Immigrants Eager to Vote Won't Receive Citizenship

Summary: Many legal US immigrants have been doing every single step necessary to apply for citizenship. But with the huge flux of immigrants applying for citizenship before the US election, applications have piled high and many immigrants won't receive citizenship before the voting begins. This is a huge problem because many of these people say that they would vote for Hilary, giving her a large boost in votes. This is greatly unfair to both the candidates and the immigrants, especially since immigrants have played such a huge role in US history and about 13.3 percent of the US population are immigrants.

Relevance: This relates back to our US immigration unit and how immigrants play a huge role in American society even to this day.

Question: Is there a way to solve this problem before the election? What would you do if you were an immigrant in this position?

  1. I believe there isn't really a true solution to give the immigrants citizenship before the election. All they can do is apply as quickly as possible and just wait as long as the process usually takes in order to obtain citizenship. The only available solution is to speed up the process of checking and accepting applications, but more people with the job skill must be hired to look over the applications. All the immigrants can do is fill out the application, wait until their application is accepted to become a citizen, and then they would be able to vote in the next election.

  5. I don't think that there is any way to solve this problem because there's not enough time to approve immigrants' citizenship applications.

  7. I believe that there is no real solution to giving the immigrants citizenship and letting them into the US before the election. The best thing the immigrants can do right now is to apply and wait for the US to grant them citizenship. Many immigrants would like to come and be citizens of the US, but all their applications should be looked at and the best thing is that they would get citizenship before the election and the worst thing is that they would not get citizenship before the election.

  8. If I were an immigrant in this situation I would be kind of pissed off. It's unfair that I cannot vote while other people can, just because they live in the united states. I agree with Jeremy that immigrants waiting to enter the us won't be able to vote, though.

  10. I believe that there is no solution to giving the immigrants citizenship and letting them into the US before the election. What they should do is apply for citizenship. Many immigrants would like to come and be citizens of the US because of the opprotunites

  11. It is kind of devastating to their part since the results will take huge effect in their future endeavors. It's like robbing them of what they rightfully have. It's not even about who benefits from their vote, it's about them and their right to vote as part of the population of whoever the next president is going to serve. I think there's still huge amount of issues circulating around immigration in general and I hope it will be resolved as soon as possible.

  12. Their really is nothing that can be to stop this because the people in charge of immigration wont change anything. If I were an immigrant I would protest in order to at least try and put in pressure to the canidates and to come closer to citizenship

  14. I agree with Alex, there's nothing really much to do about this situation. If I was an immigrant i would just stay home and let whatever happens, happen.

  15. Even though it is unfair, there is not much immigrants can do about the situation except for apply for citizenship and hope for the best. The government can try to speed the process along and be as helpful as possible.

  16. I think it is very unfair, however the immigrants can't do much about it. They don't really have a say in what happens to them. I also don't think that they is nearly enough time to be able and prevent this from happening.

  17. This isn't very fair to those who have been here long enough to know what this country needs, but they still don't get any attention towards the needs that they have. I would be very concerned for my future in this country especially if Trump gets voted president of where I live.

  20. I don't think there's a way to solve this before the election because we are less than a month away, in order for immigrants to vote they need a lot of time to pass laws and all of that. If i was in that position id probably really disappointed especially if I've lived here for a while because whatever others chose would affect me since i live in this country. I believe its unfair for immigrants.
