MILWAUKEE -- It was a very special day for 242 people who gathered at the Holiday Folk Fair International at Wisconsin State Fair Park on Friday, Nov. 22.
They were there to become naturalized citizens of the United States. Among those taking that oath was FOX6's Rob Haswell and his wife.
Haswell was born in Canada. He and his wife moved to the U.S. in 2003 -- and ended up in Wisconsin two years later, when Rob joined FOX6 News.
Wisconsin quickly became the Haswell's home -- in location and in their heart. The couple set out to become American citizens.
"Working for citizenship and seeing what it means to everyone and what it means to people who choose to live here -- it's an important thing and it's a big part
of what makes this such a great country," Haswell said.
