With government crackdowns on immigrants, both undocumented and legal, dominating headlines, the fact that many immigrants are still successfully navigating the labyrinth can get lost in the shuffle. The USCIS announcement that over 45,000 people were sworn in as newly naturalized U.S. citizens as part of Constitution and Citizenship Day celebrations serves as a reminder that many noncitizens continue to win their cases.
The celebrations included over 260 naturalization ceremonies across the country, including special ceremonies at the U.S. Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs, the Highlands Ranch Library, the Colorado National Monument, and Fort Carson.
Congratulations and welcome to all the new U.S. citizens.
For those who have not yet become U.S. citizens but are considering filing an application to immigration, be sure to consult with a qualified immigration attorney.
