A recent study by the University of Southern California (USC), shows discrimination and racial disparities towards black male and female immigrants, compared to White male and female immigrants.
Researchers at USC found many racial disparities in approximately 1.5 million applications that were filed to US Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) between 2014 to 2018.
Black immigrants are more often denied U.S citizenship compared to other ethnic and national groups in the United States and worldwide.
The data presented by USC researchers did not publicize details on the reasoning for racial disparities and denials behind every citizenship application denial.
USCIS mentioned in a statement that it, “does not consider race, nationality, or other demographic factors when making determinations related to applications for naturalization.”
