Oath of Allegiance Administrations

Release Date: 
Tuesday, January 5, 2021

On September 8-11, October 1, and December 3, 2020, the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Louisiana held Oath of Allegiance Administrations in which 80 individuals became U.S. citizens.  The Honorable Nannette Jolivette Brown, Chief Judge for the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Louisiana, administered the Oath of Allegiance to the naturalization candidates.  The oath administrations were held outside the U.S. District Courthouse, on the courthouse porch, to ensure that all participants remained safe in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic.  In addition, participants wore masks and maintained at least a 6-foot distance from each other.  Members of the New Orleans Chapter of the League of Women Voters were on hand to assist new citizens in registering to vote, and many of the new citizens registered in time to vote in the most recent presidential election.   The oath administrations were a true symbol of the new citizens’ fortitude and resolve, as well as the Court’s commitment to continuing its operations in a safe and mindful manner.  To view photographs of these oath administrations, please select this link.
