30 refugees become US citizens honoring World Refugee Day

30 former refugees were sworn in today as new US citizens at Pinellas Technical College. World Refugee Day was also celebrated at the event as various former refugees were honored for their service around Tampa Bay. Dancers from The Democratic Republic of the Congo entertained guests and their families with a "Dance of Hope," for the new US citizens. New US citizen, Ali Alazzawi, a native of Baghdad, Iraq, said he has great hope as he looks to the future with his family in the US. "I want to thank everyone for this great opportunity I have been given," he said. (June 16, 2017) SCOTT KEELER | Times
