75 in Hawaii to become new citizens before July 4

By Associated Press

HONOLULU (AP) Seventy-five people in Hawaii will be celebrating Independence Day as new U.S. citizens.

They are expected to take the oath of allegiance during a naturalization ceremony Thursday aboard the Battleship Missouri Memorial at Pearl Harbor.

According to U.S. Citizenship and Immigrations Services, the soon-to-be Americans range in age from 18 to 75 and are originally from 19 countries including Argentina, Germany, India, Jamaica and Vietnam.

They will join about 9,000 new citizens being naturalized at more than 100 ceremonies across the country from June 30 to July 5.

Immigration officials are asking participants to share their ceremony experiences and photos on Twitter using #newUScitizen.
