigrate to America, bring a family member to America, or remove the conditions on your visa and become an American citizen, a Florida immigration attorney can help. While you are not required to have a lawyer during this process, studies suggest that immigrants who have the help of an attorney are more likely to become citizens, avoid deportation, and avoid mistakes that can jeopardize their visa.
