Immigration "Feel Good Story": Doctor gets US citizenship certificate from immigration officer whose life he saved

Associated Press reports that a citizenship ceremony was made extra special this week for an immigration officer who presented a naturalization certificate to a doctor from Peru who saved her life with an emergency brain surgery. Before 450 people from 75 countries in the Tampa Convention Center, immigration services officer Melissa Wingerd presented Dr. Gabriel Gonzales-Portillo his naturalization certificate. "The new citizens clapped, cheered and waved U.S. flags."
