The U.S. Immigration System: 2017 Naturalizations
The naturalization process confers U.S. citizenship upon foreign citizens or nationals who have fulfilled the requirements established by the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA). After naturalization, foreign-born citizens enjoy nearly all of the same benefits, rights, and responsibilities that the Constitution protects for native-born U.S. citizens, including the right to vote. This graphic provides information for adults ages 18 and up who naturalized in Fiscal Year 2017; the graphic does not include information on persons under the age of 18 who derived citizenship from the naturalization of a parent.
