The USCIS has published a form entitled “Important Information for New Citizens” that provides a list of some of the top rights and responsibilities assumed by all U.S. citizens, including the right to freely express oneself and the responsibility to uphold the Constitution. The publication also provides a summary of the actions to be taken upon becoming a U.S. citizen. The next steps include the following:
• Applying for a U.S passport
• Updating your Social Security record
• Registering to vote
• Obtaining a Certificate of Citizenship for your children
• Sponsoring family members to come to the U.S.
