29 People Take Citizenship Oath In Fergus Falls

FERGUS FALLS, Minn. (AP) — Twenty-nine people from 18 counties are brand new U.S citizens after taking the Oath of Allegiance in Fergus Falls.

A naturalization ceremony Thursday at the federal courthouse included immigrants from Afghanistan, Argentina, Bosnia, China, Somalia and Iraq, among other countries, who are now U.S. citizens.

The oath, in part, says the person “will support and defend the Constitution and laws of the United States of America against all enemies, foreign and domestic.”

KBRF radio says it was the 21st naturalization ceremony in Fergus Falls.
