"I hereby declare, on oath, that I absolutely and entirely renounce and abjure all allegiance and fidelity to any foreign prince, potentate, state or sovereignty, of whom or which I have heretofore been a subject or citizen; that I will support and defend the Constitution and laws of the United States of America against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I will bear arms on behalf of the United States when required by the law; that I will perform noncombatant service in the armed forces of the United States when required by the law; that I will perform work of national importance under civilian direction when required by the law; and that I take this obligation freely without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; so help me God."
I proudly took this oath July 30, 2004
My wife took this oath in May, 2006.
It does indeed, bring a lump to one’s throat...
A belated welcome, Citizen.
God bless you both.
IF this oath is correct, how the hell do we allow dual citizenship?
I took this oath on 23 Aug , 2008.
Welcome all new Citizens. God bless you.
[I]entirely renounce and abjure all allegiance and fidelity to any foreign prince, potentate, state or sovereignty It doesn't get any clearer than that!
I proudly took this oath in 1968, after the required 5 years of being a legal resident. I was 19, and couldn’t wait to vote. In 1972 I registered as a Republican and voted for Nixon. I’ve been voting Republican ever since...and now I have so many doubts about voting Republican again. What is the difference between the two parties? “When salt looses its flavor, it is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled by men.”
I took this Oath Dec. 14, 2007. I am a proud US Citizen, and very thankful for our outstanding Military folks. God bless our beautiful country.
Except that bit about renouncing foreign allegiance/citizenship is now ignored by our government that has shrugged and permits dual citizenship even among immigrants.
And Islamists say it means nothing and that they don’t have to support any of America’s wars against Islamic nations.
