More than 100 new Americans naturalized

More than 100 immigrants from more than 30 countries became American citizens at a ceremony in the Bronx Thursday.



Mayor Bill de Blasio spoke at the ceremony, where the new citizens recited the Pledge of Allegiance.

"I joined to have a better life and better opportunities," Anderson said.
