Children Receive U.S. Citizenship Certificates In New York
NEW YORK, NY - JANUARY 29: Domminican immigrant Yordi Guzman, 16, sleeps against his mother Hingrid Guzman while awaiting an interview for his U.S. citizenship application at the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), district office on January 29, 2013 in New York City. Some 118,000 immigrants applied for U.S. citizenship in the New York City district, and 2,500 children received citizenship certificates there in 2012. Although minors of naturalized immigrants usually receive U.S. citizenship, they must go through a process at the USCIS in order to receive legal certificates. (Photo by John Moore/Getty Images)
