NEW YORK, NY - FEBRUARY 19: Juan Vasquez, 17, (L), and his brother David Vasquez, 18, both from the Dominican Republic, await their American citizenship certificates at the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), office on February 19, 2013 in New York City. They live in the Bronx, New York with their mother Maria Arias, who works in a restaurant. Almost 300 foreign-born children of naturalized immigrants received citizenship certificates Tuesday at the center during the special event. Children of naturalized immigrants receive U.S. citizenship if they arrive to the United States as minors, but they must go through a process at USCIS to receive official citizenship documents proving they have become Americans.
