Many New Naturalized Citizens Are Hispanic

WASHINGTON (AP) - More than a million people became naturalized
citizens of the U.S. last year, and nearly half of them were
Hispanic.
In fact, the number of naturalized Hispanic citizens more than
doubled in 2008 from the previous year.
A Hispanic advocacy group says it shows that Latinos are eager
to demonstrate their commitment to America by becoming full-fledged
Americans.
Mexico leads the countries providing new Hispanic citizens,
followed by Cuba, El Salvador, Nicaragua and Guatemala.
And where do most of them live? California and Florida.
