CEDAR FALLS (KWWL) -

151 new U.S. citizens from 53 countries will be naturalized Tuesday at a ceremony on the campus of the University of Northern Iowa in Cedar Falls.

U.S. Chief Magistrate Judge Jon S. Scoles will preside over the ceremony.

After naturalization, foreign-born citizens enjoy nearly all the same benefits, rights and responsibilities that the Constitution gives to native-born U.S. citizens, including the right to vote.

During fiscal year 2014, approximately 654,000 immigrants were naturalized nationwide.
