LAS VEGAS (AP) - U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services is planning a ceremony to welcome more than 1,100 new citizens to the
United States in Las Vegas.
Federal officials say the Monday ceremony is expected to be held
at Cashman Theatre, where Las Vegas-area residents from 93
countries are to be granted U.S. citizenship.
U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services says it naturalized nearly 700,000 citizens across the country last year. The agency says more than 6,700 were in Las Vegas, and that annual total has already been surpassed this year.
