United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) will welcome more than 6,900 new U.S. citizens in over 130 naturalization ceremonies across the nation between September 17 and September 23, 2023, in celebration of Constitution Week and Citizenship Day. September 17 is Citizenship Day – an important reminder of the rights and freedoms of all Americans – including immigrants.
This is a momentous occasion for both the new citizens and the United States. It is a celebration of the values that make our country great, such as freedom, equality and opportunity. It is also a reminder that the United States is a nation of immigrants and that our country is stronger because of the diversity of its people.
The naturalization ceremony is the final step in the process of becoming a U.S. citizen. During the ceremony, new citizens will take the Oath of Allegiance to the United States, in which they pledge to support and defend the Constitution and the laws of the United States. They will also receive their certificate of citizenship, which is official proof of their new status.
The naturalization ceremony is a special occasion for #NewUSCitizens and their families. It is a time to celebrate their new citizenship and to reflect on the journey that led them to this point. It is also a time to look forward to the future and all of the opportunities that await them as U.S. citizens.
