Gov. Tim Walz shook the hand of every one of the new citizens. Forty people from 25 countries became U.S. citizens Monday, taking the Oath of Allegiance from Chief Judge John R. Tunheim and being welcomed by Walz, in the rotunda of the State Capitol.

Gov. Tim Walz congratulated 40 new U.S. citizens at a naturalization ceremony on Monday, encouraging them to get involved "in all aspects of civic life."

Immigration is "the strength of this nation," Walz told the crowd gathered in the Capitol rotunda. "That's the strength of this state. Your desire to seek citizenship, to seek naturalization, just made Minnesota just a little bit better today."
