Our 9 month series, New Hampshire's Immigration Story explored just that... the vast history of who came to New Hampshire, when they came, why they came, the challenges they faced once they landed on Granite State soil and the contributions that they brought to our state. The Exchange, Word of Mouth, and our News Department looked at the issue of immigration from its first arrivals to the newest refugees calling New Hampshire home.We saw how immigration affects our economy, health care, education system, culture and our current system of law. We also looked at what's going on in New Hampshire today, as we uncovered the groups, societies and little known people who are making an impact all over the state.Funding for NH's Immigration Story is brought to you in part by: New Hampshire Humanities Council, Norwin S. and Elizabeth N. Bean Foundation, The Gertrude Couch Trust0000017a-15d9-d736-a57f-17ff89e10000

New Hampshire has 50 new Americans calling it home as of today. They were sworn in as new citizens at a ceremony in Manchester Wednesday, representing 27 nations. This is the fifth year for this annual naturalization ceremony. 

Manuel Sanchez, from the Dominican Republic, is one of the new citizens.

"This means a lot you know? Finally becoming a citizen is what I wanted since I came here. I'm finally moving forward."

The new Americans took an oath of allegiance and were then presented with certificates of citizenship.
