Public Service Recognition Week 2010 on the National Mall
To celebrate PSRW, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) Director Alejandro Mayorkas administered the Oath of Allegiance to 25 candidates who became America’s newest citizens during a special naturalization ceremony on the National Mall.
“Our nation is a beacon of hope and opportunity for men and women from around the world who yearn to realize their potential and pursue their dreams. It is through the talents of all our citizens, from wherever they may come, that we as a nation remain at the forefront of innovation. We welcome today’s new citizens as they join and continue in this proud tradition.”
This year’s celebration recognizes innovation and opportunities in public service, and is open to the public. This naturalization ceremony is the highlight of activities USCIS has planned for PSRW to educate the public about citizenship and immigration and inspire them to choose the path of public service.
