Congrats to 70 of our newest citizens. Do not forget those soliders who are buried at Arlington died for your chance to become a legal US citizen.

That is pretty cool they held it at the cemetery, what a good reminder of how we got to where we are now. I love how the one of the new citizens Chanh Vu changed his name to Shawn and actually acknowledge all the people who died for this country. That is why waiting and going through this process is so important to become a U.S. citizen. You APPRECIATE it.

Absolutely! There is a HUGE difference between “immigrants” with a sincere desire to become "American" and contribute to this country; and illegal aliens simply here to circumvent and manipulate our laws.
