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.
