Motivation for Naturalization

Posted: 1380563588000
Classification: Immigration
Back in the mid- to late- 1800s, when many people did not read or write [English], what would the motivation be to apply for US naturalization? I assume that people were just happy to be someplace safe and be together. Why change your citizenship? Were there laws that were enforced?

Thank you for any help with this rather generic question.
