Celebrating Independence Day with Naturalization Ceremonies
Release Date: June 30, 2014
On July 4, Americans celebrate the day the Continental Congress adopted the Declaration of Independence in 1776. USCIS marks this occasion each year by holding special naturalization ceremonies across the country.
This year, we will welcome nearly 9,000 new citizens during more than 100 naturalization ceremonies between June 30 and July 4. A list of highlighted ceremonies is below.
We welcome you to share your ceremony experiences and photos via Twitter and other social media, using the hashtag #newUScitizen. You can also follow @USCIS on Twitter and Facebook.com/USCIS.
