SEEKING AUTHENTIC STORIES FROM U.S. NATURALIZED CITIZENS FOR A COLLECTION. Are you a naturalized citizen?

They have never known anything else, and therefore, have no way to compare with alternative ways of living. Naturalized citizens, as Dinesh D’Souza says, “vote with their feet.” They may have experienced poverty, persecution, possibly war, or sought a better life by way of education, a fair justice system, or greater opportunity.
