About 200 immigrants will be sworn in as new US citizens at the John F Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum in Boston.

Massachusetts US District Court Judge Dennis Saylor will preside over the naturalisation ceremony on Wednesday afternoon.

The library will present everyone with a commemorative edition of Kennedy’s inaugural address.

Kennedy served as America’s 35th president and also was the nation’s first Irish-Catholic commander in chief. His great-grandparents immigrated to the country from Ireland.

The ceremony is sponsored by the US Department of Justice and the U. Citizenship and Immigration Services.
