In 2018, Homeland Security reached a five-year high in citizenship application approvals.

It also swore in more immigrants as naturalized citizens according to a new statistical report released on the night of July 26, 2019.

These numbers contradict criticism from Democratic officials who claim that there are backlogs at the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services. The Homeland Security branch handles all legal immigration matters.

The chair of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus, Congressman Joaquin Castro, said that this supposed backlog is part of “President Trump’s anti-immigrant agenda.”

According to The Washington Times, the backlog in citizenship applications began during the end of the Obama administration. Yet, nobody complained about this when Obama was in office.

However, Democrats might be complaining now after new evidence has shown that migrants bloc vote for their party.

Beto O’Rourke’s surprising performance in Texas demonstrates how demographic shift has made states like Texas more competitive for Democrats.
