Mexican-Americans often reluctant to apply for citizenship

Many immigrants in California are of Hispanic descent.  While there are 8.8 million legal permanent residents that the government estimates would be eligible for citizenship in the United States, only 46 percent of the Latino community has taken that step towards citizenship.  For other legal immigrants the percentage is listed at 71 percent. 

Immigrants in California may soon be allowed to legally drive

Life may be easier for a number of California immigrants if a bill sent to Governor Jerry Brown is signed into law. The bill forwarded back on September 12th would allow immigrants in California to obtain a driver's license. This is only one of a number of measures proposed that might help strengthen the rights of immigrants in California.

California considers allowing permanent residents on juries

One of the benefits of United States citizenship is the right to sit on a jury.  As the law currently stands, however, immigrants are not even entitled to a jury by his or her peers.  Jury duty is currently restricted only to U.S. citizens.
