Duluth welcomed about 15 new citizens to the U.S. Friday at the city courthouse.
The new citizens participated in a naturalization ceremony, along with 18,000 others nationwide, in celebration of Constitution Day and Citizenship Day. The people who participated were from 13 countries in Asia, Europe, Africa, Central America and beyond.
Naturalization is the process by which residents officially receive their citizenship after fulfilling all the requirements set by Congress.
