During immigration crackdown, 62 find safe haven
It’s always a moment of exquisite pride to be given the oath of allegiance that finally ushers an immigrant over the threshold into U.S. citizenship, as 62 people learned anew at a Wednesday ceremony.
But there had to be an intense feeling of relief this time, with federal crackdowns on undocumented residents and prospective arrivals at the borders. There are no deportation fears, the worry about the knock at the door. Aloha to all, and welcome to the U.S. — for good.
