This Independence Day, the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) will welcome 5,500 new citizens in around 180 naturalization ceremonies between June 30 and July 7.
The festivities for neutralization are among the events planned to commemorate Independence Day in 2023.
The Fourth of July, often known as Independence Day, is a federal holiday in the United States that honors the date of the United States’ Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776.
In a statement released on Friday, USCIS said that the country’s commitment to welcome immigrants and promoting the advantages of U.S. citizenship for all qualified individuals was reflected through naturalization ceremonies.
USCIS welcomed 974,000 new citizens during the fiscal year (FY) 2022.
As of June 7, USCIS had officially welcomed 588,900 new citizens into the country and had made great strides toward reducing the length of the waiting list for citizenship.
“Promoting citizenship and making the naturalization process accessible to all who are eligible are a beautiful extension of many ideals that birthed our nation 247 years ago,” said Ur M. Jaddou, director of USCIS. This holiday is always a unique chance to reinforce our dedication to the USCIS mission and to greet new citizens as they embark on their American journey.
