About 200 immigrants will be sworn in as new US citizens at the John F Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum in Boston. Massachusetts US District Court Judge Dennis Saylor will preside over the naturalisation ceremony today afternoon. The library will present everyone with a commemorative edition of Kennedy's inaugural address. Kennedy served as America's 35th president and also was the nation's first Irish-Catholic commander in chief.
His great-grandparents immigrated to the country from Ireland. The ceremony is sponsored by the US Department of Justice and the US Citizenship and Immigration Services.
