SAN ANTONIO -- Florence Rosenberg of La Vernia is a new American citizen, following a March 14 ceremony at the Scottish Rite Temple in San Antonio.

Florence was among 350 applicants representing 154 different countries to participate in the naturalization and oath-taking event. The Oath of Allegiance was administered by U.S. Magistrate Judge Pamela A. Mathy of the U.S. Federal Courts, Western District of Texas.

Originally from Lagos, Nigeria, Florence married her husband, Jeff Rosenberg, on Nov. 14, 2008, in Nigeria.

“Due to the stringent requirements and volumes of paperwork required by the U.S. Customs and Immigration Service and Department of Homeland Security, it took a year to complete her immigration process,” Jeff said. “She arrived in San Antonio on our one-year anniversary, Nov. 14, 2009.

Florence completed her three-year residency requirement and then applied for U.S. citizenship. She had to study U.S. history, government, and civics, and pass the required tests and interview, which she accomplished in January.

“She has been employed as a custodian for the past three years by the La Vernia Independent School District and has gained the admiration and respect of teachers, administration, and fellow support staff members,” her husband said.

Jeff added that he and his wife received assistance from the office of U.S. Rep. Henry Cuellar, who, Jeff said, “... was most helpful in every step of the process of Florence’s coming to America and her obtaining that most wonderful honor of obtaining her citizenship.”
