Trump and the Spike in Latinos Seeking Citizenship

Donald Trump Sparks Surge of Latinos Seeking Citizenship (Tina Nguyen) from Vanity Fair
"... it appears the anti-immigration billionaire is not just turning out people who would support him—he’s also inspiring hundreds of thousands of Latino residents to apply for citizenship so they can vote against him come November. Immigration advocates tell The New York Times that they’ve witnessed a steady uptick in naturalization applications in 2015 from the previous year, and believe they could likely process nearly a million applications by November 2016. ... The rush for citizenship is much more visible in Latino-heavy swing states like Nevada and Florida, and much higher among the 2.7 million Mexicans eligible for citizenship."
