|The latest data:
700,000 foreigners immigrated to the United States, and the Chinese ranked third.
According to the latest statistics released by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, 707 265 foreigners were granted U.S. citizenship in fiscal year 2017 (October 1, 2016 to September 30, 2017), down 6.08% from fiscal year 2016, the Times of India reported on September 19. Among the 707 265 people, 118 559 Mexicans, 50 802 Indians and 37 674 Chinese were in the top three.
"Mexicans, Indians and Chinese seem to be more fortunate at a time when the American dream of many immigrants is increasingly elusive," the Times of India said, noting that the number of "new Americans" from these three countries increased in fiscal year 2017, contrary to the overall decline in the number of new Americans in the United States.
Other major sources of New Americans are the Philippines, Dominica, Cuba and Vietnam.
According to the Department of Homeland Security, immigrants from North America and Asia account for 72.6% of the total number of New Americans.
According to the Times of India, immigration experts say foreigners eager to become American citizens are facing more obstacles nowadays.
The United States is currently conducting "extreme censorship" of applicants, and applications are being rejected for "weird reasons" dating back many years.
Reported that only green card holders can apply for naturalization in the United States, although they can live and work in the United States for a long time, but the uncertainty caused by the changing visa policy of the United States government and Washington's preference for more jobs for American citizens are prompting many green card holders to apply for American citizenship.
