Record number of Minnesotans sworn in as U.S. citizens

Allie Shah, Star Tribune (Minneapolis) –

The largest naturalization ceremony in Minnesota history took place Thursday at the Minneapolis Convention Center.

About 1,500 people from 100 countries took the Oath of Allegiance, becoming U.S. citizens.

“This is astounding for me,” said U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Robert J. Kressel, who presided over the record-setting ceremony.

Officials from the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services and immigration lawyers say the number of new citizens typically goes up during presidential election years.
