Welcome, New Americans



Share with friends

An American dream came true for 827 new United States citizens. At the monthly naturalization ceremony, citizens from five different continents and 49 different countries took the oath, pledged to the flag and are now full-fledged Americans.

A majority of these new Americans came from Mexico at 511. They also came from Armenia, Fiji, China, India and St. Kitts-Nevis to name a few.

GV Wire spoke with a few to gauge their thoughts on why they applied for citizenship and what being an American means to them.

Watch the video to see the sights and sounds, and here from many grateful new patriots.
