WASHINGTON, DC— “The Risch Law Firm embraces the responsibility of making the American dream a reality for countless foreign families. Just as the independence of the USA brought freedom and opportunities, our firm aims to provide a better life for immigrants, overcoming barriers and building a promising future. Together, we celebrate the spirit of independence and the pursuit of happiness,” reaffirms Miguel Risch, Principal Attorney at Risch Law Firm during the 4th of July festivities.
In this regard, the American government brings excellent news, to which we feel a part of this moment for the life and progress of the United States.
U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services will celebrate Independence Day this year by welcoming more than 5,500 new citizens in over 180 naturalization ceremonies between June 30 and July 7.
These ceremonies demonstrate USCIS’s commitment to welcoming immigrants and promoting the benefits of U.S. citizenship for all eligible individuals. In the 2022 fiscal year (FY), the USCIS granted citizenship to 974,000 new U.S. citizens. So far in the 2023 FY, USCIS has granted citizenship to 588,900 new U.S. citizens as of June 7, making significant progress in reducing their naturalization backlog.
“Promoting citizenship and making the naturalization process accessible to all who are eligible are a beautiful extension of the many ideals that birthed our nation 247 years ago,” said USCIS Director Ur M. Jaddou. “This holiday is always a special opportunity to reaffirm our commitment to the USCIS mission and to welcome new citizens as they begin their American journey.”
Every July 4th, the U.S. celebrates the day the Second Continental Congress adopted the Declaration of Independence in 1776, declaring that the 13 American colonies regarded themselves as a new nation—the United States of America—and were no longer part of the British Empire.
