Celebrating Presidents Day with Naturalization Ceremonies
On February 15, we celebrate Presidents Day to honor the birth of our nation’s first president, George Washington, and all presidents who have led this country.
Each year, USCIS marks this holiday with naturalization ceremonies across the country. This year, we will welcome nearly 20,000 new citizens in more than 180 naturalization ceremonies between February 12 and 22. A list of highlighted ceremonies is below.
We encourage you to share your experiences and photos from naturalization ceremonies through Twitter and other social media, using the hashtag #newUScitizen. You can also follow @USCIS on Twitter and facebook.com/uscis.
