  Are There Differences in Registration and Voting Behavior Between Naturalized and Native-born Americans?
Naturalized citizens from countries without the right to vote or from countries with one-party states might be more highly motivated to participate in the political process than native-born citizens who have had access to this right from birth.
Among naturalized citizens race did not seem to matter, perhaps because race does not have the same social connotations in the countries of origin of naturalized citizens as it does in the U.S. This analysis provides strong evidence of the importance of simultaneously controlling for several factors that are related to voting and registration behavior.
Citizens born abroad in Europe and in Asia are 30 to 40 percent less likely to vote than those born in the U.S. While socioeconomic factors are prominent determinants of voting behavior among the native-born population, these factors are less important among the naturalized population.

 Naturalization - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In law, naturalization is the act whereby a person voluntarily and actively acquires a nationality which is not his or her nationality at birth.
Naturalization is most associated with economic migrants or refugees who have immigrated to a country and resided there as an alien, and who have voluntarily chosen to become a citizen of that country after meeting specific requirements.
In general, basic requirements for naturalization are that the applicant hold a legal status as a full-time resident for a minimum period of time and that the applicant promise to obey and uphold that country's laws, to which an oath or pledge of allegiance is sometimes added.

 Citizenship
It is absurd to argue that naturalized citizens are inherently incapable of understanding the rule of law or of faithfully executing the law.
If a naturalized citizen could not convince the voters that he or she understood and would faithfully execute our laws, then he or she would not be elected President even if allowed to run.
A presidential candidate does not have to be naturalized to be unqualified, and candidates who are naturalized citizens would undoubtedly face an extra burden of proof with voters and therefore be even less likely to be elected, whether qualified or not, than natural born candidates.

 CRS/LII Annotated Constitution Article I
The only difference drawn by the Constitution is that only the ‘natural born’ citizen is eligible to be President.”1168 The failure of the statute, the Court held, was that it impermissibly distinguished between native–born and naturalized citizens, denying the latter the equal protection of the laws.
Bellei,1172 the Court refused to extend this holding to persons statutorily naturalized at birth abroad because one of their parents was a citizen and similarly refused to apply Schneider.
