Some 118,000 immigrants applied for citizenship in the New York City district and 2,500 children received citizenship certificates 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 the legal certificate. (Photo by John Moore/Getty Images)
