MIAMI (AP) -- Hundreds of immigrants living in Florida will celebrate July 4 by becoming U.S. citizens.

Two hundred immigrants from 50 countries are expected to take the oath of allegiance in Miami Thursday. The naturalization ceremony will be held at Miami Dade College's Freedom Tower, considered the "Ellis Island of the South" for its role in providing assistance to Cuban refugees a half century ago.

The event is one of more than 100 ceremonies planned nationwide. In all, more than 7,800 immigrants will become U.S. citizens.
