Independence Day Celebrated Across the Country with Naturalization Ceremonies

Independence Day, the day the United States celebrates its birth, is a fitting holiday for naturalization ceremonies. Each year, the days leading up to July 4 are filled with special naturalization ceremonies, often held at historic sites across the United States.

This year the USCIS expects to naturalize over 4,000 new citizens between July 1–4 at over 50 locations, including the National World War II Museum in New Orleans, LA and Monticello in Charlottesville, VA. The USCIS encourages new citizens, β€œto share your ceremony experiences and photos via Twitter and other social media, using the hashtag #newUScitizen.”
