UPDATE: Explore American Immigration Council’ interactive map to get more comprehensive information on U.S. immigration data and its impact! 

The American Immigration Council (AIC) has released all fifty states and the District of Columbia, for a total of fifty-one updated state-by-state fact sheets highlighting immigration data and facts. These fact sheets highlight the demographic and economic impact of Immigrants in each state.

With national immigration policy being discussed, we thought that it would be a good time to provide some statistics on the Immigrant population in the United States as provided by this AIC research. Once a week we will be posting a blog with information on three states at a time. This week we will highlight; West Virginia, Wisconsin and Wyoming!

You can check USCIS (United States Citizenship and Immigration Services) processing times at any time online using the link below, it is on their web site. You will need to select your form number, next select the form category, and last select the office processing your case and they will display a processing time. USCIS has made processing times easier to understand and provides a more realistic date range. 

Check Case Processing Times 

The processing time range is how long it takes for USCIS to process your type of case from the date they received it. USCIS processes cases in the order they receive them, and they normally update this information monthly. The estimated time range displayed is based on data captured over the last two months. 

On the USCIS’s Website, webpage, “Citizenship Resource Center”, they have published the U.S. Naturalization Statistics for Fiscal Year 2023! This web-based report is made up of graphs and charts explaining U.S. naturalization patterns in statistical forms! In the last ten years, we as a country have welcomed more than 7.7 million naturalized citizens into this country. 

For further details please review the USCIS Webpage, “FY 2023 Naturalization Statistics”.
