Fourth of July Weekend Naturalization Ceremonies

What does Independence Day mean to you? For 24,000 individuals this year, it means United States citizenship.

Between June 27th and July 4th, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services is holding 350 naturalization ceremonies to welcome new citizens to the United States. Not all of these ceremonies will be held on U.S. soil. Eight will be held overseas for members of the armed forces in Baghdad, Kabul, and Kuwait.

Interested in seeing a naturalization ceremony? Click here to see live streaming TODAY of a ceremony in San Diego. The ceremony will take place at 9:45 am PDT (that's 11:45 CDT).

Visit the USCIS website for more information about these ceremonies, naturalization, and other immigration topics.

I didn't realise that these sort of ceremonies took place on 4th July. A very special day for many!
