US Mexican immigrants / 64 percent have not pursued naturalization

Mexican immigrants living in the United States legally are slow to seek U.S. citizenship, results of a Pew study released Monday indicate.

Of the 5.4 million legal Mexican immigrants, 64 percent have not pursued naturalization. The 36 percent who have is about half the rate of legal immigrants from all other countries combined, the Pew Research Center in Washington said its analysis of U.S. Census Bureau data revealed.

Pew researchers said they found 61 percent of all immigrants and 68 percent of all non-Mexican immigrants sought naturalization in 2011. The overall rate also was about the same as for other non-Mexican Hispanic immigrants, Pew said.

Pew noted Mexicans are by far the largest group of immigrants in the United States illegally, accounting for 6.1 million (55 percent) of the estimated 11.1 million in the country as of 2011.
