Francisca Molina had been an American citizen just a few minutes when she was inundated with sales pitches:

"Come take a photo with Donald Trump!"

"All Hillary information here!"

“Don’t forget to vote!”

She and thousands of freshly sworn-in citizens exited their naturalization ceremonies at the Los Angeles Convention Center on Tuesday to find a scene that went beyond the usual peddling of T-shirts, flowers and teddy bears.

Outside the center’s doors, backers of both presidential campaigns crowded around them, vying to get more registered voters for their party.
