Watch: Indian software engineer becomes US citizen in ceremony hosted by Trump
US President Donald Trump hosted a rare naturalization ceremony at the White House to confer citizenship to five immigrants. The immigrants from India, Bolivia, Lebanon, Sudan and Ghana, stood in a line during the ceremony in the White House with their right hand raised and a US flag in their left hand as they were administered the Oath of Allegiance. Among the five was an Indian software engineer, Sudha Sundari Narayanan, who migrated to the US 13 years ago. ‘Sudha is a talented software developer and she and her husband are raising two beautiful, wonderful children ‘the apples of your life’. Thank you very much,’ President Trump said during the ceremony. Lauding the 5 people, Trump said that they had followed the rules, obeyed the laws, learned the nation’s history, embraced American values and proved themselves to be men and women of the highest integrity. The ceremony comes as US prepares for Presidential elections in the month of November. Trump has often been accused of formulating policies which are harsh on the immigrant population.
