Release Date

On Feb. 17, we will celebrate Presidents Day to honor the birth of our nation’s first president, George Washington, and all presidents who have led this country. USCIS marks this occasion each year by holding special naturalization ceremonies across the country.

This year, we will welcome approximately 17,800 new citizens during 148 naturalization ceremonies between Feb. 14 and 22, 2014. A list of highlighted ceremonies is below.

This year, we’ve added something new to our Presidents Day celebration: We welcome you to share your ceremony experiences and photos via Twitter, using the hashtag #newUScitizen. You can also follow us @USCIS on Twitter and Facebook.com/USCIS.
