60 New Americans Sworn In



Bookmark and Share

It's a happy day for nearly 60 people who are rewarded for their hard work and dedication to country.
 
A naturalization ceremony was held this morning to swear in new American citizens.
 
"I thank God a lot and my mom that she worked really hard for me."
 
Roberto Diaz' mother brought him and his brother to America from Mexico 20 years ago.
 
"She worked pretty hard. She worked 12 hours a day so we could grow up...so we could be bilingual," said Diaz.
 
Diaz was one of dozens of people at the Federal Courthouse in Fargo echoing the message that they are grateful and happy to be American citizens.
 
U.S. Senator Heidi Heitkamp gave each new citizen a pin and congratulations.
 
"It is absolutely with great pleasure that I welcome you all...you new citizens of our great country," said Heitkamp.
 
"This day will forever remain in your memory, right up there with your wedding day and the birth dates of your children. This is indeed a momentous step, a time to celebrate," said Chief Magistrate Judge Karen Klein.
 
A joyful occasion to be celebrated with family and a newfound sense of being proud to be an American.
  
Naturalization ceremonies are held at the Fargo Federal Courthouse about eight times a year.
