Naturalization Ceremony At Historic Courthouse

Naturalization Ceremony

Nineteen immigrants — from 19 different countries — gathered together at the Truman Courthouse in Independence Thursday afternoon.

Just moments before they took their Oath of Allegiance to the United States, Jackson County Executive Frank White, Jr. congratulated the soon-to-be new U.S. citizens. He realizes for many of them the journey to citizenship may have been decades in the making. 

"Every new citizen has something of value to contribute to our community, and I'm honored to participate in this memorable ceremony," White said.
