Posted on 12/15/2007 11:37:37 AM PST by Live Free NH
After being a Legal Permanent U.S. Resident for the past 35 years (Canadian citizen /my hubby is U.S. citizen by birth), yesterday December 14, 2007, I was sworn in as a U.S. CITIZEN at the U.S. District Court in Concord, NH !! I am SO PROUD and SO EXCITED !!
93 new citizens were sworn in from 33 different countries! It was a WONDERFUL ceremony ! Every nationality you could imagine was represented !
Within 3 hours of getting sworn in, I went to my local Town Hall and REGISTERED TO VOTE ! So I will be "good to go" for the New Hampshire Primary on January 8th ! whooo-hooo !!!
You make us proud.
Congratulations!! i am happy to have you as a fellow American citizen.
Bless You...thank you...and vote conservative
Congratulations! Naturalized citizens often appreciate what makes this country GREAT so much more than those born into it.
Congratulations on becoming a citizen of this great country. We have our problems but it is still the greatest! May all your dreams come true. What a way to start a new year.
A warm welcome to LiveFree and all other newly-minted Americans today — you have become our brothers and sisters in this greatest nation on earth. God bless America!
Congratulations, my fellow American.
Blessings for doing G-d's will.
Thank you !
I already declared myself a Republican! (I consider myself a CONSERVATIVE first, Republican second.)
I REALLY REALLY like Duncan Hunter, and feel that if I vote for him, I won’t have to compromise my conservative principles in any way!
Congratulations fellow citizen.
God bless you on this happy occasion.
Congratulations!!! I’m glad I can call you a fellow citizen! :-)
Congrats....thanks for doing it the legal way.
Congratulations, to a new citizen who did it the RIGHT way!
Welcome! Congratulations to you!! I’m proud of you.
Congratulations!!!! How long did the process take since you had applied until you swore the oath?
Welcome! You must feel so proud.
Congratulations! You do us all proud in showing respect for us by becoming a legal citizen rather than just skittering around the shadows. We need more immigrants like you.
We really need an organization dedicated to assisting America loving immigrants in their efforts to become citizens. Those that love the principles that this country was founded on should be moved to the front of the line.
Congratulations!!! I’m proud to be able to call you a fellow citizen. (I love these stories.)
Congratulations, we’re glad to have you as a fellow American!
Here's a little suggestion to you from a Gay Stater (right down I-93 from ya,perhaps).IIRC,NH has the same kind of law that we have down here that allows you to register as "independent" or "unenrolled".By doing so,you can take a ballot for *either* party on primary day and then change to whatever other status you choose (Republican,independent,etc).That was you can,for example,take a democrat ballot and vote for the most outrageous of the candidates (Kusinich?) and really foul up the works.I've done that here in the Gay State and love doing it.Perfectly legal and more fun than you can imagine.
Just a suggestion.
You have more appreciation for citizenship in the U.S.A. than most born here! Congratulations and WELCOME, FELLOW CITIZEN!
Thank you for the good wishes. As you can well imagine, illegal immigration and the “amnesty” legislation that almost got passed last June, is a real SORE point with me ! When that law was being debated, I called our Senators’ offices, and Congressmans’ Offices and SCREAMED blue murder about it !! I made sure they understood that this was a TOTAL INSULT to those of us who are in the “LEGAL pipeline”, waiting to be processed the proper way.
Thank you for caring enough about your country(sounds nice dont it?,lol)to do it the right way. Welcome home American!!!
Congadulations and Merry Christmas.
I will have a drink in your honor this evening!
The process went WAY faster than I expected. Historically, all my interaction with U.S.C.I.S. (formerly I.N.S.) has moved slower than a dinosaur, with lots of complications, screw-ups, and glitches. However, the Citizenship Application process went really well.
I applied July 24, 2007. I was notified to come for fingerprinting Sept.26, 2007, for FBI background check. Then I was asked to appear Nov. 6th for the Citizenship Interview and Testing (I got 100% on the test). Then the Oath Ceremony was yesterday Dec. 14. I never dreamt that I’d get sworn in before the end of 2007. I expected that nothing would happen with my application until next year sometime. So, the whole process went very well, and I am extremely pleased!
I'm sure you got a nice warm welcome from your Congresscritter's office given that both of NH's House seats are now occupied by the most worthless Maoists you can imagine.
WOW!!!! That is Super Fast. I applied in June 2007 and I have not received yet a letter for interview. Congratulations again :)
If you remember a lot of us voted for Wallace back in the ‘70’s, very strange feeling. The upside was, at that time you could redeclare on the way out.
Congrats, fellow American.
Thank you for doing it legally.
Congratulations Live Free NH. You are now a citizen of the greatest country on earth. May blessings come your way.
Congratulations! You done us proud!
Thanks for sharing with us your great day. We’re way more the winning party on this deal. Thank you for becoming an American and making this a better country.
