SAN ANTONIO -- A new survey shows giving many illegal immigrants a path to citizenship, doesn't mean they'll take it.
San Antonio Mayor Julian Castro testified before Congress Tuesday as lawmakers try to figure out how to get a handle on illegal immigration.
"Create a path to citizenship to bring the estimated 11 million undocumented immigrants in this country out of the shadows and into the full light of the American dream," Castro told Congress.
One of the most controversial aspects of the plan is the proposed path to citizenship. But that doesn't mean everyone who could be eligible will become a U.S. Citizen. A new survey from Pew Research suggests, without fear of deportation, many may choose not to become U.S. citizens.
Nearly two-thirds of legal immigrants from Mexico who are already eligible to become citizens here aren't. When asked why, more than 25-percent said English was problem. Nearly 20-percent said they haven't become citizens because of the cost.CLICK HERE
