USCIS Celebrates Constitution Week by Welcoming 19,000 New U.S. Citizens

In celebration of Constitution Week, USCIS recently announced that it would hold more than 235 naturalization ceremonies to welcome over 19,000 new United States citizens from September 17 to September 23. USCIS will also release an Eligible to Naturalize Dashboard with data about populations that may be eligible for naturalization and a "Two Generational Family Toolkit" with information about citizenship and preparation materials for the naturalization test.

Constitution Week begins on both Constitution Day, which honors the signing of the U.S. Constitution on September 17, 1787, and Citizenship Day, which President Truman introduced in 1952. In its original press release, USCIS said, "Each year, USCIS celebrates Constitution Day and Citizenship Day – and Constitution Week – by celebrating the connection between the Constitution and citizenship, reflecting on what it means to be a citizen of the United States, holding special naturalization ceremonies across the country, encouraging new citizens to take action to fully exercise their new rights and responsibilities including registering to vote, and releasing new tools and resources that can help aspiring applicants pursue citizenship."
