Naturalization ceremony welcomes thousands of new US citizens

This year, the 4th July holiday was more than a celebration of the nation's independence for many immigrants.

Because of this, immigrants sometimes resort to other methods in order to stay and maintain the only life that they have known. Unfortunately, these methods do have legal risks.
