Lincoln Memorial hosting a naturalization ceremony

By Ed O'Keefe

The National Park Service will host a naturalization ceremony for 27 new citizens on Wednesday as part of an agency-wide celebration of U.S. citizenship.

The new citizens hail from 17 countries and will gather at the Lincoln Memorial Reflecting Pool steps at 11 a.m. this morning, according to the Park Service.

U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services Director Alejandro Mayorkas will administer the oath and National Park Service Director Jon Jarvis also plans to speak.

Several national parks are hosting naturalization ceremonies this week as part of a week-long program called, "Embrace Citizenship -- Experience America Through Your National Parks."
