Citizenship and Residency Renewals

Since the 2016 election, New Mexico has seen an unprecedented spike in citizenship applications, growing by over 50% in 2017 compared to 2015—the second-largest percentage increase in any state.

In response to this demand, we have greatly increased our citizenship services, helping more New Mexicans than ever gain safety from deportation, increased ability to travel, the ability to petition for visas for more family members, greater access to public benefits, and, perhaps most notably, the right to vote.

Are you a legal permanent resident?
