"New polling released today by the National Association of Latino Elected and Appointed Officials (NALEO) Educational Fund and Latino Decisions highlights the importance of citizenship and strategies to address barriers that Latino Legal Permanent Residents (LPRs) face in pursuing this very important goal. There are 3.8 million Latino LPRs eligible to become naturalized American citizens, this study presents a unique look at factors that can impede and facilitate their participation in the naturalization process. Latino LPRs express a strong interest in becoming fully incorporated into the American citizenry to improve their lives, and for the betterment of the larger Latino community.
