5 new U.S. citizens

In recognition of Constitution Week, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) will welcome America’s newest citizens during a special naturalization ceremony at Rowan College at Burlington County’s Votta Hall on Friday, Sept. 16 at 10:00 a.m.

Among the 100 scheduled to take the Oath of Allegiance is former Philadelphia Flyer and current NBC Sports Analyst Scott Hartnell.

USCIS Mount Laurel Field Office Supervisor Keith Dorr will administer the Oath of Allegiance. Dr. Michael A. Cioce, president of RCBC, and Burlington County Commissioner Balvir Singh will address the new citizens. Kenneth Mariano, RCBC’s political science instructor and program coordinator, will serve as master of ceremonies. Shereen Chen, founder and managing partner of Chen-Gray Law Group, will offer congratulatory remarks.

100 candidates from over 43 countries, from Algeria to Vietnam, will become citizens during the ceremony.

During Constitution Week, USCIS and RCBC celebrate the connection between the Constitution and citizenship and encourage all Americans to reflect on what it means to be a citizen of the United States.
