For thousands of immigrants who soon will be able to call themselves “American citizens” this Fourth of July will be remembered as the time in which they finally achieved that vaunted and highly desired status. After months, and in many cases, years of awaiting action on petitions, submitting to interviews by immigration officials, hoping to hear good news from their attorneys and studying to take the examination necessary to become a citizen in this country, scores of immigrants will raise their hand to attest their allegiance to this country and be sworn in by officials authorized to make such a proclamation.

The Acting Director of the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), Lori Scialabba, will usher in approximately 9,000 new U.S. citizens during more than 100 naturalization ceremonies across the country from June 30 to July 4.in celebration of the country’s 238th birthday.  “We’re honored to celebrate Independence Day by welcoming new U.S. citizens at ceremonies across the United States,” said Director Scialabba. “It’s our pleasure to celebrate the fulfillment of their dreams of citizenship at the same time we celebrate the birth of our country.” 

Citizenship candidates will take the Oath of Allegiance during numerous ceremonies, including: Nevada’s Las Vegas City Hall; Old Salem Museum and Gardens in Winston-Salem, North Carolina; Turner Field in Atlanta; the Miramar Branch Library & Education Center, Miramar, Florida; Saguaro National Park in Tucson, Arizona; the New York Public Library in New York City; the Seattle Center in Seattle; the National World War II Museum in New Orleans; the Benjamin L. Hooks Central Library in Memphis, Tennessee; and California's Great America Theme Park in Santa Clara, California, according to the USCIS.

Many of the sites for such ceremonies constitute some of the most hallowed historical places which Americans and tourists often choose to visit when endeavoring to learn about the country’s rich heritage. These include George Washington’s home in Mount Vernon, Virginia; Thomas Jefferson’s home of Monticello in Charlottesville, Virginia; the USS Missouri in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii; Mount Rushmore National Memorial in Keystone, South Dakota; the USS Midway in San Diego, California; the Battleship New Jersey in Camden, New Jersey; and Saratoga National Historical Park in Stillwater, New York.

To make the long story short - I wouldn't be here now writing this review if it wasn't for him. He fought with me and for me as if he was defending himself and not some stranger from a foreign country. I will highly recommend him - if your case has any chance at all he is the one you need.
