New citizens participate in naturalization ceremony

More than 100 new citizens participated in a special naturalization ceremony Friday at the Duke Energy Center.

The naturalization ceremony is being held in conjunction with the League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC) during its national convention, which is in Cincinnati this week.

This ceremony is part of U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services' annual celebration of Independence Day. Nearly 2,300 candidates will become citizens at approximately 30 special ceremonies held across the country and around the world from June 29 to July 4.

This ceremony celebrates our nation's 235th birthday.

Honored guests and speakers include: The Honorable S. Arthur Spiegel, U.S. District Court Judge, United States District Court for the Southern District of Ohio; Cincinnati Mayor Mark Mallory; USCIS Director Alejandro Mayorkas; and LULAC National President Margaret Moran. Sen. Rob Portman was also in attendance.
