MINNEAPOLIS  — One hundred immigrants from 37 different countries are becoming U.S. citizens during a special ceremony in Minneapolis.

Friday’s ceremony will be at noon at the IDS Center’s Crystal Court. The new citizens will take the oath of allegiance to the United States, and Hubert “Buck” Humphrey IV, chief of the Office of Communications for the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, will deliver special remarks.

An estimated 9,000 people are becoming U.S. citizens in 63 special ceremonies held around the country in mid-September.
