Pablo Varela, a native of Mexico, became a U.S. citizen on November 1, 2013, and voted in his first election in March. When asked why he wanted to become a U.S. citizen, Mr. Varela responded, “I wanted to be able to vote. It’s important for me because I have lived here many many years with my wife, Virginia.
