    USCIS to Naturalize 15,000 New Citizens During Independence Day Holiday

    USCIS to Naturalize 15,000 New Citizens During Independence Day Holiday

    Citizenship candidates take the Oath at public parks and historic landmarks nationwide.

    Release Date: June 29, 2017

    WASHINGTON— U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) will celebrate the 241st anniversary of the Declaration of Independence, and our nation’s birthday, by welcoming nearly 15,000 new U.S. citizens during more than 65 Independence Day-themed naturalization ceremonies across the country this year.

    “July Fourth marks the birth of our country, and for 15,000 people, it marks the birth of a new chapter as American citizens,” USCIS Acting Director James McCament said. “These new members of our community will add to the diverse fabric of our nation and will now be able to enjoy the rights, privileges, and responsibilities of U.S. citizenship.”

    USCIS’ Independence Day activities this year will feature a naturalization ceremony at the National World War II Museum in New Orleans, Louisiana, on July 3. During this event, McCament will administer the Oath of Allegiance and deliver congratulatory remarks to 49 new Americans. Follow us on Facebook to view a live stream of this ceremony.

    Other ceremonies include events at:

    • Congaree National Park in Hopkins, South Carolina, on July 3.
    • Saratoga National Historic Park in Stillwater, New York, on July 4.
    • Calvin Coolidge Homestead in Plymouth, Vermont, on July 4.
    • Saguaro National Park West in Tucson, Arizona, on July 4.
    • Thomas Jefferson’s Monticello in Charlottesville, Virginia, on July 4.
    • Battleship New Jersey in Camden, New Jersey, on July 4. Follow us on Facebook to view a live stream of this ceremony.
    • George Washington’s Mount Vernon in Mount Vernon, Virginia, on July 4.


    To view a complete list of 2017 Independence Day-themed naturalization ceremonies, please visit uscis.gov/news.

    We invite new citizens and their families and friends to share their experiences and photos from the ceremonies on social media using the hashtags #newUScitizen and #July4th.

    USCIS is committed to promoting awareness and understanding of citizenship. We offer a variety of free citizenship preparation resources for applicants and teachers, including materials like the Establishing Independence (PDF, 2.41 MB) lesson plan, in our Citizenship Resource Center. Immigrant-serving organizations can register to receive a free Civics and Citizenship Toolkit to help permanent residents prepare for naturalization.

    The importance of the Declaration of Independence and Independence Day in the United States is reflected in several places on the naturalization test.

    Prospective citizens may see them in six different questions on the civics test, including, “What did the Declaration of Independence do?” and “When do we celebrate Independence Day?”

    To help applicants practice for the civics test, we recently launched our first official mobile app for the public, USCIS: Civics Test Study Tools, which is currently available for download in the Google Play and iTunes stores. In addition to being the only official USCIS Civics Test application, the app keeps old tests for review, has a game to challenge your civics knowledge, and lists all 100 questions and answers that could be asked in the actual civics test.

    For more information on USCIS and its programs, please visit www.uscis.gov or follow us on Twitter (@uscis), YouTube (/uscis), Facebook (/uscis), and Instagram (@uscis).

    Trump said he was going to get rid of all of the illegal aliens.
    He just didn't say he was going to make them all citizens.

    These aren't illegal aliens being naturalized, they're legal immigrants. The US Congress has been issuing over 1,000,000 green cards a year for Legal Permanent Residence for over 2 decades, since the miid 1990's when they doubled the number during the Clinton Administration. Under our laws, if and when green card holders want to become US citizens and meet the qualifications to become US citizens, our laws allow for that. Any changes to that set of laws would be a matter for the US Congress, not the President.

    Way too many. The Tom Cotton RAISE Act would cut it in half is my understanding, but still too many.

    We need a 10 to 20 Year Moratorium on All Immigration. And we need it now.

    Yeah, it's the numbers. Our Congress has totally sold US out with these outrageous immigration numbers.
