Oh goodie, more people!
Let me guess they all speak English right?
Who pays for them to become citizens?
The paperwork,verifying who they are,putting on classes,testing and of course the graduation ceremony.
The melting pot runneth over.

Congratulations to all of OUR new citizens. We are glad your here, and we hope you prosper and thrive in the greatest country on Earth.

Please ignore those that are here illegally, as they dont think they need to spend the time or effort that you have to become citizens. You have all taken the first big step in securing a better future for both you and your families.

Your just as retarded as your namesake. These people didnt duck behind the door, or sneak in, they followed the rules that we set. They are taking an OATH today, with hands raised...in front of an American flag. You will probably disagree, but that means something significant to me, as it should to every other citizen.

It's pretty clear to me that many of you who posted here have no idea what it takes to become a citizen of this country.

Applicants must:
1. Are at least 18 years old and a lawful permanent resident ("green card" holder);
2. Have resided continuously in the United States, having been lawfully admitted for permanent residence, for five years immediately preceding the date you filed your application for naturalization, or
3. Have, after having been removed from conditional permanent resident status, based upon your marriage to a U.S. citizen, having resided in the United States for one year after the date the condition was removed;
4. Have resided continuously in the United States at all times after your application to the time and date of your admission for citizenship;
5. Have, during all periods of time referred to above, been and still are a person of good moral character;
6. Have no outstanding deportation or removal order and no pending deportation or removal proceeding;
7. Have the ability to read, write, speak, and understand simple words and phrases in English;
8. Have knowledge and understanding of the fundamentals of U.S. history and government;
9. Are attached to, and can support, the principles of the U.S. Constitution and can swear allegiance to the United States.

Pay special attention to numbers 7-9. They have to take and pass tests. Based on the moronic comments of a couple of you, I would be willing to bet you would fail those same tests.

It's hard to not find it amusing that someone named "Retired Soldier" calls other people names like a fifth grader. I find your comments most amusing. Keep up the good work soldier.:) I know this comment is "spam" but i just couldn't resist.

I'm glad your amused. 5TH grade level comments to amuse someone with a 5TH grade sense of humor. Sorry, I couldn't resist either.

With liberty and justice for all...I would like to see these words added: including the unborn.
