Fourth of July is the day in which Americans celebrate the official birth of our nation. One way the USCIS is celebrating is through the naturalization of 15,000 new American citizens. These naturalization ceremonies will take place in over 65 different ceremonies across the United States at various landmarks.
Though not all 65 ceremonies will take place on the Fourth of July, they are taking place within the week. There were even ceremonies taking place in United States territories such in the U.S. Virgin Islands on June 29, Puerto Rice on July 6, as well as two separate ceremonies in Guam on July 3. In our area, ceremonies were held at Battleship New Jersey in Camden on July 4, Independence National Historical Park in Philadelphia on July 4, and at the New York Public Library in Manhattan on June 30. The landmarks in which these ceremonies are taking place include national parks, museums, various battleships, and the preserved homes of historical people.
Candidates for naturalization were those who were able to successfully complete both the English Language and Civics Examinations. One of the questions on the examination is related to when we celebrate Independence Day and what the purpose of the Declaration of Independence was.
