    Naturalization Rates among IRCA Immigrants:A 2009 Update

    Nearly 2.7 million persons became LPRs under IRCA, including 1.6 million pre-1982s and 1.1 million SAWs. By the end of 2009, 1.1 million IRCA immigrants had naturalized. The data in Table 1 show that immigrants who obtained LPR status through IRCA provisions had lower rates of naturalization than immigrants who obtained status through other provisions (see Table 1). The naturalization rate was 53 percent for pre-1982s, compared to 58 percent for other immigrants who obtained status in 1989-1991 and 59 percent for other immigrants who obtained status in 1979-1981. The naturalization rate was 34 percent for SAWs, compared to 58 percent for other immigrants who obtained status in 1990-1992.
