There have been a multitude of state efforts to assist immigrants in integrating in the United States. State legislators have developed laws to help with immigrant naturalization such as supporting civic education classes. These classes will allow immigrants to pass their naturalizations exams and increase their changes of obtaining citizenship. Many states are determined to help immigrants assimilate in the United States and guide them on their journey to citizenship. They are utilizing necessary services to help immigrants gain access to all the resources they may require to help them with becoming citizens of the united States.
A fundamental step in this process is the incorporation of USCIS naturalization exams to high school civic curriculum requirements, a law that has been implemented by fifteen states. Twenty-seven states have also passed legislation that funds immigrant integration programs that advance immigrants’ English language skills. Funds have been allocated to these types of services in public school to help students achieve proficiency in not only English, but their native language as well. Moreover, USCIS will donate $20 million in funding for states and organizations to assist immigrants with their naturalization process as well as to encourage civil integration.
