TUPELO, Miss. (WTVA) - Fifteen new American citizens took their oaths of allegiance in Tupelo on Friday.
The 15 come from 10 different nations.
The special ceremony was held at the Natchez Trace Parkway Visitor Center.
“I feel good because I am one of the persons to come over here,” said Nida Lech of the Philippines.
She said it’s hard for poor Filipinos to get a travel visa, but her husband was able to get her one.
