On October 17, 2019, 35 individuals were naturalized as new United States citizens at the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Louisiana. The Honorable Greg G. Guidry, District Judge for the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Louisiana, presided over the ceremony. The naturalization candidates originated from countries around the world, including Vietnam, Ecuador, Russia, Dominican Republic, Mexico, Philippines, Honduras, Ukraine, Colombia, Cambodia, Costa Rica, Yemen, Lebanon, Haiti, and Canada. After the candidates individually announced their names and countries of origin, they took the Oath of Allegiance to the United States. The new citizens then received certificates of naturalization and posed for pictures with Judge Guidry. Following the ceremony, citizens were invited to complete voter registration applications by the New Orleans Chapter of the League of Women Voters.
