PROUD NEW U.S. CITIZEN !!!

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 !!!

Congratulations!
Thank you for caring enough about our nation to legally become one of us.
You were always welcome as a legal resident alien, but even more welcome as a fellow citizen!

Of course, we now expect you to forswear Canadian, and speak only Amurrican. You can start by saying “color” instead of “colour”. ;^)

I was offered the chance to jump while in AIT at Ft. Gordon, and I signed up...then I found out I was already with-child (then-hubby didn't jump either). After having kids, I became a total scaredy-cat!!

Welcome on in.

Water's warm isn't it?

Your persistence and following the legal rules give us reason to pause and think...about hordes in the streets demanding to be treated on par with you and many others, even though they themselves had no such respect for our immigration laws and order.

My hat is off to you on this Sunday morning in Japan.

Welcome Live Free. And THANK YOU for doing it the right way. I have absolutely no problem with someone wanting to come to America, to come here and be one of us, to do it right, by the law. All are welcome. It is the illegals I detest. I love folks like you who do it the right way. Good for you. God bless you and welcome MY FELLOW AMERICAN!!

I’m really surprised you haven’t yet received a notice to come for the Citizenship Interview and Testing. Perhaps the Immigration Office in Massachusetts is backlogged ? I don’t know. But I was pleasantly surprised at how quickly everything went at the Machester NH Immigration Office.

Actually, I’ve already been doing that for a long time now ! It seems natural to me to write favor, instead of favour and humor instead of humour, color instead of colour, etc. Good old Noah Webster !

The Boston office is still dealing with the April 2007 applications. Now the USCIS are saying that people who applied for Citizenship after June 1st (like myself) may take 16 to 18 months to be done!!! I think you are extremely fortunate :)

Wow ... that’s far away ! Do you have any family in the U.S. ? I hope you will be able to have some family members or friends present at the Oath Ceremony to share your excitement! All my family (cousins) are in Canada, and nobody was able to come, but I was blessed to have some of my Church family members attend the Ceremony, along with my hubby.

93 new citizens were sworn in from 33 different countries!
It was a WONDERFUL ceremony ! Every nationality you could imagine
was represented !


Well Done and Welcome New Fellow Citizen!

And always remember on FR...when some of us (including "moi")
scream and shout about ILLEGAL immigrants...
our emotions and JOY are even greater at sight/sound of a swearing-in
ceremony of our new fellow citizens...
those folks that "played by the rules" and made the sacrifices
(some often very costly) to find their way to being "Americans".

ILLEGAL immigrants who are abusing the privileges of this country (by getting free medical care, education, having “anchor babies”, committing crimes, etc.) DRIVE ME NUTS. Something has got to be done to stop this nonsense, and “amnesty” is NOT the answer !

To: Live Free NH; Gay State Conservative

Congratulations, welcome, and thanks for wanting to become a legal US citizen. You might want to give consideration to Gay State Conservative’s procedure, I do this in TX and it’s especially valuable when for instance you know GWB has a lock on the state in the primary, you can “cross over” and sabotage the opposition. Only downside is if say GWB wound up in a runoff, and you voted in the dim party to screw them up more, you couldn’t return to the repubbie side for the runoff. But you can still vote for GWB in the general.

A big THANK YOU to all my fellow Freepers for the wonderful welcoming comments ! It’s very heart warming ! I am truly blessed to have been given the gift of U.S. Citizenship. I will never forget my Canadian “roots” (another wonderful country !), and now I am blessed with citizenship of this great land of the Pilgrims!

Another great blessing in the U.S. is Free Republic - I’ve been a member since 2001 - thank you Jim Rob for this awesome conservative web forum !

No, I never went to the New Hampshire Technical College event. I did however go to the “Picnic with W” event Aug. 6, 2004 in Stratham NH, and I helped quite a bit with the Bush/Cheney campaign in 2004 (phone banks, mailings, etc.)
