Be More, Do More, Earn More!

U.S. citizenship correlates with higher earnings, as foreign-born workers earn only 83% of what native-born counterparts make. Naturalized citizens not only bridge this gap but also gain access to benefits and opportunities, such as, Social Security, Medicare, and eligibility for government jobs.
