Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas shared a story of his immigrant parents’ journey to the US as refugees. After the ceremony, he told the newcomers the country is better because of its identity and fabric as a country of immigrants. The president took the opportunity to speak about his administration’s efforts to reform the current US immigration system.
