CSII provides new state-by-state projections of how many U.S. citizens (of voting age) live with unauthorized family members who would be eligible for DAPA under the president’s plan—we call them "DAPA-affected voters".
The report demonstrates how the growing electoral impact of DAPA-affected voters could play a decisive role in key battleground states in the 2016 elections and beyond.

"Recent research, including Nurturing Naturalization report (2013), has suggested that the high fees to naturalize may serve as an impediment to Legal Permanent Residents (LPRs) seeking citizenship.
To understand what fee changes might mean going forward, it would be useful to have a more detailed profile of those eligible to naturalize, including by income, education and English language ability - information not readily available in Office of Immigration Statistics data.
NPNA commissioned this research (released in January 2015) which aims to help policymakers, advocates, and service providers understand more clearly this pool of potential U.S. citizens."
