USCIS (U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services) will welcome 17,800 new US citizens on the President’s Day. 148 naturalization ceremonies will be conducted across the country between February 14 and February 22.
Acting Director of USCIS, Lori Scialabba, said he is very proud that almost 18,000 immigrants will become citizens of US. New would-be citizens will take their Oaths of Allegiance on the Presidents Day. These new citizens the director stated, will help shape the country’s future. In the course of contributions that they make, and by selecting to naturalize in the USA, the nation of immigrants, the new citizens will strengthen the nation’s unique legacy.
The ‘Oath of Allegiance’ will be administered by Mr. Scialabba to 75 candidates, on Feb, 17, President’s Day during the naturalization ceremony, at the Jimmy Carter Presidential Library and Museum in Atlanta.
