In an attempt to push for more pathways to citizenship, President Joe Biden will hold a naturalization ceremony on Friday at the White House. In the ceremony, 21 immigrants will become citizens of the United States of America. An administration official said that Biden would use the moment to call for the option of citizenship for immigrants who were brought to the U.S. illegally as children, for foreign-born people who have temporary protected status due to strife in their birth countries and for farm workers. The event will also see the recognization of Sandra Lindsay as an Outstanding American by Choice, a U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services program that recognizes citizens who have been naturalization. Working as the director of nursing for critical care at Northwell Health’s Long Island Jewish Medical Centre in Queens, New York, Lindsay is believed to be the first American to be vaccinated against COVID-19 outside of a clinical trial.
