Disney to Host July 4 Citizenship Ceremony
STEVE INSKEEP, host:
And we can't let the subject of immigration slip away without letting you know that Disney World will host more than 1,000 immigrants during a citizenship ceremony on July 4th. The ceremony will be the park's first mass naturalization ceremony, and, make of this what you will, it will be held at Cinderella's Castle. The Cuban singer Gloria Estefan will sing the National Anthem. Country Western singer Lee Greenwood will sing "God Bless America," and U.S. Air Force F-15s will fly overhead to close the event.
