Biden Welcomes Immigrants At Naturalization Ceremony: "Thank You For Choosing Us"

|

The White House released the new Biden version of the video that will play to welcome new U.S. citizens at naturalization ceremonies on Monday.

"First and foremost, I want to thank you for choosing us and believing that America is worthy of your aspirations," the president said.


PRESIDENT JOE BIDEN: Every immigrant comes to America from different circumstances, and for different reasons. But you all have one thing in common: courage. The courage it takes to sacrifice and make this journey. The courage to leave your homes, your lives, your loved ones, and come to a nation that is more than just a place but rather, an idea. An idea that where everyone is created equal and deserves to be treated equally. The idea that we have as a nation, and we can define American in one word: possibilities. Since the founding that very idea has been nurtured, enriched, and advanced by immigrants like you, and like my own ancestors from Ireland...

Today you've earned a new title equal to that of an American president. The title I'm most proud of: citizen, citizen of the United States of America.

I look forward to standing with you... as you build your lives and legacies here... Welcome, my friends. Welcome, my fellow Americans.
