COMMON MYTHS ABOUT IMMIGRATION AND NATURALIZATION 

Many people have dreams of immigrating to the United States. However, immigration law is still widely misunderstood. Here are some common myths about immigration and naturalization that you shouldn’t believe.
  • If I marry a U.S. citizen, I can become a citizen automatically. It is true that marrying a U.S. citizen can simplify the immigration process. However, you won’t just become a citizen as soon as you marry a U.S. citizen. You still have to go through the proper channels, including applying for naturalization and passing a citizenship test.
  • Immigrants steal jobs from Americans. Unfortunately, many people still believe that immigrants come to the U.S. just to steal jobs from Americans. However, this is usually not the case. Many immigrants actually increase job creation through entrepreneurship, innovation and increased production.
  • I’m charged with a crime, I will get deported. This is generally not always the case. Whether or not you get deported will depend on your immigration status and the crime. If you’re in the country illegally, any criminal conviction can get you deported. If you’re a lawful permanent resident, on the other hand, you will likely only be deported of an aggravated felony.
  • Immigrants bring more crime. This is another misconception some people have about immigrants. The reality is that many immigrants are not likely to commit crimes because they want to become a citizen and don’t want to risk deportation.
  • Immigrants don’t pay taxes. Although many immigrants don’t benefit from assistance programs, they still have to pay their fair share of taxes. They get taxes withheld from their paychecks and pay sales and property taxes.
  • Most immigrants don’t want to become citizens. This simply isn’t true. The majority of immigrants do want to become citizens, but the path to get there is not so easy. They have to pass background checks, prove that they have lived in the country for at least five years and meet other requirements. It often takes years for immigrants to become citizens.
  • Immigrants abuse the welfare system. Some people are still under the impression that immigrants take advantage of welfare. The truth is that welfare is more difficult for immigrants to obtain, so very few are on it. In fact, U.S. citizens are more likely to be on welfare than immigrants.
