More than 19,000 foreigners will become US citizens in seven days

Washington.- Plus 19,000 foreign nationals will become United States citizens in 235 ceremonies honoring Constitution Day and Citizenship Dayreported today the Citizenship and Immigration Service (USCIS).

Since the president Joe Biden arrived at the White House in January 2021“USCIS has worked tirelessly in communities to educate about citizenship consistent with our mission to preserve the promise of America as a welcoming country,” said agency director Ur M. Jaddou.

This country commemorates on September 17 the Day of the Constitution and the citizenship day as part of the so-called Constitution Week, which runs from September 17 to 23.

These celebrations commemorate the signing of the US Constitution on September 17, 1787 and what in 1940 began as I Am an American Day and became Citizenship Day in 1952.

This year these ceremonies include one in the Tumacácori National Historical Park, in Arizona, in the world music festival and Lunches in Des Moines, Iowa, this Friday, and another on the 19th at the Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art in Bentonville, Arkansas.
