It's not unusual to see a small spike in naturalization applications ahead of a national
election, but this time it's more dramatic, said Louis DeSipio, University of California,
Irvine political scientist. “I think what we are seeing is a function of the election,"
DeSipio said, "but not every election leads to this sort of outcome. This election
so far at least has been very antagonistic toward immigrants, and that has spurred
a lot of interest in naturalization.”
