Indian software engineer becomes US citizen in rare ceremony at White House hosted by Trump
NEW YORK/WASHINGTON: President Donald Trump has presided over a rare naturalisation ceremony at the White House where five immigrants, including a software developer from India, were sworn in as American citizens, as the US leader welcomed them to the "magnificent nation” that is comprised of every race, religion and colour.
Trump hosted the naturalisation ceremony at the White House and the video of the ceremony was played during the second night of the Republican National Convention on Tuesday.
Immigrants from five countries - India, Bolivia, Lebanon, Sudan and Ghana, stood in a line during the ceremony in the White House.
With their right hand raised and a US flag in their left hand, they were administered the Oath of Allegiance by Acting United States Secretary of Homeland Security Chad Wolf, while Trump looked on.
Sudha Sundari Narayanan, a software developer from India, was among those sworn in as American citizens.
“Today America rejoices as we welcome five absolutely incredible new members into our great American family. You are now fellow citizens of the greatest nation on the face of God's Earth. Congratulations,” Trump said.
Trump said the newly sworn-in American citizens followed the rules, obeyed the laws, learned the nation's history, embraced American values and proved themselves to be men and women of the highest integrity.
“It's not so easy. You went through a lot and we appreciate you being here with us today. You've earned the most prized treasured, cherished and priceless possession anywhere in the world. It's called American citizenship. There is no higher honour and no greater privilege,” Trump said adding that it is an honour for him to be their President.
Later, Trump read out the names and a few details of the five new citizens.
Trump said Narayanan is a “phenomenal success", born in India, who came to the United States 13 years ago.
“Sudha is a talented software developer and she and her husband are raising two beautiful, wonderful children ‘the apples of your life'. Thank you very much and congratulations. Fantastic job.”
Trump handed Narayanan, who was wearing a bright coral pink sari, her Certificate of Citizenship.
In his remarks, Trump congratulated the new citizens and said it is his honour to be with them. He added that with the rights and fre ms each of them now enjoy as citizens, there is no dream beyond their wildest reach because Americans can do anything.

Trump if re-elected will be great friend to India. On the other hand, Boden will be licking the boots of China and appeasing Paxtan.
Trump has played a very important role in bringing China to its kneeIndian living in American should support him.
Trump is a great leader. Indians will be welcomed in USA.
Had they been in India, they wud have become mere Computer Operators in a dilipidated building located somewhere in a filthy city with maddening crowds.
HISTORIC DAY for MOST Indians in USA
We should hold a kick out ceremony for that lady in India, who values other countries more than her own country!!
Approximately 75% of H1B visa holders in USA are Indian. Recently Donald Trump issued an order to block H1B visas which caused many Indian American families to be separated and become jobless. Also Trump is trying to stop all outsourcing and call centers in order to create more jobs for US citizens. This also causing many people in India to become jobless
That smile from Trump close to smirk says it all
What about his sister? She calls him a liar.
Days of Trump are numbered and the recent police brutality on the black man in Wisconsin would throw him out of the White House
American politics is no different from Indian politics when the elections are around the corner..!!
He has become more like an Indian politician. Has learnt lot of election gimmick s.
Many Indians do not like the Republicans due to what Nixon did in 1971 by sending a US fleet in support of P0rkistan , but Trump has been a good friend to us..Hope he comes back..
Citizenship in just 13 years, she is lucky. There are many who came before her studied in US still not getting GC
Bye bye india

Trump seems to be very desperate to win the upcoming elections. Had only he worked for his country instead of indulging in idiocy through out his term, he would not have to do such stunts to impress Americans
election gimmick. this is done to garner votes. Once the election is over then he will return to original color.
I support Trump as he is a great leader who keeps his Nation 1st
Trump has insulted India by awarding an Indian citizenship along with countries such as Sudan, Ghana and Lebenon. How could he equate us with them? Don't vote for him Indians !
He'll do anything to win these elections!
LOL. Guy has learnt a lot from Indian politicians..
This is for US Elections, to praise Indians to vote in his favour.
