Each year on September 17, the United States recognizes the 1787 signing of the U.S. Constitution. Since 2004, this date has been known as “Constitution Day and Citizenship Day”.
This year the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) recognized this important date by welcoming more than 27,000 newly-naturalized immigrants.
At the ceremony, USCIS Director León Rodríguez stated, “U.S. citizenship is defined by what we have in common: equal rights, responsibilities, and opportunities . . . As we celebrate our Constitution this week, more than 27,000 new U.S. citizens will now be able to vote, volunteer, participate, and become engaged in issues that are important to them and their families.”
