Hundreds of new citizens cheer.

The US Citizenship and Immigration Services presented 1,665 candidates for naturalization at the ceremony. US Magistrate Judge Marianne Bowler administered the Oath of Allegiance.

"I am very happy that I went through the naturalization process, now I am complete and very much looking forward to cast my vote this fall," said Sand T, a native of Malaysia.

"I got emotional listening to Judge Marianne Bowler's speech.  I hope to find her speech on YouTube someday."
