Lucio Delgado, from Iguala, Guerrero, said he received a letter informing him that he 'failed to successfully pass the reading test' which demonstrated that he lacked 'the educational skills to be considered for naturalization'

A blind Mexican man living in Chicago was denied naturalization to become an American Citizen because he was unable to read a sentence in English. 

Lucio Delgado, from Iguala, Guerrero, took to Facebook last week to share that a letter he received informed him that he 'failed to successfully pass the reading test' which demonstrated that he lacked 'the educational skills to be considered for naturalization.' 

The 23-year-old, who is legally blind and uses a white cane to get around, added that he provided evidence to the US Citizenship and Immigration Services to show that he was visually impaired.  

Delgado says that agents who took his case knew that the state of Illinois had not provided him with the resources in order to complete the reading portion of the test. 

He also suggests that those same agents may have even forgotten to update his file to show that he would be omitted from the reading portion of the test
