USCIS Celebrates Independence Day

On July, 4th  America celebrated Independence Day. The United States Citizenship and Immigration Services commemorated the nation’s birthday by holding a number of special naturalization ceremonies. We welcomed about 9000 new citizens.

“We’re honored to celebrate Independence Day by welcoming new U.S. citizens at ceremonies across the United States,” said USCIS Acting Director Lori Scialabba. “It’s our pleasure to celebrate the fulfillment of their dreams of citizenship at the same time we celebrate the birth of our country.”

The process of becoming a US citizen takes some time and quite considerable effort. To learn more about requirements for naturalization and application procedure visit our website at

Naturalization ceremony is the final step of this process when successful candidates take the Oath of Allegiance to the United States. This year the ceremonies were help at a number of locations integral to American history like George Washington’s Mount Vernon in Mount Vernon, Virginia; Thomas Jefferson’s Monticello in Charlottesville, Virginia; the USS Missouri in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii; Mount Rushmore National Memorial in Keystone, South Dakota; the USS Midway in San Diego, California; the Battleship New Jersey in Camden, New Jersey; and Saratoga National Historical Park in Stillwater, New York.

The team of Law Office of Katerina Utekhina congratulates new American citizens and wishes them a happy life.
