Green Card Holders Become US Citizens at Special Ceremony

A group of new American citizens were welcomed by Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Supreme Court Justice. Her father, a Russian immigrant, arrived in the US at the age of 13. He had no fortune and spoke no English. Her mother was born four months after the family arrived at Ellis Island from Poland. Ginsburg, age 85, administered the oath of allegiance to the newly minted American citizens coming from 59 countries. She was an inspiration to all 201 by talking about her own family’s experiences as a “testament to our nation’s promise.” Living in the US can be a dream come true for you and your family.

She spoke of her own family’s immigration to America. She encouraged each new American citizen to use their right to vote. Mamadou Alpha Diallo, who came from Guinea said, “I felt so important. Sitting in front of somebody so special, I felt so special. I feel like I’m in my own country now.” Many Green Card Lottery applications are denied due to errors on the application.
