Michelle Obama Plugs Immigrants, Immigration Reform at Naturalization Ceremony

AP reports on how Michelle Obama turned a flag-waving naturalization ceremony for 50 new U.S. citizens Wednesday into a platform to call for action on the long-bogged-down issue of immigration.

Fifty people from 44 nations, from Afghanistan to Zimbabwe, took the oath in the historic setting of the National Archives rotunda, where originals of the U.S. Constitution, Declaration of Independence and Bill of Rights are displayed.

The First Lady lauded the benefits that immigrants bring the United States and prodded Congress to address immigration reform.
