DON’T GET DEPORTED: Mexican Ambassador Prompts Immigrants to Apply for U.S. Citizenship Before Trump is in Office

These latinos are dramatic. Are they not? Trump doesn’t want to deport the contributing immigrants who are taking the LEGAL steps to become citizens. He wants all the thugs and criminals who should not be here OUT!

The Mexican ambassador to the United States is urging more Mexican citizens living abroad to apply for U.S. citizenship, ahead of President-elect Donald Trump‘s administration.

Ambassador Carlos Sada Solana told Mexican state news agency Notimex Tuesday that applying for citizenship could be an important defense against deportation and other actions if Trump changes U.S. immigration policies.

“It’s one of the very important protection actions to become citizens, because then they’re no longer subject to deportation processes and on the other hand, they don’t lose Mexican citizenship,” he told Notimex.

Sada said the problem was that many immigrants with legal status and eligibility for citizenship choose not to apply. The top reasons he cited were not considering U.S. citizenship important or necessary, plans to leave the U.S., not speaking English and a lack of information about the process.
