If I were a Mexican immigrant, I would most likely think that the immigration and naturalization process as described on the INS website was a very difficult process, it is also a quite expensive and long process. To become a United States citizen, the fees are quite steep. (US Citizenship and Immigration Services ) The naturalization process can take in excess of two years. The benefits that I would have outweigh the cost and wait. Almost every American has an ancestor that has immigrated from somewhere. Even some of the Native American tribes immigrated from Canada and Mexico. Without the United States, allowing people of all nationalities to immigrate this country would not be where it is today. Policies only favoring a certain type of immigrant would have left the United States at a deficit when it came to inventions. A person such as Levi Strauss, the inventor of blue jeans was born in Bavaria. Alexander Graham Bell, who invented the telephone, was born in Scotland.

Unformatted text preview: An application should be based on its merit, not someone’s social status, amount of money they have, or need. Political refugees should be offered asylum for a limited time, and offered the same opportunity to apply for naturalization. I do think that applicants that can prove that they are low income should get a discount on their application fees. Americans receive assistance with many application fees by providing documentation they are low income or destitute. Applications from certain countries should not have priority over other. Even though there are people from countries that are seeking refuge in the United States, because they are being treated unfairly should not take precedence. They should be offered temporary shelter with limited time coverage to begin their application process. (n.d.). Retrieved 7 14, 2011, from US Citizenship and Immigration Services :
