NEW YORK, NY - FEBRUARY 19: Sixth grader Maximilian Poncet , 12, born in France, holds his hand as for the oath of allegiance while awaiting his American citizenship certificate at the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), office on February 19, 2013 in New York City. His mother is a marketing consultant, and the family lives in New York City. Almost 300 foreign-born children of naturalized immigrants received citizenship certificates Tuesday at the USCIS 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.
