Megan Nelson of the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services administers the Oath of Allegiance to 30 children ages 4-16 in a special ceremony at the Children’s Museum and Theatre of Maine in Portland on Jan. 11. The new citizens, from the Democratic Republic of Congo, Djibouti, Ecuador, Iraq, People’s Republic of China, Somalia and Uganda, now live in Biddeford, Blue Hill, Brooklin, Gorham, Lewiston, Portland, Sanford and Westbrook. USCIS periodically holds special ceremonies for children to recognize and celebrate their citizenship, which is generally derived through their naturalized parents or adoption.

    Hmmmm, one of the young girls didn’t get the memo that she should use her right hand while reciting the Oath of Allegiance. It won’t matter anyway if her real allegiance is to the Ummah rather than the U.S. Constitution.
